Then he moved to Stitcher and is now the West Coast Lead Podcast Strategist for iHeartRadio. I really wanted to dive deep into the growth and evolution of podcast advertising with Ray because he has been pivoting in the industry for so many years, staying in tune with dynamic and programmatic developments. We talk about the major changes he has seen over the years, as well as what development is coming. We collectively gush over our love of host-read ads and why the future of podcast advertising is dynamic. Ray also shares some honest advice to brands and podcasters about succeeding in ad sales and why authenticity matters.Connect with Ray on Linkedin or listen to his podcast 100 Words Or Less: The Podcast.Contact Heather on LinkedIn if you want to advertise with True Native Media's podcasts.

Ray Harkins from 100 Words Or Less

Adult Education

If you're anything like me you listen to podcasts and end up having follow up questions or comments for the guests and hosts. I'll be sitting in my car thinking, "Wait....I want to know more about that!" This episode is giving me an opportunity to ask those questions.Today I'm catching up with Ray Harkins. He's the singer for the hardcore band Taken but also the host of one of my favorite podcasts, 100 Words Or Less. It was a pleasure to catch up with Ray and to chat about the hardcore and heavy music scene for a bit. I'll be honest, my involvement in the scene has dwindled a lot over the last few years but I still have so much love for it. It felt good to go down a rabbit hole with Ray.

Episode 84: Ray Harkins of 100 Words Or Less Podcast

Part-Time Rockstar Podcast

Today's guest is Ray Harkins of the 100 words or less podcast. I’ve been a fan of his show for a little while now and figured I’d see if I could get him on here for a little collaborative type of episode. His show focuses on mostly metal and hardcore musicians around the world. So if you are looking for a new podcast to add to your music rotation definitely check it out. By the sound of it Ray’s been running his podcast for the about last 9 years and is about 400 episodes deep now. He also has a band called “Taken” which has a new EP out called “Without Regard To.” The album delves into his wife’s battle with cancer, which thankfully she is now in remission from. I featured his song “Regret" on this episode.

Ep. 155 Ray Harkins

People I Think Are Cool

WATCH ON YOUTUBE    Ray Harkins is the host of the podcast 100 Words or Less. He is also the lead singer for the melodic hardcore band Taken. I discovered Ray's podcast while looking for a show that covered creative collaboration. Ray's interviews with indie musicians and artists was just what I needed. His interviews are more like casual conversations that dive into the stories behind each guest's profession. With every episode, I find something to take away and apply to my own creative career, which is rare when you work in a creative partnership with you spouse!   You can follow Ray on Twitter and Instagram @xpurposex. His podcast 100 Words or Less from iHeartRadio is available to stream everywhere (see the link below for details).   Podcast Instagram @xpurposex Twitter @xpurposexTaken @takenband
