Podcast Junkies

Denny is the host of Diz Runs Radio. At the time he started he already had a show. Both shows were going for about a month, and he then decided to stop his first show and stick to his running show,. He’s now recorded over 500 episodes, and routinely takes calls on his run from his FB group. It was a pleasure having him back on a 2nd time to share what he’s learned and talk about his new book: Be Ready on Race Day.

After 10 plus years as a television news reporter, Erica Mandy decided to quit her job and pursue a career in podcasting. After discovering podcasts while commuting to work each day, she realized she wanted to listen to news that wasn’t so much in the style of NPR, but still gave her a good overview and left her feeling energized instead of depleted. With her journalism background and extensive television broadcasting experience, she took the skills she learned in the studio and applied them to podcasting.

Now Erica is the host of her own show, The News Worthy, where in less than 10 minutes you can listen to the news in a fun and easily digestible way.
