26 Aug 2022 - Purpose-driven comms consultancy Second Mountain has today announced the launch of its very own podcast series, exploring inspired stories from inspiring people.
Good Journeys with Second Mountain is a new podcast series that promises to feature a host of UK-based and international guests from the entertainment, sports, lifestyle and wellbeing industries, as well as purpose-led business owners, third sector professionals and inspiring individuals with personal and moving stories to share.
Each episode of the show, presented by Ben Veal, former journalist, chartered PR professional and founder of Second Mountain Comms, will take a deep dive into the guests’ personal journeys and how they have overcome unexpected circumstances and the challenges thrown at them along the way.
Widely available on Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Podcasts, and all major podcast apps, each episode of Good Journeys with Second Mountain can also be watched in full on Second Mountain Comms’ YouTube channel.
The podcast aims to inspire listeners to embark on their own journeys of self-discovery and to move forward in their lives with focus, intent and purpose.
Episode one of the #GoodJourneysPod - now available online - features special guest Josh Winning, author of the critically-acclaimed fantasy fiction novel The Shadow Glass (published by Titan Books), a nostalgia-laced tribute to 1980s classics such as Labyrinth, Dark Crystal and The Neverending Story. Josh is also the author of The Sentinel Trilogy and Vicious Rumer, a senior film writer for the Radio Times, a regular feature journalist for Total Film magazine and co-hosts the excellent Torn Stubs podcast.
In the show’s debut episode, Josh talks candidly about “writing as therapy” and the challenges of writing fiction. Josh explores how his latest book has positively impacted his relationship with his father, what it felt like to create escapist stories and build connections with like-minded 1980s film fans during the course of a global pandemic - and the importance of making mindful changes to guard against the mental health and wellbeing impact of our omnipresent devices and the constant draw of apps and social media.
Ben Veal, founder of Second Mountain Comms, says:
“Good Journeys with Second Mountain is a brand new podcast that provides inspiring people with a platform to share their stories. In each episode, we’ll be diving deep into my guests’ life stories, the journeys that have made them who they are today and exploring what they’ve learnt along the way.
“Hosting a podcast has long been an ambition of mine; podcasts are such a rich, immersive medium and, in this day and age of endless 24/7 streaming and non-stop scrolling, provide the rare opportunity for fantastically open and honest long-form conversations. With a great selection of guests from around the world already lined up for the show over the coming months, this is just the beginning of a very good journey that lies ahead.”
