    @rags: I have a few in the pipeline as we speak, but I want the next couple of podcasts to be dealing with the pracitcal day to day stuff and so I won’t get celebs per se, just people who have done things that others may want to learn e.g I have a podcast coming up with Linda of Capital FM where we talk about the process of repatriating to Africa, I get opinions on Melbourne from a wife and mother and learn about how to start up and sell a nursing agency (huge business opportunity) all the while constantly looking for more guests.
    I have realized that I actually enjoy recording the podcasts much more than I do writing and so don’t be surprised if over time, podcasts just become more and more and more……..
