“In 2006, only 22% of US adults were familiar with podcasting. Today, 197 million Americans (70%) are aware that podcasts exist.” ~Edison Research
It’s no secret that podcasting is REALLY popular.
In fact, there are now over one million podcasts!
Recording and publishing audio is easy.
Creating a high-quality podcast with a growing base of raving fans is another story.
That’s why I asked two podcasting pro’s, Mathew Passy and Benjamin Brandt, to help me with today’s episode.
- Equipment you need to host a studio-quality podcast
- Resources for how to DIY the editing & production process
- Common mistakes and pitfalls to avoid
- Tips for growing and marketing your podcast

We also talk about best practices for recording remotely, an extremely timely topic given the state of our world.
