If you're looking for *quick* and succinct tips on how to podcast, grow your audience, and monetize your show this is NOT the show for you. Will you get all that from this show? Absolutely! And a lot more, but not in way you expect. This show is a personality driven show hosted by powerhouses and podcasting industry experts Jessica Kupferman and Elsie Escobar (supported by their producer John.) They will give you insightful, wise, expert advice about all aspects about the podcasting industry, from advertising and sponsorships, to the latest and greatest microphones and workflows, to how the podcasting industry is failing and thriving. You will also get the reality of what it takes to podcast as working from home women and moms running their own businesses and supporting a vibrant community of women podcasters nearing 10k members.

If you don't like chit chat, banter and feeling like you're hanging out with Elsie and Jess at their kitchen table (or eavesdropping on them) while they drop some brilliant wisdom about podcasting (and possibly 800 other subjects), go ahead and save yourself some time and move along now

Big Podcast Energy!

I adore this podcast! I’m female podcaster myself and I love hearing their insights on everything new in the quickly-changing podcasting world. I’ve even told a couple of male podcasters they need to listen purely to stay on top podcast stuff. The hostesses with the mostest — they’re so fun to listen to and very relatable. Def subscribe!

TShaneRogers ,

A lost cause

I’ve tried with this podcast. I appreciate their message and their individual personalities, but the two hosts are like oil and water...they don’t mesh well. Constant sniping and bickering and tangents that go nowhere. Plus, for a podcast that purports to be helping other podcasters, they sure can’t get their own house in order. Frequent audio trouble and technical difficulties. It’s a mess, guys. Seriously, get it together.

Three stars for effort and intention, but for now I’ve unsubscribed. I’ll check bank in a couple months and see if the new year brings a new respect for their audience and a focus on quality content.

This Podcast is Spot ON! ,

So glad I found this podcast!

I just launched my podcast in June of this year. And just discovered this podcast this week. I wish I wish I had found it months ago! I’ve only listened to a few episodes so far, but they are jampacked with useful tips and big ideas. Elsie and Jess really have me thinking about exciting ways to improve my podcast.
