Just a few tips on creating a successful podcast. 

PICK A TOPIC:

Whether you love Star Wars, pop culture, movies, Magic: The Gathering, Stranger Things, horror movies, biking, running, inspiring, cooking, etc. you can create a podcast about anything. It can be as focused as one specific topic or as broad as an entire genre. Or it can be about everything in between. We suggest deciding on this before you come in.

GRAB A FRIEND:

Whether you want one co-host or 8, or if you've decided to go it alone, we have enough mics and table space for you. We recommend picking cohosts who will show up on a consistent basis and are as committed as you are to podcasting
