Buzz Knight: Takin' A Walk
Updated: Jun 15
This is year three of the pandemic. Three years of being stuck in our houses. When was the last time you went for a walk with your friends? One of the best things that came out of the pandemic was reconnecting with the simple act of going for a walk. There's something magical and simple about wandering around with someone you love to talk to, tasting the fresh air, being immersed in nature, and checking out cool hidden spots you've never been to before.
This week's guest, Buzz Knight, is someone who's always appreciated the magic of a good walk. He appreciates it so much, in fact, that he's made a podcast centered around it. It's called Takin' A Walk, and it's themed around Buzz traveling to his guests' cities and simply going for a walk with them- while having some incredibly insightful conversations. You can listen to the most recent episode below:
Buzz is a radio veteran himself, having spent most of his career as a Radio Executive. As such, the guests are often connections he's made through his career, but they also include people like authors, athletes, musicians, and business owners. The show's website says the podcast aims to "embrace the mindfulness associated with walking along with the beauty of storytelling and conversation," and I'd say it's right on target.
In this episode, we reconnect with Buzz about what he decided to start Takin' A Walk, and he shares some anecdotes about the unique challenges presented by recording a podcast while walking around the streets of NYC, Boston, Chicago or wherever he finds himself. We backtrack to Buzz's time in radio, and his company, Buzz Knight Media, which works with other media companies to develop their business strategy.
