Episode #122 How to Start a Podcast

July 7, 2022


Podcasting has been one of my favorite things about creating my business. I get to set all of my own rules. I get to talk about the subjects that are most important to me. I get to have interviews and bring people on so that we can learn about things in other people's worlds. We can learn new techniques.

Everybody gets to have a voice, and this is your chance. Imagine all of the possibilities of what you could do with the podcast. 

My guest, Kara Gott Warner, is going to teach you all about how to get your podcast up and running. She even has a really great program where she takes care of all of the tech setup for you. It’s called Podcast In A Day, it makes this an easy thing for you to do.

You have a message to share with the world. You can make such a huge impact by using your voice.  Let's get you started!


In this episode, we talk about:

  • Kara’s podcast journey, starting all the way back in 2014!
  • Her very first guest and the spontaneity of evolving your podcast.
  • Expanding your podcast to new ideas instead of scrapping it completely.
  • The wild west of podcasting, seriously, create your own rules and processes as you go!
  • Creating a podcast routine that makes sense for you.
  • Rebranding or launching a new podcast show.
  • Getting started, you need less equipment than you’d think. 
  • How much does it really cost? We share cost-friendly microphones, editing apps, and podcast hosts.
  • Podcasting with purpose, using your voice as an art form and the platforms to make an impact beyond marketing.
