got questions?

FAQ TIME!

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?

don’t just take my word for it

“This class was worth every dollar. To have every resource I needed (especially the ones I didn’t even know I needed) in one spot streamlined this process and made it less intimidating. I found myself coming back to a video multiple times as I completed steps and being appreciative that I did not have to digest everything all at once. Truly a smart investment for me since I wanted a show that would be quality and sustainable.”
