 OVERVIEW 

Learn-by-doing, with constant access to fresh content and our global community

Content you'll want to consume, a community you'll want to be part of and new modules that will have you thrilling your listeners time and time again. We've built this mastermind from community feedback over the past year. We've packed it with knowledge from producing podcasts over the past seven years and packaged it into a hub for podcast mastery.

 
 

 WHO IT HELPS 

Built from real life experiences, shaped by feedback.

Made for all.

We've been listening this past year. Meticulously taking notes. Struggles, successes, challenges and celebrations.

 

You might be starting your podcast journey wondering how to get online, finding your niche or best recording setups to use. Or you might be well on your way, wondering where to take your podcast next, how to wow your listeners, monetise or just fearful of plateauing. 

Regardless of podcast level this mastermind will something for you. 

  🎙️  RECORDING & EQUIPMENT 

What is the best recording setup for professional sounding audio? What about remote recording? Or podcasting-on-the-go? 

We cover all that here. Simple, budget-friendly and non-techie recommendations, all fully tested with our clients.

  🎵  PODCAST MUSIC 

Struggling to find the right song for your show? 

Use our tool to show you how to test songs on your audience, where to find music and what you should consider for licensing. 

  ✂️  EDITING YOUR PODCAST 

Editing your podcast can really sap both time and energy. A lot of things can be solved before you get to this stage and we'll show you how. 

We've got tips, hacks, downloads and pre-sets to help you on your way. 

  👏  GETTING YOUR PODCAST ONLINE 

Here we cover everything you need to make your podcast available to your listeners. 

  • Hosting platforms

  • Apple Podcasts and Spotify

  • Podcast Logos

We'll also take you through how to make your podcast seamlessly accessible for your listeners. A great lesson in simplicity and ease-of-use. 

  📊  PODCAST STATS 

Looking at the numbers can be a real hassle. Where's the best place to find them? Why are they different across platforms? We cover the best places to find them and how to verify that they're right. 

We also help focus on what numbers are important to you, and what is just white noise. Numbers that sponsors will care about, and how you can track ROI of your podcast are the other areas we cover. 

  👊  TOOLKIT DEMOS 

Through the mastermind we cover the tools we recommend using throughout the podcast process. 

Here's where we show you how to use them, the best setups and hacks/tips we've learnt along the way. Enjoy!
