    Episode #09 | ft. Travis Brown, Inventor of Pod Decks

    This week’s guest is Travis Brown -- Podcaster, Teacher, and Inventor of one of our favorite products to bring to the Ossa Lounge, Pod Decks!

    What started as a free gift for signups on his ecourse quickly transformed into a full-fledged business when Travis quickly realized he had designed a product that podcasters would go crazy for (including us!)

    Pod Decks are decks of cards that can be used as a tool for any podcaster to spark an interesting discussion about something unexpected. You’ve probably heard our Ossa Lounge hosts using Pod Decks at the beginning of our episodes as a fun way to get the conversation flowing!

    Pod Decks can also be used to grow your social media presence. Going live on Instagram or Facebook with prompts from Pod Decks can be a great way for your audience to get to know you and connect with your brand on a deeper level.

    Travis also runs PodcastBuddy, a podcast production service that enables podcasters to outsource the tedious production tasks that can be overwhelming for podcasters to handle alone.
