I’m Melinda Wittstock, and
I’m the Founder and CEO
Here’s my story …(Well, some of it)
I was one of those kids who always got in trouble for talking in class.
Even back then I believed content involves conversation.
By the time I was 22, I was a correspondent on The Times of London reporting on business, media and this “new thing” called the Internet. Then I moved into TV as an anchor, host and producer for CNBC’s Financial Times Television, ABC News’ World News Now, and the BBC, where I created and grew a newsmagazine to an audience of 20 million.
I learned a lot about how to engage audiences and make great content profitable – and why content creators usually get left behind when it comes to making money.
After that, I set off on my own to become a serial entrepreneur, founding 4 companies in broadcast media, social networking, AI-driven consumer intelligence, gamification, and technology – and building them to 7- and 8-figure success.
Each one was my “lab”, proving out parts of what has now emerged as the first-ever dynamic interactive podcasting network with “gamified” engagement.
Now I’m thrilled to present Podopolo™.
Podopolo™ is all about empowering content creators to profit from their podcasts, and engaging their audiences to make a positive difference in the world – all while having fun, connecting with friends, and winning prizes.
Great content IS conversation – and magic manifests when people join together around their favorite podcasts. Ideas turn into action and learning transforms lives.
