What Podcasting Gurus Don't Tell You!

But you absolutely must know before starting a podcast...

Introduction to Podcast Technology

1.
SHORT, FOCUSED LESSONS

Introduction to Podcast Technology contains no filler material. Lessons are brief and each one focuses on a very specific aspect of the podcast production process.

2.
THE RIGHT BALANCE OF INSTRUCTION AND EXPLANATION

Introduction to Podcast Technology doesn't simply tell you what to do and expect you to follow blindly. Instead, each lesson explains why a given tool or technique is necessary, the pitfalls of getting it wrong, and the role it plays in the overall podcasting process.

3.
OVER-THE-SHOULDER / STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTION

You won't find lists of rules or "shoulds" in Introduction to Podcast Technology. Instead, you'll look over the shoulder of a podcaster and audio production expert as he demonstrates real world tools and techniques. You won't be left alone to figure out the hard parts on your own.

4.
AN HONEST MESSAGE

No one dares tell a carpenter, "Your don't need saws, hammers, or drills to build a house." No one tells a guitar player, "You can make beautiful music without learning to play." But, for some reason, it's become acceptable to tell a podcaster, "Technology isn't important." Technology isn't the ONLY important aspect of podcasting but it is most definitely, ONE very important aspect.

He later went on to obtain a university degree in Electrical Engineering.

What People are Saying...

"... cuts through the jungle of all the advice..."

The course cuts through the jungle of all the advice, recommendations and advertising out there for podcasting gear. David sets out what you must have, what you probably need and what can take you to the next level based on your goals and budget. No one else does that so well and without an ulterior motive. The course is motivational and the exercises are empowering. You see the light at the end of the tunnel and realize it’s getting closer through the assignments in each installment.

I would wholeheartedly recommend the course to anyone interested in podcasting. Having searched, I can tell you there’s nothing else like it, nothing else as good and nothing else as helpful. Every true expert I’ve ever known — on any subject — understood it to the level that he could make it seem simple. David Power is a true expert when it comes to podcasting!

"Don't try and reinvent the wheel..."

David's podcast modules were a huge help AND inspiration to launching my own podcast. Each lesson was simple and easy to follow along, and when you're just starting out YOU NEED GREAT INFORMATION. Don't try and reinvent the wheel, learn from someone that has been there!

"... the best of the bunch."

I have explored many books and have listened to other podcasters and marketers but David's course is the best of the bunch. Certain podcasting topics can be very difficult to grasp but David's explanation and demonstration allowed me to master them. I would definitely recommend this course. It is straight to the point, covers all the essentials, provides tips and tricks of the trade, and David's instruction promotes confidence and competence in his students.

  • You're interested in creating a world-class podcast—one that ranks in production quality with the best in the business.
  • You're a self-starter and action-taker and you're willing to do the work.
  • You value learning from an instructor who's produced audio for over twenty years.
  • You know the investment you make to enroll in this course will come back to you tenfold in the time you'll save learning to podcast on your own.

YOU'RE A BAD FIT IF:

  • ​You're undecided about starting a podcast or have not yet decided on a show name, topic, or format.
  • You believe the podcasting gurus who tell you, "Technology isn't important."
  • You believe sub-standard audio recordings are "... good enough for a podcast."

I've read sales pages for online courses and wondered, "What if this doesn't work for me?" or, "What if the course doesn't deliver what it promises?" I don't want you to have these concerns. So, I'm going to remove them with this guarantee: If you enroll in Introduction to Podcast Technology today and discover the course doesn't meet your expectations in any way, simply send an email to my support team within 30 days of your purchase and I'll return every penny.
