At the center of everything, at the core of your business, what is the most single most important thing you and your team deliver?
The customer experience.
Everybody knows that a customer is more likely to share their experiences with others when they have either an extremely positive experience or an extremely negative one. So, every moment and every touchpoint counts.
This is where The Customer Experience Podcast comes in. Because creating and delivering customer experience is the responsibility of every single member of the team, how is it best aligned, structured, and measured? Who truly owns it? And what are today’s best practices?
This is at the heart of this new podcast.

The Path to a Podcast
You can personalize almost anything. You can automate aspects of your customer experience and set rules and triggers for your marketing and outreach, but no amount of automation and personalization can replicate a human touch.
There’s a line between personalized and truly personal that we have to be aware of.
The Customer Experience Podcast is focused on answering the question, “How are people creating winning customer experiences?”
When do you personalize and when do you get truly personal? How are people and teams organizing, communicating, structuring, and measuring it? And how is it being delivered and optimized? These are just some of the questions we’ll seek to answer.
The goal of BombBomb, the company supporting the podcast, is to rehumanize communication by replacing some plain, typed-out messages with simple, personal videos. To take business communication its effect on the customer experience and make it human again. To turn faceless blocks of text into real humans the customer can know, like, and trust.
The benefits of this personal and human approach are conferred upon your customers, future customers, and employees. We all thrive when we’re in real relationships with other people.
But Why a Podcast?
What are the thoughts and feelings that we’re giving our customers? What are the moments that we’re creating for them them that produce positive results like reviews, referrals, and repeat business? How do we share that responsibility throughout the customer journey?
Let’s talk about that! And more.
The desire is to talk to a variety of people in a variety of roles – from marketing to sales to customer support and beyond. Like customer experience itself, this podcast will host a wide range of people who serve all along the customer journey.
Most episodes will run 20-25 minutes – deep enough to get to know the guest, then walk out a valuable framework or hear a couple valuable stories. It’s a format many of us enjoy during a morning run, a commute, a lunchtime walk, or a workout.
