How to Start a Podcast with Ginni Saraswati of Ginni Media
Sri-Lanka born, Australia raised Ginni has had quite the diverse career path. She had a broadcast radio show in Australia for years, she worked on airplanes, she started her own podcast, and currently she owns a podcast producing company that produces nearly 100 shows each year. And now, she’s here to help.
In today’s episode, we sit down with Ginni Saraswati, founder and CEO of Ginni Media, the go-to all-in-one shop for podcast producing. She shares why she moved across the world with only five clients when she went full-time with her podcasting company, she gives tips for starting a podcast, she tells us about the exciting new original shows she’s producing, and so much more.
“So I came to America with five clients, all based in the East Coast. And I thought, ‘Okay, what could change if I go all in?’ and I quickly found out that a lot changed when I went all in. And the company, we started off with five clients, and now we’re up to over 80 that we’ve produced or currently produce for throughout the year. But we’ve launched over 300 podcasts. So it’s been quite a journey.” – Ginni Saraswati
