Podcasts have been a huge part of my life for well over a decade– first as a listener, then as a producer, and finally as the host of my own shows. My only regret is that I didn't start sooner. The Podcaster Playbook is my way of helping you get started and keep going.
You might also know me from my YouTube Channel, where I like to share my enthusiasm for anything and everything related to audio/video production.
I was also a high school Digital Media teacher for 11 years where I was able to work with thousands of students and see how empowering these tools can really be–and yes, many of them started their own podcasts as well!
Every podcasting journey is unique, but there are core concepts that hold true for everyone. After following The Podcaster Playbook step by step, you'll have your first episode produced, uploaded, and ready to publish for a global audience.

IF ANY OF THIS SOUNDS LIKE YOU, THEN THIS COURSE WAS MADE FOR YOU!
You've got an idea for a podcast, but you need help putting it together. Every day that passes is one more chance to get your show off the ground. You've got a great idea, now it's time to give it life!
You're willing to put in the timeto create not only one episode, but a sustainable show. This course is designed to be as simple as possible, but you still need to be willing to put in the work to move through each section and watch your show come to life.
You have something that you can't stop talking about. Are your friends and family tired of hearing you go on and on about something? Well guess what? Your podcast audience is out there and they want to hear more about it!
You love creative problem solving. Even with a great idea and a solid roadmap to get there, you'll still need to find innovative solutions to unique challenges as you develop your show.
You love podcasts! It's one thing to make a podcast, but knowing what it's like to be a podcast fan who's experienced firsthand the impact that a great show can have on your life is not only an awesome thing, it'll make you a better and more relatable podcaster.
IF ANY OF THIS SOUNDS LIKE YOU, THEN THIS COURSE IS NOT A GOOD FIT:
Your main focus is getting as many downloads and podcast subscribers as possible. It takes time to build an audience and find your footing, and beyond that, podcasting can be rewarding in ways that have nothing to do with analytics.
Your main interest is monetization. While it's definitely possible to earn money from your show at some point, this course focuses in the creative production process.
You want to create harmful, shocking, or negative content. Nope. Just nope, this is not your course and I'm not your guy.
You're not committed to your goal. Life happens, and that's ok. But this course is for someone who's ready to dive in and make their podcast a priority. There are always excuses, but we're not here to make more excuses.
