One Of The Best

This is literally one of the best shows to listen to for Hobby Podcasting. There are other shows out there that also offer great content, but BP specifically target those who podcast for fun over all else. Stephen and SP are the first to tell you they aren't looking to make money. Their words of wisdom have helped be wuite a bit when it comes to gear, recording techniques, and even content. Highly recommended for novices and veterans alike.

Excellent Content. Delivery Needs Help.

The content of this show is awesome. But the audio is a bit annoying. If you choose to listen, and you should, keep your finger on the 15s skip feature of your player. One host (SP) is fine but the other host (Stephen) is long winded, slurs his words, chokes up on the mic, and speaks with a mouthful of saliva. Not sure if this is a speech impediment or he’s thinking about his next meal. Either way, it’s difficult to listen to with headphones on. He also likes to speak with a Radio Voice like he’s announcing Sunday’s drag race. Hitting skip occasionally will help and you won’t miss much content.

Listen before you start a podcast

If you are thinking of starting your first (hobby) podcast, do NOTHING until you listen to these guys. NOTHING. Start with episode one and listen through at least episode twenty-four. Then listen to those episodes AGAIN. After that you can skip ahead. You’ll learn how to avoid making mistakes that far too many starting podcasters make. You will thank these guys later.
