Super Helpful

Social media is not my cup of tea. The thought of creating a podcast makes me nervous. How to Start a Podcast made me realize that I can do it. Everything I need to do was spelled out clearly. My podcast will be launching in three weeks and I feel confidant I can do it.

Real eye opening insight

If you are looking for a series that answers most of not all of your questions about podcasting, look no further than the Buzzsprout team! Their insight and wisdom has helped make it less terrifying for me thinking and planning my start into podcasting. Looking forward to listening to all their podcasts to help me get better as time goes on!

Thanks guys for all you’re doing for the community!
