Psych Central Live on Your Stage
Conferences can be long and repetitive, year after year of similar kinds of talks, given by many of the same people. What gets lost in many conferences is the voice of the attendee, the voice of a different kind of expert.
Are you looking for something different to educate and engage your attendees at your next conference, fundraiser, meeting, or other event?
If so, we’ve got something awesome to announce — Psych Central LIVE! A unique live taping of a podcast show, tailored to your needs and audience.
You can give your audience a break from the usual presentations and speeches by hosting a live recording of The Psych Central Podcast or Not Crazy at your event! A live recording from your event not only offers a departure from the routine, but it’s also a fun, easy way to break up the day. Your audience will be talking about this for weeks afterward.
Psych Central Live is easy to arrange at your next event or conference. Our planners will work with you to determine the style, show topics, format, and technical needs. We’ll take care of all the details, including the technical setup needed to ensure the podcast goes on without a hitch.
About the Psych Central Podcasts
The first episode of The Psych Central Podcast aired on November 3, 2016, with Psych Central founder Dr. John Grohol. At the time, we were brand new to podcasting and weren’t sure what to expect. But after a good deal of trial and error, we determined that what people wanted was psychology explained simply. Our listeners told us they wanted engaging guest experts who could illuminate and explain something about relationships, mental health, mental illness, or psychology that added something to their life.
Host Gabe Howard helped craft that focus. “I thought of my father, honestly,” he says. “When I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, he needed information that was both accurate and easy to understand. He’s not a reader, but he loves watching and listening to educational programs. He’s the audience I picture in my head when I interview our guests.”
The success of The Psych Central Podcast made it feasible to launch another podcast, Not Crazy, co-hosted by Jackie Zimmerman and Gabe. “We felt the first podcast did a great job capturing the medical aspects of mental illness but not so great at capturing what it’s like to live with mental illness. So Not Crazy was born.”
I believe that both podcasts serve a unique listener base and complement our ongoing 25-year mission of sharing relevant, objective mental health content from multiple perspectives.
What to Expect From a Live Podcast Event
Before the official recording begins, your audience will be engaged by our hosts to set the tone for the event. After the warm-up, the show’s theme music will play and the official recording will begin. The show will include open discussions about mental health and mental illness with your choice of formats, including:
- One-on-one interviews
- Host-led panel discussions
- Sharing of patient experiences and stories
- Audience Q&A and participation
. . . and more!
Your attendees will experience something fresh, and your event will be introduced to an audience of 50,000+ listeners. When the podcast goes live, you can share the recording with those who attended and those who may have missed the event.
