Launching May 25, DoYouEven Influence? is a new podcast that pulls back the curtain on the world of influencing, giving listeners behind-the-scenes access to some of Australia’s, and the world’s, most colourful Instagram stars.
From exciting up-and-comers to international heavyweights, the broad spectrum of guests includes sneaker royalty Jemuel Wong (@jemuelwong), vegan queen Liz Miu (@itslizmiu), body diversity advocate Rani West (@raniwest_), and the UK’s very own Tennesha Vanterpool (@nieshvanterpool).
Producer Renee Buckingham has been on a mission to legitimise the influencer career and improve industry standards. Managing a small business and producing top breakfast radio shows around the country, Renee is a go-getter with wealth of knowledge on both sides of the coin.
Renee has teamed up with her older brother James Buckingham, who will host the industry revealing podcast. James has a varied career in entertainment and is known for starring in the show Magical Tales and for having ARIA-charting singles to his name.
In 40-minute episodes, influential names share their top tips and tricks to growing an authentic following, as well as insights into their daily routines and the not-so-glamourous elements of the job.
The podcast is not just about social media stars, as Renee speaks with PR professionals, top gamers and entrepreneurs to understand influence in all its forms.
No topic is off limits, from algorithms favouring white standards of beauty, to brand tattoos sparking collaboration deals. Guests delve into the dark side of business, including being ghosted by brands, and reveal the most cringeworthy moments that don’t make it to Instagram.
DoYouEven Influence? is now available on all major podcasting platforms.
