Welcome to the 12th podcast episode of this side series, the Podcast Spotlight. In this episode, we talk with Shida Osman, digital marketer, content creator, and host of the Singapore based podcast Ae’ Dossier.
Talking with Shida was a bunch of fun. And she is every bit as colorful and lively as her main show Ae’ Dossier, an educational monologue on niche topics like philosophy, language, or calendars. We discussed some of the reasons for starting her podcast, and some of the strategy behind her related content on Twitter and Instagram. Do check them out.
Other People’s Lives
In this episode, Shida introduces us to Other People’s Lives, a show hosted by Youtubers Joe Santagato and Greg Dybec with an incredibly simple premise. In each episode, a guest calls in to share something about their own lives, hence the name the show. Simple right?
Except, that each of these guests are…special in their own right. There was the guest who was a phone sex operator, another one was a professional ghost hunter, and in the episode that Shida and I discussed, the guest has a micropenis. Yup. Enjoy.
Episode: I Have A Micropenis
Music by Pandrezz: Takin’ you for a ride
Special thanks to Shida Osman for taking the time to come on this episode. It was really fun talking to Shida and learning more about her show given that it is a monologue and similar to what I do for the Economical Rice Podcast. The various sound effects and clips that she adds throughout, as well as the quick cuts and self-aware commentary does bring her show to life, and I look forward to what she will come up with next.
