Recorded two months ago
When I recorded my podcast on Shane Leketa I still was and am getting to know him. My view on a person as I get to know them is one-sided, of course. My side. I see, take in what I see, and make a decision as I get to know this person and change my view as I learn more about the person, as we all do. My initial view on Shane was and is that he a personable person and yet I felt quite intimidated by him and the whole TikTok world when I first started on that particular social media.
I am a person that likes to watch and learn before I initially dive into doing something. Then I will continue to watch and learn while participating. You learn so much more while doing as well as watching and listening, don’t you agree? So, initially, I watched people, how they interacted on videos, in what capacity; learning what I liked and didn’t like about each. Then I found the “Live” feeds (On TikTok, once you reach one thousand followers you can go live and be seen by people on TikTok), what they were about, how you were able to do them and why. Also, I understood that it was a benefit to do them because not only could those that follow you see you personally and interact, but new people could as well, which would bring you new followers.
As you see, I have gone a bit off topic, so let’s circle back to my point. Shane.
Shane originally hit me as personable. He would greet each person he saw come into his “Live” with an “I appreciate you coming into my Live” and continuing to talk to the ones there in his “Live” that would be carrying on a conversation with him. As he would be drawing during these “Lives”, every now and then he would show everyone where he was at in his drawing.
I had gone into his “Live” knowing he was a podcaster so I was very interested to find out more about it. I would throw out a question every now and then and he would answer as he could. But sometimes it would stir someone in the chat to speak up about the chat they had just had on either their particular podcast or his podcast, regarding an interview between them. It was always another guy.
Seeing that it was always another guy Shane seemed to be talking to regarding podcasts and interviews led me to believe that he leaned more toward ones that were for men. Once I had a chance to listen to his podcast and look at his website, it seemed to me that he focuses more on men and men’s health. Now, he may correct me on this at a later date, but I believe this is his focus. Which is great! I believe this is and has been needed more for men. We women have this and actually need more of it as well, but I have always thought men needed more men to pull in men listeners. Does that make sense?
Now saying that he focuses more of his content on men does not mean he does not support women. For a fact, he supports many women in their endeavors, including me. When I messaged him to ask him questions regarding podcasting, he answered me quickly with information that might be helpful, as well as giving me some feedback once he heard my podcast when I finally released it. He is all about helping people as much as he can and with him having a full-time job, family, podcast and now avatar art as well, I don’t see how he does it! But he does, because that is how much people mean to him.
So, please go take a listen to his podcast and give him a rating and review so others can find him. Check him out on his other platforms as well.
Thank you all my friends and have a wonderful day and week!!
