ONCE UPON A TIME…
…your only hope of hosting a show was to impress an all powerful radio boss. This was difficult for two reasons – first, they were often wearing jeans two sizes too small, cutting off the circulation to their brain and affecting their ability to make decisions. And second, they’d never take a chance on someone with no experience, no matter how passionate they were.
…you can be sitting in your pyjamas, broadcasting to an audience the size of a small country.
SO WHAT’S HOLDING YOU BACK?
Let me guess….you’ve got a big idea you desperately want to get into people’s earholes but have no idea how to turn that dream into reality? Or maybe you can feel it in your waters that you’re meant to be a podcaster but just can’t come up with that killer idea?
Starting from scratch can be tough!
How do you work out what equipment you need if the only thing you’ve pressed record on is the VCR? How do you know how to put a show together if you don’t even know what those words mean? How do you turn yourself into a ‘presenter’ without coming off like a giant cheese ball sprinkled in sparkly jazz hands?
I’ll tell you how…
We do this sh*t together!
My name is Rachel Corbett and I’ve spent over 15 years in media, presenting radio shows and podcasts for the biggest stations in the country. I’ve also put those skills to work in my own podcast, Paul and Rach, which hit the Top 5 in iTunes in its first week, set up camp in the New & Noteworthy section, was continually featured on the iTunes shopfront and was awarded Best of iTunes.
After years of creating professional shows and podcasts, recording and editing audio and talking into a mic, starting a show from my lounge room was a natural progression, but what if you’re just starting out?
“Just because you’re doing a show in your pyjamas doesn’t mean it can’t sound professional”
Getting things right takes time, effort and knowledge. Wing it for long enough and you’ll eventually get there but if you’re starting from scratch it can take years to find your groove.
So why not speed up the process and join me in PodSchool?
I can give you the skills and knowledge to set up a home studio, record a show and present it like a true professional. I can also give you tips on how to edit so you sound like a one-take wonder and add audio elements to your show to make it sound like it rolled straight out of a radio studio.
And I can do this even if you have ZERO experience.
I want to help you avoid blindly stumbling around in the audio dark and give you everything you need to make sure your show is at its best from the moment you press record on your first episode.

Warning: it’s not easy, but if you’re creating a show you love it’s absolutely do-able. When in doubt, think of Kevin Costner – “Build it and they will come.”
Now I’ve got your attention!
While money is no guarantee in podcasting and it takes a lot of work to get to the point where you can turn your show into cash, it is possible.
It won’t happen over night but it
