Read about how we work together below.
When Natalie approached us she initially wanted to use our studio to record a pilot episode but once she saw how we worked with her on her pilot she decided to move the production over to us as well and in 2022 we took over the marketing of the podcast. Natalie’s brief was to create a magazine style show that highlighted the welcoming and community nature of her brand whilst creating a real connection with her audience. She wanted to create a space for honest chats, expert advice and real insight, around all aspects of women’s wellbeing & mental health.
We could immediately see how natural Natalie was behind the microphone and how she put her guests at ease so we created an environment where she could be herself and have meaningful conversations with her team and guests. Video was a key area that we wanted to utilise for Natalie, she’s a very visual person and using as much video content as possible allowed us to show her listeners as well as tell.
The end result has been a long running podcast series with an incredible selection of guests from Helen Skelton to Jenni Falconer, Liz Earle to Arlene Phillips.
“Producing our podcast The Capsule in Conversation with Distorted has been amazing! The quality, production, communication and variety of services are all brilliant. With their guidance and services we have been able to hit the Top 20 of Apple podcasts in our category numerous times across our 5 seasons and be regularly featured in the national press allowing us to continually grow.“
