I offer full scale production including and not limited to development-to-launch strategy, week to week producing and editing, studio build outs, Patreon development, website builds, team development, tutorials, and training (remote and local). Podcasting since 2015 my shows have accumulated over 2 million downloads and continue to represent critical points of engagement monetarily, platform, and cultural reach.

As many of the social media spaces become saturated with bite-size audio/image bits, the world of podcasting offers space to develop story and what it means to be engaged in an active and meaningful way in your community both online and offline. If you are business and have not considered a podcast, the time is now. Research is showing us that podcast listeners are the strongest promoters of your brand and have the highest retention toward your products, paid memberships, and social sharing. In addition, advertising opportunities continue to skyrocket as the industry is still growing having only generated $314 million YTD. Every week 10,000 podcasts are added to Apple Podcasts. Not to worry as you wont rely on discovery there, but that means that Podcasting is not a media outlet to ignore.
