Podcast creators, telling stories that matter

Kevin and Sheelagh met in the backyard. (They’re next door neighbours!) Yes, it’s unusual to meet your business partner like this, but in this case it actually happened!

Sharing a double backyard in Toronto’s west end, and making sure their respective dogs behaved, meant that over time they became friends. They talked about podcasts, Kevin’s start-up, WordPress, hockey, and politics.

Soon, they were discussing the main problems show producers or aspiring podcasters face:

  • Not knowing where to start
  • Not having the time to continue with a podcast show
  • Not having the content or technical skills to produce and promote a show

Their many conversations evolved into an idea. Following in-depth research, more discussions, and input from contacts and friends, Podmotion arrived!

What really makes Podmotion unique? Kevin and Sheelagh’s complementary strengths, allowing them to solve the problems podcasters face.

Strategic Content Creator

Aaron Scherle brings a deep and diverse toolbox to the Podmotion team.

An experienced strategic communicator, planner and leader, Aaron has led communications for a wide variety of organizations, specializing in both external and internal communications.

Aaron is a veteran and was responsible for public affairs for the then-new Canadian Special Operations Regiment, a strategically sensitive role that required close coordination with the highest levels of government communications. During his time at CSOR, Aaron worked with some of the best leaders and journalists in the world. Aaron led the crisis communications response to the April 2009 hijacking of CanJet Flight 918 in Jamaica, he was a member of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics counterterrorism taskforce, and he served in Afghanistan. Aaron was an infantry officer and a platoon commander before turning to public affairs.

When he’s not reading, writing, or watching American politics (his favorite “sport”), Aaron’s usually walking his rescue pit bull, Frankie, or exploring his downtown-Phoenix neighborhood by bicycle with his wife, Pam. (Fun fact: Aaron is a former provincial cycling champion.)
