G’day! I’m Ginni Saraswati, CEO and Founder of Ginni Media, and host of The Ginni Show. My career has been all about using my voice, but I understand how difficult it is to find it.
Finding my voice didn’t come naturally. When I was two years old, my family immigrated to Australia from Sri Lanka. Being plopped into a new culture, I retreated into a protective shell and became a painfully shy kid, rarely using my vocal cords for years. It was only with encouragement from a caring teacher and best friend that I gained enough courage to speak up.
Before podcasting, I spent a decade working my voice in broadcast radio. The first time I sat behind the mic? Pure terror! I wanted nothing more than to retreat into my shell. Again, it was through the encouragement of others (my instructors and radio community) that I learned to use my voice.
Confidence is something that we nurture. I’ve found that we repeatedly rediscover our voices as we grow and change in life.
Now I’m the owner of Ginni Media, a leading podcast production house, where I am honored to work with incredible clients including Allure, Architectural Digest, WIRED, and Siemens, and produce podcasts like Stay Grounded, Vanessa Wants to Know, Messy and Magnificent, and Fire and Soul. I’m also the co-founder of Metro Podcast Studio in NYC and The Podcast Accelerator.
To this day, The Ginni Show helps me rediscover my voice. After being nominated at the Australian Podcast Awards for Best Comedy Podcast and Presenter of the Year at the Australian LBGTI Awards, I’ve witnessed the power of podcasting and uplifting your voice. Here, I’m stepping into the teacher’s role to help you find yours, too.
