Helped me get started

Before starting my podcast, The Single Acorn, I listened to a ton of episodes. This podcast helped me troubleshoot and solve problems before they even arose. I felt confident out of the gate that I was creating a quality product

Learn all about podcasting

A few things about Colin: He's knowledgable about podcasting, he's intelligent, and he communicates well.

All of the above makes him a great teacher. You will do yourself a great service listening to The Podcast Host.

BTW: Their branding is amazing!

I Can Relate

Thank you for covering content and interaction. I find it challenging sometimes myself, and my clients also struggle with content. Too do a series on this is needed. This will defintely keep me interested. Thanks again.
