Hey there folks!
My name is Olenskaia Nicole and I am proud to announce that from this day on ORLA Collective has a voice, and I happen to be it (like, literally 🙂 )
A couple of months ago I found out about the magical world of podcasts and podcasting, and being a Radio geek myself, I immediately wanted to also do it.
For those who does not know what podcasting is – well it basically is a form of audio broadcasting on the Internet. You can listen/download podcasts concerning different topics, with and about different people, discussing different themes and ideas. Literally from the way the universe works to the way someone likes brushing their teeth.
I find it more convenient than a Radio show because you can listen to it whenever you want,pause it,re-start or rewind as much as you like.
I am currently serving my Volunteering service on Graffiti, the Youth Shows On Radio ARA, so I was having all the technical stuff right in front of me, and I thought, what holds me back?
Without hesitation, I reached to Linda and David from Orla Collective with my idea of doing podcasts on the platform on their website,as I have been fascinated by the work of Orla for a very long time, I just find this platform an amazing space to share stories, practical and inspiring ideas and communicating with like-minded people, so why not also hearing all those inspiring tricks?
Luckily for me, they were up for it, but not only did they let me use their website as a sharing platform, we also became a team, and they offered their talents with designing our amazing logo and David created our amazing intro melody. Without even realising it we became a team that is happy to provide you with Luxembourg based podcast( I reckon we are the first ones, hashtag #fame ) although we do not want to limit ourselves with just Luxembourg-based stories.
We thought a lot about the concept of the podcasts and way to do it and here what we came up with.
Podcasts will be uploaded twice a month, interviewing (or better call it chatting ) to different people and telling you their inspiring stories about how they changed their life. It may be whatever you can imagine,a trip, a life lesson, a new way of living, anything that people call “non-ordinary” is fascinating for us. And how through that they came to “mindful living” however they imply it.
The purpose of the podcast is to show and motivate you to do this thing that you always wanted to, without being afraid. To show you that it is okay not to fit in, to start something new, to follow your own path or to not even knowing where is your path. There are people like you,who already live their own, different, mindful life and you can do it as well! YOLO guys!
And basically that is all I had to say for today!
I am very excited for this project, for what it brings to us and to you and I hope you thoroughly enjoy it!
So for the first ever episode of The ORLA Collective podcast we decided to simply make an introduction.
I (Nicole aka the host) am joined by Linda and David (aka the founders of ORLA Collective) and we chat about some of the things we believe in, the things we want to achieve through the podcast, the idea behind it and just the way we learn how to live our lives!
If you want to get to know know us,the podcast and become our mindful friend, simply listen to the first episode and let’s step on this road together!
p.s. If you liked it and you have an amazing story to tell or you know an amazing person we should reach to, simply contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we keep in touch!
