Course description

Podcasting in six weeks is a personalized group coaching class that meets once a week for six weeks to walk you through the steps to launching a successful podcast.

Podcasting is Super Hot

So more and more people are throwing their hat into the ring and proclaiming they are an expert. Every day as a tech support person for one of the largest podcast media hosting companies I see the mess as they try to restart their podcast in the right direction. They followed bad advice like lambs to the slaughter
