Tweetable Quotes

"I tried nine to five; didn't work for me. Despite Cigna's best efforts to give me everything I ever asked for, the whole time, I knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur. So I had all kinds of really weird side hustles throughout those four years."
"It's been full time, literally nothing but podcasting. It's been six years later, and I've only done podcasting. I was so excited for it and it got a little bit of buzz. People were talking about it a bit, and I was like, 'Ah, finally, I got my thing.'"
"You have to learn how to prioritize things that you really don't need to do today but make all the difference in the world to make the product better all the time. Learning how to think in systems has helped me with working with clients, working with people, working with employees, and made me a great dog trainer."

"The allure of the New Forest and its ancient beauty really drew me in. Moving here, especially after growing up in the hustle of London, has been a transformative experience. It's taught me the profound impact our environment has on our lives, our creativity, and our work."

"Transitioning from fashion to acting wasn't just a career change, it was a return to my first love.

340 Patrick Keller - Reflecting on Ten Years of Paranormal Podcasting Adventures

📺 Watch & Subscribe on YouTube

In this episode, I speak with Patrick, back for Round 3 on the show. He’s been journeying through the realms of the paranormal on the Big Séance podcast for an entire decade. Together, we dive into the essence of what has made this adventure so special – from the intimate creation of a Victorian séance parlor for your listening pleasure to the honest, unscripted moments that remind us all that podcasting is as human as it gets. Patrick's reflections on the growth of the show, our shared experiences, and the careful curation of a community of the spiritually curious are not just stories; they're the heartbeat of a conversation that has thrived on authenticity and a genuine love for the unexplained.

We also wander down the less-traveled paths of our personal histories, discussing the interplay of spirituality, skepticism, and the responsibility we hold as podcasters in today's world. Patrick's insight into navigating sensitive topics, his own spiritual awakening, and the poignant act of honoring forgotten souls through grave adoptions brings a depth to this episode that is grounding and inspiring. As we celebrate this milestone anniversary, I'm reminded of why this podcast resonates so deeply with me – and hopefully with you too. It's not just the ghostly whispers or the creaking floorboards; it's the shared human experience of seeking, questioning, and connecting that makes our podcast community so extraordinary.

Tweetable Quotes

"I wanted to create a space, an imaginary space, for my listeners to listen to my show. My show is about the paranormal, but the show is the Big Séance podcast. I want you to imagine you're in a séance parlor from the days of psychics and mediums and spiritualism."

"Whenever I do an episode about some individual who played a role in spiritualism or whatever, I sometimes wonder, do they know and do they appreciate us kind of pulling their name back up and is it something that affects them? On the other side, do they feel when people a hundred years later they didn't know, not connected to them?"

"With AI grabbing voices, it kind of worries me. But I have had the conversation with my husband, and I've told him, unless you're in need at that moment, I want my shows to stay available. At least until people forget about me."

In this episode, I speak with Michelle Glogovac, host of 'My Simplified Life,' and we take a deep dive into her captivating journey from the aviation industry to the world of podcasting. Michelle shares her unique experiences, from being a law student to becoming a jet fuel expert, and how a part-time job in college evolved into a 20-year career alongside the private jets of celebrities. Her story isn't just about career transformation; it's about the unexpected twists life can throw at us and the resilience it takes to continue to grow. She brings a down-to-earth perspective on the power of storytelling, the value of genuine connections, and the courage it takes to plot a new course when the familiar path disappears beneath your feet.

Her tales of celebrity encounters, including Michael Jackson, and the shift from negotiating jet fuel contracts to producing podcasts are not only entertaining but also full of insights about personal growth and adaptability.

Tweetable Quotes

"I can't always prevent it from happening, but the conscious reminder through these conversations, through these connections, to slow down. I don't always need to have the immediate answer and say what's on my mind in an effort to either defend myself or protect myself or reduce any tension that's in the room."

"I have absolutely no problem admitting that I don't know anything and that I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. Maybe that's my superpower."

"There's a huge development also that I see in myself as a host, where I just feel like less of... and it also varies from episode to episode I'm talking to a different human, there will be a different energy present, so I'm not able to do it the same to the same degree, but I notice as sort of like development when it comes to the need of straight coming up with the next answer and having everything ready and set and whatever I don't, and there will be a lot of letting things land in my podcast."
