I’m so friggin’ happy to announce that yes, yes, yes I finally have a podcast. Let me tell you all about it! Okay, it’s called The Big Opening with Christian Foremost. The Big Opening is an open-journal podcast about being vulnerable with our feelings and the discovery of our true selves.
Cool, right? In every episode of the Big Opening, you can join me as I try to unlock several aspects of one’s self and find answers to life’s many questions. We are going to deep dive into the life of one Mr. Christian Foremost, as he opens up about his experiences as a frantic overthinker, a frustrated creative, a lost soul, and an ordinary human being with flaws to spare.
Life is a learning journey. Becoming better starts with acknowledging the hard truths about yourself and your situation, and then, wanting to change or improve yourself. It’s different for everybody. I just hope that sharing bits of pieces of my stories through this podcast could provide some comfort for others out there.
The Big Opening is also not only going to be about me. This podcast is a two-way street. We will also be opening our minds to the ideas and perspectives of some of the most inspirational people. Every other episode, I will also be interviewing guests from different walks of life. From lifestyle and personal development bloggers to podcasters talking about several topics of interest, influencers, colleagues, and friends, we’ll get to know each of them on a very personal level.
I’m totally excited for you guys to join me in meeting all of them. More than the meaningful conversations about life, I’m also kinda excited about just casually having fun talking, especially considering the surprise segments in the middle of the podcast episodes. That’s pretty much all I can tell you because even I don’t know what to expect. You just have to listen in and find out!
Why did I want to start a podcast?
I’ve been carrying the idea of starting a podcast ever since I created my blog almost 3 years ago. Whenever I write my blogs, I always imagine myself delivering a speech of some sort. I’m on stage in front of a crowd of hundreds of people, all eyes on me and I’ve got an inspirational message worth their attention. Maybe it’s because of the childhood trauma of getting so close to making speeches on graduation, and never getting actually becoming Valedictorian that made me crave that validation somewhere else. Anyways, my blogs were made to be spoken and this podcast is going to bring some of them to life.
It’s also exciting to finally get an excuse to talk to some of the people I idolize in the blogging and podcasting community. I am certain that we will be having so many worthwhile discussions in this podcast. I’m ready for my mind to be blown away by the wisdom all of my guests carry inside their beautiful brains. I’m just so thirsty to take everything in because I realized that at this point in my life and after all of the introspection that I do, I don’t have all of the answers. Really hoping that my guests will help shed some light on some of the areas of life that I personally find blurry or confusing. You can totally count on me to ask all of the hard questions!
I also think that this podcast would help me a great deal with my social anxiety and verbal communication skills. Finally, I’ll have other people to talk to aside from myself, right? But swear, having actual conversations with human beings is new to me, but I’m never the type of guy to back away from challenges. I hope that by posting more episodes, I’ll get to hone my radio voice, enrich my vocabulary, and improve my response to social cues. Thank you guys for allowing me to improve myself once again with this podcast!
The Big Opening podcast means a great deal to me already and I hope that it would to you as well. I admit that I am probably not the best person here to have a podcast and I may have some beginner mistakes, but the more we continue on the journey, the more we learn and get better. That’s exactly what the Big Opening with Christian Foremost is all about.
Check out the pilot episodes!
To launch The Big Opening, we have don’t just one but 2 pilot episodes for you guys to binge!
Our first official guest for the podcast is my blogger friend, Alita Pacio who you might know from her own website: Share to Inspire Blog. She writes about inspirational self-help articles aimed at empowering women and she has also written a bunch of guest articles in the blog as well.
During the episode, we get to l know a bit more about Alita as I literally fumble my way through questions aimed at learning more about how Ali sees life through her career as a blogger. She talks about migrating to Japan as an English teacher and starting her journey in self-discovery until she found her way towards blogging. It was no surprise that Ali and I had a lot of things in common, not just with the blog, but also on our perceptions about life, purpose, and success. So if you guys want a boost in your motivation and a little help on self-improvement, this episode is totally for you!
