What if you were Little Richard?

You can trace pop music back through the decades, from Beyoncé to Michael Jackson to James Brown to Little Richard – all through influence. And as we know, if it weren’t for Chuck Berry’s cousin, Marty McFly would never have been born.

While I’m on a break from regular posting, I wanted to share with you the opportunity to help someone change the world. If you’ve ever recommended a book to a friend that became their favourite, imagine that feeling multiplied by a million.

Unmute is a group program I’m running in May, designed to bring people together who want to use their voice to make a difference… either in their local communities, or to the world at large.

You’re already on your podcasting journey so I’m not here to sell this to you. But you know someone with a fire inside them that just needs a little help to get started.

So what can you do about it?

  1. Forward this email or point your friend to podcode.co/unmute and say “you should do this”.
  2. Enjoy being the one who helped someone else make a world-changing podcast.

Feels good just to think about it, right?

Here’s a video I made with a bit more info:

This week in Podcode

I know you’re busy but don’t wait around too long, as I only have limited space on the program and I want to make sure we bring together a group that gels well.

So what does this have to do with Little Richard?

I love tracing back the lineage of events and people, to see how one event or meeting led to another. Richard influenced Brown who influenced Jackson who influenced Beyoncé – we can trace that back through half a century of music… and even further.

I know how powerful it can feel to be the catalyst for someone else’s change, and I always appreciate those giants who let me stand on their shoulders.

Unmute is a chance for you to pass the mic to the next person, so they can do something amazing.

Thanks so much for your time. I’ll be back to some more regular content very soon, to help you make a bigger impact with your voice, and to love doing it.

Take care,
