For aspiring podcasters and seasoned podcasters, podcast strategist Tracy Hazzard explores whether your podcast has what it takes to create and grow a binge-worthy podcast – where listeners binge on your every word and get to know, like, and trust you in an accelerated way. The Binge Factor is that strategic key to making your show irresistible, influential, authority-building, and successful. Tracy’s unique gift to the podcasting and branding world is being able to identify that unique binge-able factor - the thing that makes people come back again and again, listen actively, share as raving fans, and buy everything you have to sell.

Magazine columnist, Tracy Hazzard, as she talks to Top Brandcasters using audio and video to spread their message to the world. With over 2600 interviews under her belt across all her articles, blogs, videos, and podcasts, Tracy asks the probing questions to bring you diverse views from successful industry veterans like Pat Flynn, Joe Rogan, and John Lee Dumas, and exposes the podcast launch and growth myths that no longer work. She covers the five things that make a show more bingeable and more profitable - the best ways to get great podcast guests, increase podcast listeners, encourage audience engagement, produce your podcast professionally, and find alternative ways to monetize your show.
