Welcome to the 7th podcast episode of this side series, the Podcast Spotlight. In this episode, we talk with up and coming local podcaster, Farriqin Anuar, as he introduces the following 2 podcasts:

Podcast 1: Talk is Jericho

Recorded from all over the globe, former multiple time world champion pro wrestler, lead singer of Fozzy and New York Times best-selling author Chris Jericho rocks the podcast world with “Talk Is Jericho,” his unique, weekly take on all things pop culture and life in general.

As with most interview shows, the main draw comes from both the guest and the host. Talk is Jericho definitely has both in spades. As a host, Jericho is charismatic and naturally talkative, and makes the conversation just flow by. And though a bunch of his guests come from the same wrestling background where he built his career, there are plenty of others from musicians to TV producers to filmmakers, to fill out the show. Listen to this if you are a fan of wrestling, or love the conversational style of interview podcasts.

Podcast 2: Inside of you with Michael Rosenbaum

Michael Rosenbaum has spent the better part of the last two decades in and out of film and television – mostly known for playing Lex Luther on the show Smallville. As he relates “I’m the guy that you probably don’t know by name, but when you see my face you might say “oh, that guy from that thing.”” Throughout his career he has connected with many in the industry, but noticed that he doesn’t really know any of them on a personal level. This is the show where we attempts to correct that.

In terms of interview style, it must be said that it bears a great resemblance to WTF with Marc Maron. There’s plenty of back and forth conversation, a ton of soul searching, and the occasional deep dive into Rosenbaum’s and his guest’s deepest fears and insecurities. The stories can be painful to listen to at times, but it is also what makes it authentic and relatable. Who knew that celebrities shared the same fears and anxieties that we do? Listen this if you are a fan of Marc Maron’s style of hyper-personal conversationalism, and if you want to learn more about the guests on his program.

Music by Pandrezz: Takin’ you for a ride

Once again special thanks to Farriqin Anuar for agreeing to come on the show. On a personal note, this was probably the most raw interview I’ve ever done. Just in terms of sharing experiences with podcasting, the struggle and hustle, and the dream that makes it all worth pursuing. As a foray into the lives of the podcasters trying to make it work in Singapore, Farriqin is probably as close and as authentic as you are going to get. For that you should definitely check out his show, Do Not Clique, here
