Loved this show

I love this show. All I needed in terms of resources to launch my podcast, Beyond the gram! Thank you so much for your clarity and for making it fun!

Such Excellent Info!!

When I started to think about starting my own podcast, my mind was swirling around how to do it. Then I found this podcast. I listened to the all the episodes to get an overview, and have gone back to the specific ones as I’ve needed the info. They are a tremendous resource for me, and have introduced me to the whole Buzzsprout community - YouTube how-to videos, help and support, hosting your podcast….they make it all so easy. Thank you for helping me start the process. I’ve been able to select my music, have the artwork created, order my domain name, and has given me the confidence to get this going! Thank you!
