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.
