Hey, I'm Todd Nevins and I'm a podcast creator and host, and I coach others on how to launch their own podcast even if they are starting from zero because that was me.
In this course you will learn how to build your podcast show foundation, record your first episode, edit that episode and publish it to iTunes. I've also put in a bonus lecture to help you create a marketing strategy to grow your audience.
