Seems like everyone’s starting their own podcast these days. So how do YOU stand out in a sea of podcasts? Hint: It’s NOT about the microphone. There is NO one-size-fits-all tutorial that is sufficient. So let me help. I want to help you develop and communicate YOUR STORY — the passion behind the podcast, the thing that makes your show unique and valuable to your listeners, and the secret ingredients that will help you feel successful and make your show the envy of everyone else.
Hey Andrea... Do I have to do solo podcast episodes?
I'm answering a question which comes to us from a conversation that I was having with Kim Wensel from Pattern of Purpose Podcast. What do you think about solo episodes? Do I really have to do them?
Better goal setting for podcasters with Kelly Covert, In Her Voice
Kelly Covert quit goal-setting based on external expectations for her podcast, In Her Voice, and her life. Now, she’s purposeful about her intent, defining what success feels like to her as opposed to what it looks like to others.
For podcasters tied to measuring show success by standard metrics alone, Kelly’s counsel might sound radical, even downright crazy. In essence, though, she’s reconnecting your final product to your creative process.
Lisa Lackey asks... How do I market my podcast? Office Hours
Question: What to do when your podcast is technically and thematically sound but… your engagement numbers could use some improvement? your show’s promotional voice doesn’t reflect your evolution as a podcaster? your strategy for reciprocal social media sharing, shout-outs, and tags is non-existent?
Answer: You listen in (and take notes) while I perform pod-triage!
Treat your guests like the best (better than Gloria Steinem)
Last week, I was driving down the road and I clicked on a podcast in my queue that I had been looking forward to dedicating an hour to — a high profile show, on a major network, with a production team, and a celebrity host — a show I generally quite like depending on the guest.
This episode I was PARTICULARLY excited to listen to because she had Gloria Steinem on the show. So I was ready for an inspiring, thoughtful, fiery conversation and to my chagrin...
Yes, you can make money traveling and podcasting with Debbie Arcangeles, The Offbeat Life
The odds of duplicating Debbie Arcangeles’ podcasting success appear to be on par with capturing a real, live rainbow unicorn.

Andrea is awesome! This podcast is super helpful in navigating the podcasting world, which can be really overwhelming when especially when you’re first starting out. Really appreciate this as a resource!!
This podcast is a must listen for anyone planning on entering the medium!
I first became acquainted with Andrea when I was a guest on one of her other podcasts, Power Your Story, which she does with high school students as part of the CPS After School Matters program. I already had a thought in my head that I wanted to start a podcast, and working with Andrea and her students only got me more excited about the idea.
Following that, I began listening to this pod, and I will say it’s super helpful in brainstorming ideas, or thinking about various approaches, as well as helped me get past my paralysis by analysis of actually starting my pod. Andrea is very knowledgeable.
Additionally, she has an awesome voice, and is someone that you just really enjoy listening to.
