Berenice is the host of the Full Stop podcast, which explores the topic of childlessness and aims to break the silence and taboo surrounding it. In this interview, Berenice shares her thoughts on creativity, the importance of community, and her experience as a podcast winner.
Q: Congratulations on winning Podcast of the Year at the Digital Women Awards 2022! How does it feel to be recognized for your work on the Full Stop podcast?
A: Thank you so much! It feels amazing to be recognized for the work we do on the Full Stop podcast. It’s a topic that doesn’t get talked about a lot, and it can be quite isolating for people who are childless, so to be able to create a community and conversation around it is really special.
Q: Can you tell us a little bit about the Full Stop podcast and what inspired you to start it?
A: The Full Stop podcast is all about childlessness, and it’s a topic that I’ve always been passionate about. For me, it was always something that I felt was not talked about enough and there was a lack of representation of people who were childless by choice or circumstance. I started the podcast as a way to break the silence and taboo around childlessness and to create a community for people who may feel alone in their experiences.
Q: What do you think is the most important aspect of creating a successful podcast?
A: I think the most important aspect of creating a successful podcast is to be authentic and true to yourself. It’s also important to have a clear message and to be consistent in the content you’re putting out. And, of course, building a community around your podcast is key. The listeners and supporters are what make it successful.
Q: How do you think the Full Stop podcast has helped to break the silence and taboo surrounding childlessness?
A: I think the Full Stop podcast has helped to break the silence and taboo surrounding childlessness by providing a platform for people to talk openly and honestly about their experiences. We discuss a wide range of topics, from mental health to relationships, and it’s created a space where people can feel heard and understood. Additionally, by having guests on the podcast who have different perspectives and experiences, it helps to create a more diverse and inclusive conversation around childlessness.
Q: What advice would you give to someone who wants to start their own podcast?
A: My advice would be to just start. It’s easy to get caught up in thinking that you need all the fancy equipment and perfect sound quality, but the most important thing is to just begin. Also, make sure you have a clear message and purpose for your podcast and always be true to yourself. And don’t be afraid to reach out to others for help and support. The podcasting community is incredibly supportive and there are always people willing to help you out.
Q: Lastly, what are you most looking forward to in the future of the Full Stop podcast and your work in this field?
A: I’m looking forward to continuing to grow the Full Stop podcast community and to have even more diverse and inclusive conversations around childlessness. I also hope to expand our reach and make the podcast even more accessible to people all over the world. Additionally, I am excited to continue to break the silence and taboo surrounding childlessness and to empower and support those who are childless.
In conclusion, Berenice’s work on the Full Stop podcast is a shining example of the power of authentic storytelling and community building. Her dedication to creating a space for open and honest conversations about childlessness has not only helped to break the silence and taboo surrounding this topic but has also empowered and supported those who are childless. We at Digital Women are proud to have recognized her work at the Digital Women Awards 2022 and we encourage all women to consider entering the Digital Women Awards 2023.
