my name is Armin Alic.
Welcome to my Talking Spirits Podcast, where you are able to listen to Talking Spirits, meaning that I am hosting many different people from all over the world and we are talking life in general and all of its wonders in particular.
The idea of doing a podcast was on my mind for a very long time already:
As a traveling musician, I am in the very lucky situation of being able to meet so many wonderful people, and have great conversations with them. I always thought that it might be a good thing to share those conversations with the world, but never found the time to actually do it. Beginning of March 2020, when the Covid-19 epidemic started, it finally felt like I had the time and space to try and make it happen.
The Talking Spirits Podcast is a labor of love. So I am producing and publishing episodes when I have the time and space to do so, and when I feel like doing so. Two and a half years after it all started, we are just kicking off the third season. Up to now it has been quite a pleasant and also informative journey, which I am planing on continuing indefinitely.
While it is in the nature of things that many of my guests are musicians or people who are working in the music business, actually the only mandatory thing in order to become a Talking Spirit is having stories to tell, and being willing to share them with me and the world. Basically, anyone can become a Talking Spirit.
Due to the story of my life so far, I am a multi-lingual guy, so the podcast will be multi-lingual as well, as there are be episodes in English and German.
