It stands to reason: one of the best formats to learn about podcasting is...podcasts! Dave Jackson creates Profit from Your Podcast as a supplement to his book of the same name. Jackson's been in the podcasting biz for two decades. He was an instructor of all things technology before that. His mission's always been to educate folks who feel they're on the outside looking in when it comes to tech. But of all his tech-related interests, podcasting proved the best way to double down. He gets to be creative, he gets to nerd out on technical stuff, and he gets to help people.
Profit from Your Podcast episodes post roughly once a month. They are brief and to the point. Each entry contains expert interviews and tech tidbits that expand upon the book's concepts. Jackson and his guests discuss carving out one's niche as a huge key to success. They stress prioritizing quality and dynamic content above all else.
Absolute beginners will get plenty of good out of Profit from Your Podcast. Jackson does mention, though, that he wrote the book and does the podcast with a specific focus. He wanted to go beyond all the startup talk that most other how-to's on podcasting concentrate on. So there's not as much talk of finding the right gear, learning how to record, or choosing the right software. Profit from Your Podcast exists to help folks master the monetization of their show.
Jackson has plenty of other podcasts that boast much longer episodes and provide advice on what to do from Day One. His other helpful podcasts include School of Podcasting and Ask the Podcast Coach.
