The Only Show That Matters For Podcasters

The hosts are credible, informative, funny, and educational. If you want to be the best in your podcast category, listen to this show and do everything they say. Their best advice is for podcasters to make content that provides value to the listener, not the advertiser, and the rest will fall in place. Thank you for such an outstanding show!

BravoGol ,

Timely and precise

Everything you didn't know you needed to know about podcasting. A couple hours every month to keep your feed up to date with changes. Thank you R & E!
