Sign up to find out more and I’ll send you a copy of my podcasting guide to get you started!
In this module, we go through everything you need to know BEFORE you start your podcast.
If you’ve already got an idea, great! We’ll work out if it’s the right one or if you’re barking up the wrong tree.
If you have no idea what you want to do I’ll help you find an idea that’s right for you.
I’ll take you through everything you need to set up your own home studio (without having to mortgage your home or sell a kidney).
Which microphone is right for your dulcet tones
What recording equipment and editing software will work best for your show and your budget
Advanced options if you want to get really swish
If you find the idea of sitting behind a microphone terrifying, I’ll let you in on a few industry secrets that will help you sound calm, confident and in control (even if you’re crapping yourself).
If your personality has a tendency to turn itself up to 11, I’ll help you calm things down and find your performance sweet spot.
I’ve packaged together everything I’ve learned from 16 years in the biz to help you present like a pro.
I’ll show you how to set yourself up for success from the minute you press record.
Editing can make or break your podcast so you’ve got to make the most of it.
In this module, I’ll take you through why editing is important and how you can use it to completely turn your show around.
Everything you need to know to get your show from your computer, into peoples earholes.
Getting a podcast out into the world is about more than just recording an episode.
In this module, we’ll discuss all the bits and pieces you need around a podcast episode.
What good is a podcast if there’s nobody listening to it, right? Plus, if you want to make podcasting a part of your business then earbuds in ears means potential dollars in your wallet. So in this module, I’ll take you through the best practice methods to grow your audience.
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
will can happen!

A comprehensive guide covering all the tools and tech you need to set up your own home studio and start your own podcast. Descriptions, pictures, recommendations and links that will help you make an informed choice about what’s right for you, no matter what your budget or level of expertise.
Do I need to have an idea for a podcast before I start the course?
Nope! In the first module, I’ll take you through strategies that will help you come up with an idea that’s right for you. If you’ve got the beginnings of a concept, I’ll help you work out if it’s worth pursuing and if you’ve got absolutely no idea I’ll help you get your creative juices flowing!
What do I do if I need help during the course?
Just shoot me an email! I limit the intake for each round of PodSchool so I can make sure I’m there to answer any questions you have as you work through the course.
Will I be able to start my own podcast at the end of this course?
You sure will! After finishing the PodSchool modules and bonus videos you’ll be armed with all the information professional podcasters have at their disposal, so the rest is up to you!
How long will it take me to complete?
That’s entirely up to you! The course contains over five hours of video lessons and tutorials, as well as editable PDFs, so if you’re super keen you could binge it all in one weekend (although I’d suggest taking longer to let everything sink in and implement what you’ve learned).
What if life gets in the way and it takes me a while to complete the course?
No problemos! You’ve got a full year access to the materials so you can go through the videos at your own pace. Plus all the workbooks, worksheets, and tech guide are fully downloadable so you can keep them forever if you want (awwww, how sweet!)
is it worth it?
“When I made the decision to start a podcast I googled ‘how to make a podcast’ and quickly realised I needed more help than I could easily find. When I came across this course I was hoping it would save me time and it did. I watched all the content, used the templates and started… several weeks later I had recorded an initial episode. During the whole process the information from Rachel was invaluable. It helped me focus on the right things, so I didn’t have to figure it out for myself. Thank you Rachel for providing this one stop shop for podcasting.” – Peter Linjse, host of BRM Cafe
