Issa Perez, commonly known on the internet as Issaplease, is originally a blogger/ vlogger & business owner with an insatiable need to talk. With her blog and vlogs being more focused on fashion, lifestyle, food and events – she wanted to create a platform for her to be able to discuss deeper issues and also help promote Filipino’s… (continue) globally and thus, IssaTalks was born.
Issa is one of the first podcasters in the Philippines who is recognized for her live recordings which are aired on Facebook every Sunday at 10:00 pm UTC +08:00. On her show she likes to talk about anything from the business of blogging/ vlogging, dealing with the quarter life crisis, to human interest pieces and oftentimes, although hardly, politics. Although fairly new, with less than 30 episodes in, the IssaTalks’ podcast is definitely slowly growing and reaching a wider audience one episode at a time.
Session 1AM-2AM PDT – How I Started My Own Podcast Through Facebook Live
With very little knowledge of how to start her own podcast, Issa Perez (aka issaplease), had a phone, 3rd world internet connection, lots of passion, and Facebook’s newest LIVE feature. With these tools, she decided to try her luck and eventually was able to successfully create her very own podcast from the ground up.
In this session, Issa will talk about how she was able to make her way into the podcast scene from Facebook to different podcast platforms, the struggles of recording live (in a third world country!!), introducing podcasts to an unfamiliar audience and how she was slowly able to build her own private studio.
