Wanaka Podcast

We venture into the world of podcasting!


The Film Crew team have recently partnered up with the amazing creatives at Jolt Marketing to create the Wanaka Podcast.

The Wanaka Podcast is about conversations with Wanaka business owners. We talk to talented Wanaka people about business, motivation, and what they find intriguing.

Our guest speakers offer their insights into leadership, strategy, and what they find unique about doing business in Wanaka. The show is focused on exploring innovative ideas and clever thinking; our hosts seek out knowledge, mindset, and business philosophy to inspire and encourage other Wanaka business owners.

The project was developed in lockdown and recording began once business resumed. Our hosts are a hand-picked bunch of local legends. Each host selects their own guests and conducts the interviews in their own style. Guests cover many industries and approaches; they include retail and hospitality, athletes, and artists, as well as health practitioners and organic treat makers. The guest list is varied and interesting.

The show will be released in Seasons; each season being presented by a new host. Hosts so far include local business owners Jess Eastwood from Mindchat, professional athlete Dougal Allan and Jo Lynch from Jolt Marketing. Season One host Jess Eastwood says, “The podcast has been a great way to meet new Wanaka business owners and talk to them about their ideas, challenges, and how their businesses came to be. There are many similarities amongst us; fortitude and determination and also a deep love for our town. I have enjoyed hearing about the parts of doing business that are unique to Wanaka, seasonal challenges, staff, weather and of course COVID. Wanaka business owners are a resilient lot. Each of their stories is incredible and we think people will enjoy hearing them.”

The podcast will be available from 19 August on all main podcast apps and online at wanakapodcast.com
