Amazing Companion Podcast to Better Podcasting!

It’s like being in the studio with the hosts as they give timely and honest information about podcasting products and tips without breaking the bank. And if you join the live chat, they will answer your questions without judgment or making you feel bad. Stephen and SP’s banter is light-hearted enough to bring a smile to my face without straying from the topic. Honestly, I’d give this podcast more stars if I could. Listen, laugh along and learn, aspiring hobby podcasters!!
