Podcasts have gone from being a segment of radio broadcasts to independent collectives covering a range of topics, from stories to advice. Among the top podcasts today is Jack McAdoo’s Real Talk Live! an empowerment podcast with listeners worldwide.
The world-renowned podcaster was born in Homestead AFB, Florida. His father, Donnell Wilson McAdoo, was a Chief Master Sergeant in the Air Force and moved around with his family for quite some time, even moving to Germany before returning to the United States in 1971.
Jack grew up in Hawaii, where he began his pursuit in the music industry. He wrote, performed, and recorded before moving on to manage artists and promote concerts in the islands and mainland of the United States. He worked with local artists like Mackey Feary, Kalapana, and more.
Eventually, Jack McAdoo moved to Los Angeles, California. There, he worked in recording studios and on stage with some of the music industry’s biggest names like Michael Jackson, Madonna, and countless more.
By 1985, he began to play poker after learning the game from a professional poker player while Jack was hosting the Vincent Lecavalier Celebrity Poker Tournament in Tampa, Florida. Jack created Poker Pod Radio to help others fill the void and became the first podcast to become an event co-sponsor at the World Series of Poker. He also co-created Poker Pro Magazine, where he worked as the vice president.
The launch of Poker Pod Radio brought in success and led Jack to create Real Talk Live! a show that focused on interviews with experts in mindfulness, spirituality, health, and motivation. It has garnered millions of listeners around the globe and is ranked by Alexa in the top 3,000 websites in the country and the top 20,000 worldwide.
After moving away from Poker, Jack hit rock bottom and got more into self-help. He learned to become humble and show compassion to everyone. Jack found that through his trials, he could lift and encourage everyone who comes into his life.
With Real Talk Live, Jack explores the power of belief, and it’s importance for realizing personal potential. He does this by sharing his life’s experience, from his downfalls to his rise to success. The empowerment podcast focuses on uplifting his listeners with conversations covering topics like motivation, spirituality, lifestyle, business, and health.
Jack created Real Talk Live because he knows that there are people who need motivation and encouragement, and people who are on the right track but lack validation to assure them that they are. He wants to inspire people who are still in the process of trying to figure out who they are and what direction they want to go.
Throughout his illustrious career, Jack McAdoo has spent fifteen years doing podcasts. He discovered that he could empathize and relate well with his listeners. He is confident that he can become the leading motivational speaker in the country as his name recognition is growing.
Jack McAdoo is one of the top rising influencers in the personal development/motivational space. He wants people to know that he can be brought in for coaching, keynote speaking, and motivational events, not just in the United States but also worldwide.
