Defying all odds, this gutsy girl is on the way to build a successful podcast start-up

A girl in Kolkata is determined to achieve her dream of creating a successful podcast start-up? Want to know her inspiring tale of resolve and determination to succeed at any cost? Continue reading.

Obstacles never concerns Anku

Odds are stacked heavily against Anku Goyal who belongs from Kolkata. But the odds have never worried her. In fact, she has always fished in troubled waters.

Thriving to build a dedicated podcast

With an aim to create a dedicated podcast that could be informative and knowledgeable, Anku started India Podcasts in February this year.

She feels that the existing podcasts do not focus on the core area of the experts that are being interviewed, “The idea is to have a dedicated podcast media as audio narration is more appealing to people as most of the people do not have the time to watch television or read newspapers,” said Anku to Chalgenius.

“Unlike others, we are not a chatty podcast but our focus is to get the voices that inspire us to talk directly. It is a podcast where we want to bring information from people who have domain knowledge. If I am interviewing a big entrepreneur or any expert, the aim is to take out knowledge from the area in which he holds expertise rather than asking vague questions,” said Anku to Chalgenius.

Top Personalities interviewed

Her passion could be understood from the fact that within a short span of time since lauching her podcast, she has interviewed famous personalities like cricket legend Kapil Dev, Ex RBI Governor, C Rangarajan, former rail minister Suresh Prabhu among several others. At present, she has hosted six podcast platforms and has made 34 episodes.

India Podcasts is informative and useful

“We ask people to speak only on their expertise and no other topics are discussed. It helps the listeners to get the information what they want. We are creating a space that has a knowledge oriented information rather than news oriented,” she said.

Wants to cover various sectors

She further told Chalgenius that India Podcasts wants to cover various sectors across the spectrum rather than focusing on finance as all sectors are related to each other, “We are not here to create sensational news but news that is knowledgeable, informative and useful for all. We would soon expand it to visuals display in Youtube but with a different element and videos will be done in a documentary style which would be interesting.”

Tough struggle for her

Anku wears many hats. She is not only the founder of India podcasts, but has also worked with the English daily The Statesman, NDTV and Bloomberg TV India among other prestigious media publications.

But the journey for her has not been smooth. It was a tough battle for her to make a place in the media. She faced severe hardship but never gave up. Her determination to win at any cost has brought success to her.

Chalgenius salutes and supports women empowerment.
