Since its inception in August of 2020, The Live Ukulele Podcast has received almost 50k downloads across 50+ feature-length episodes.
I’ve had the privilege of talking story with some of the biggest names in the business: Herb Ohta, Jr., James Hill, Neal Chin, Victoria Vox, Jeff Peterson, John Atkins, Tobias Elof, and many more. The podcast has also showcased lesser known gems in the ukulele scene – especially my talented peers and friends from Hawaiʻi Island.
When I’m not chatting with someone else, I muse on the philosophy of learning and teaching ukulele with an emphasis on patience, grace, and bringing a humble perspective to your practice. We’re all on a journey and there’s no rush to be anywhere as long as you are enjoying yourself!
We’ll talk about:
What is a Podcast?
You can think of a podcast like a digital radio show. They can be about anything and created by anybody.
In my case, the audio medium is perfect for teaching ukulele and creates a space for me to speak to some of the more nuanced aspects of learning to play an instrument.
Each show is 30-90 minutes and covers a different topic or interview. If TABs and written instruction is one side of the coin, I like to think of my podcast as the other, focusing on the artsy, psychological side of things.
