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.

    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...
