Megan Spencer listens before speaking. 

With open ears, broadcaster and mindfulness meditation teacher Megan Spencer is a professional listener. She produced the award-winning podcast series From a Whisper to a Bang! It remembers Australian soldiers and their roles in WWII and is inspired by her grandfather’s handwritten memoirs as a prisoner of war in Germany. Megan shares meaningful messages from the past by listening deeply to real-life stories.

I spoke with Megan about how to be a good listener. She explains how conversations in your podcast require you to take your guest’s hand, but let them lead you. We also go over the basics of a solid framework. Know that feeling when no one is really listening to you? You could be making others feel that same way without even realising it. Take a moment to listen closely to what Megan has to say.
