Spudcaster is home to a number of local church podcasts. The platform was instrumental in assisting churches to survive the coronavirus lockdown. The Saint Barnabas United Church Podcast was one of my first podcasts in this series. It includes a profile on the Minister. As well as a sizeable archive of sermon podcasts.

About

I am a storyteller. Radio is where I have plied my trade. I love the beauty of the medium. The way it can move you, the way it carries your imagination. I have 16 years of experience in a radio news environment. I also have considerable experience in radio current affairs, including features making. Over the years I have profiled lawyers and judges, historic figures and ordinary people – all with a story to tell.

I started this podcasting website to help people tell their own stories. I believe that South Africans are natural storytellers. I also believe that podcasting is the future of radio. Since starting this podcasting platform in 2018, I have signed up four churches. These podcasts ensured that the mission and vision of the individual churches could continue even during the coronavirus lockdown. Churches have long been able to return to traditional worship, subject to certain restrictions. However, all my church clients have elected to restrict worship to the podcasting platform.

I also launched an art podcast, run by social activist Wesley Pepper. He felt that artists didn’t have much of a voice during the lockdown. He set up this podcast to tell their stories. His podcast has seen phenomenal growth, with listenership figures doubling within the first three weeks! Wesley continues to build his audience and is constantly tailoring his content. I find that podcasting is a deeply rewarding experience and all my clients echo my sentiments.

And, we're super excited to be carrying The Other Side of the Sun Podcast by Solarkidd. The podcast launched in August. Solarkidd is a Music Producer/Sound Engineer. He started this podcast as a journey of self discovery. At Spudcaster, we are building a storytelling platform. Our ultimate goal is to generate local content. To allow Africans to tell African stories. It is exciting to be a part of something so big!
