Over the last few years, Madison has thoroughly explored the world of podcasting. From being an avid podcast listener, she became the first employee of a podcast network, into the role as a podcast producer, and then jumped into the driver’s seat as the co-founder of a podcast and guest networking platform called Wildcast.
It was part way through her MBA program that Madison realized she didn’t love what she was doing. Between the misery at work and her keen interest in podcasts, she recognized that many skills she was learning could transfer over into supporting podcast hosts and began “cold-emailing” managers and hosts from podcasts she’d become a regular listener to… It wasn’t long before Madison ended up hearing back from Clio, Kaitlyn Bristowe’s manager. This was only the beginning!
Years later, Madison is still very much involved in the world of podcasts, however, she and one of her Dad’s best friends have partnered up with some big goals and visions in mind - including the creation of Wildcast; a networking platform for podcast hosts and guests.
Listen along as Madison shares the pivots that have led her into the Wildcast journey, the ideas behind the branding, how this idea was in fact inspired by misery, and how pitching herself to potential investors actually feels.
