We had the good fortune of connecting with We Kinda Old The Podcast and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi We Kinda Old, can you share the most important lesson you’ve learned over the course of your career?
Podcasting was new for all of us. Outside of some of us being podcast listeners, we had never assessed the aspects of creating one. So, the entire process of planning, creating, and executing the ideas that we have for our shows takes a level of effort that we weren’t initially prepared for, because so much goes into making sure the execution sets us apart from other podcasts. In addition to the on air aspect of We Kinda Old, we take the business aspect very seriously, which has been challenging with 4 people, who have different schedules and levels of responsibilities outside of the company. All that said to say, balance has been another lesson we are continuing to learn daily.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Our business is centered around our podcast, We Kinda Old. As we know, the podcast market is quite saturated, so standing out from the crowd is one of our main focuses. One of the things that sets us apart is the longevity of our friendship. We have literally known each other for most of our lives. Not only that, we’ve been able to create, produce, and maintain our podcast spread out over 3 states. We’re most proud of the fact that we have been able to leverage our platform to create such a tight knit community. Our conversations touch people that in ways we never anticipated, help people overcome their own personal struggles, and even help some people just get through the day -all by us being true to ourselves and our friendship. Being blessed to create a business out of it was just an added bonus. We got to where we are, literally by maintaining authenticity and sharing our flaws with our audience. We’ve learned and are still learning on this journey that being true to yourself gets you a lot farther than trying to fabricate something for public approval. Those who are meant to hear your story will hear it, appreciate it, and love you even more for it, because it’s real. We want the world to know that we literally are our brand. Anything you get from us is from us directly -inside and out.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We are fairly new to the area but we have found a few spots that we have taken to. We enjoyed the murals and various sights on the Beltline and the waterfalls at Vickery Creek. For great meals and overall dining experiences, we’d recommend the Garden Room, Beetlecat and Breakfast at Barney’s. For a fun time out, the Rooftop at Ponce City Market was a great time to enjoy food, drinks and games. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
A large part of what we do is to reach the hearts and minds of the people who listen to us every week. Our shoutout goes to any and everyone who has ever reached out to us personally to thank us for giving them clarity, perspective or simply a laugh during their day. We also appreciate every like, share, subscriber and comment on our content. It shows us that our efforts are not in vain and that we are doing what we set out to do.
