After a thorough renovation, NOBCO has its own podcast studio! Broadcast Partners delivered the equipment to NOBCO and went to visit Arvid Buit to ask what exactly they do and why you should listen to their podcast!
What exactly do you do at NOBCO and what do you want to contribute?
The NOBCO is the Dutch Association of Professional Coaches. We create the best-listened podcast in our industry (Coach Radio) and develop new formats and an online Academy. We want to contribute to the development of professional coaches and offer support for this in many ways.
That sounds interesting! You guys have built your own podcast studio, what’s the reason for this?
The podcast Coach Radio is a great success, and we always made it in the AvroTros studios in Amsterdam (VondelCS). When this one stopped working, we also started playing with the idea of building a video studio. One and one is two, we decided to build all the facilities in-house in Zwolle.
What can people expect when they start listening to your podcast?
The most important thing is an enjoyable listen with expert guests. We also aim for a lot of interaction with listeners who call in and join. We are currently developing 3 more new formats and soon plan to broadcast new podcasts on a weekly basis. Relevant, current and if all goes well it will also sound top notch from the new studio ;).
That’s a great prospect! Do you have any other future plans?
We hope to make beautiful things especially with our communities of over 4000 members. With great energy, fun and innovation.
Fantastic! How did you guys actually end up at Broadcast Partners?
There is really only one logical partner in this field and that is Broadcast Partners. The contact with Frank was very smooth, once he got used to our stubborn wish list 😉 For a podcast studio, we went quite elaborate, but that’s just to be able to differentiate. The advice we received was valuable and also the contact with foreign manufacturers (in case of questions) Frank takes care of us. I am very satisfied and hope to do business with Broadcast Partners again in the future!
Thanks for your time Arvid! We wish NOBCO lots of success and fun with your new podcast studio!
