It there anything Colin doesn't cover?!?

I can't say enough about Podcraft; Colin is my favorite person to listen too! He is extremely informative and very easy to listen too! He offers so much guidance for free, its ridiculous! I'm also enjoying listening to his podcasts over and over. Soon, I will be ready to launch (I know, don't wait to long...) and will have a head start because of Colin! Thanks again!! Keep up the good work and maybe one day I will meet the man behind the great accent! Teresa

Excellent resource

I'm just getting interested in podcasting and have found Colin's informative and well laid out series of podcasts to be invaluable. He covers everything from gear to promotion with each episode giving a great overview of a particular topic (as well as some really helpful specifics as to what he uses or how he does something). It doesn't hurt, either, that he's got a clear and friendly voice and pleasant Scottish accent, which makes listening to the podcast a pleasure. Great job Colin and thanks for all the work you've put into this!
