Embracing our curiosity
Launching our podcast
The MAJOR Difference
After years of talking about it and around six months of prep and planning, we finally launched our own podcast - The MAJOR Difference.
It's been an equally educational and exciting journey so far, filled with challenges, resolutions and plenty of curiosity.
Whether it be identifying, researching and booking guests, inevitable scheduling conflicts, establishing an editing and review process for both the audio and transcript, curating insightful and interesting questions, or even the occasional tech hiccup, we've learnt so much these past few months.
Our first season - focusing on Positive Impact - will draw to a close in the coming weeks with our final guest episode launching next week, ahead of a MAJOR roundtable a few weeks after that reviewing the season.
It's been humbling to have some amazing guests trust us to take part in our inaugural season and we're committed to delivering an insightful and enjoyable episode with each and every one of our guests.
Tackling topics from AI, to diversity and inclusivity, to eco-economics, it quenches our restless thirst for knowledge.
Oh, and we're already hard at work planning our next season (and subsequent seasons after that).
If you want to take a listen, head over to majordigital.com/podcast where all of the episodes are listed - as well as dedicated pages for each season and episode.
If you have any feedback we'd always love to hear it - likewise if there are any particular topics you'd like to see covered it may help inform future seasons.
