This time, a quick trip to Singapore to chat with podcast producer Danny Koordi!

Danny is a fulltime podcast producer and founder of Fabl Productions, creating narrative shows for clients and companies who want to convey a message in podcast format. I’ve known Danny since the Asia Podcast Summit last year, and this was a good time to get an update on what he’s up to, building up Fabl Productions and more.

We talked about:

  • The leap of faith from auditing at KPMG to fulltime podcasting
  • The mindsets, struggles and worries behind starting your own independent podcast business
  • Why countries in Asia are not ‘advertiser-ready’ yet, plus growing trends
