Show Notes

Yes, this is a podcast episode of a podcast with two podcasters talking about podcasting, say that as quickly as you can and you may win a prize!*

You’ll have heard Arielle’s name pop up on many episodes of this show, as she’s been such an incredible supporter of both the show and me personally as a podcaster through the SquadPod community, as well as other great resources and her energetic Twitter presence.

Whether you just listen to lots of podcasts, are already a podcaster, or are looking to start a podcast, I think you’ll find something of value in this week’s episode. It was a genuine pleasure to chat with Arielle and we’d absolutely love your thoughts on both listening to and creating podcasts, send those over to [email protected], leave a comment on the post, or start a discussion in Goodpods.

If you liked this episode or any of our content, we’d greatly appreciate any little bit of support you can throw our way over at our Ko-Fi page.

(*) Please note, no actual prize is available, though if you want to send in audio clips we’ll absolutely feature the best one on our social media!

    As the local Crossed Wires call girl, this episode was so much fun! Thank you Arielle for coming onto our show! It also helped inspire me a lot as sometimes podcasting can be so disheartening when you don’t see the stats you are hoping for, etc.

    P.S. I LOVE SquadCast!!!

We'd love to hear your thoughts...
