One of the best for podcasters

If you’re just getting started or have need podcasting for a little while, this is the podcast you must listen to. It helped me learn some basic and more complex ideas pretty quickly. Highly recommend. He breaks it down into bite sized chunks. Very helpful!
Thank you! For doing this!

Make a better podcast with Podcast Better

I love being a podcaster, but at 6 months in the game, I have moved from having a million newbie questions to actual challenges and a few mishaps. Matt’s podcast is to the point, practical and you can really tell how well he understands the medium. Thanks, Matt. It’s a killer show!
