Got a favorite podcast? You're not alone. In fact, you're in the majority: According to a 2019 CBS poll, most Americans have listened to one, and nearly a quarter of them tune in on a regular basis.
That's a lot of ears, and believe it or not, there's a lot of niches left to fill. But starting a podcast takes more than equipment and a voice. It takes experience, and there's currently an online boot camp that distills a ton of it from some preeminent talent behind the scenes. How To Start A Podcast Bundle Feat. Award-Winning Podcast Producers lives up to its name, with tips from none other than "This American Life" producer Alex Blumberg - and that's just for starters.
The course gives a nuts-and-bolts primer on equipment and technique from "EntrepreneurOnFIre" host John Lee Dumas, and brand-building tips from "The School of Greatness" podcaster Lewis Howes. There are two invaluable courses on storytelling taught by none other than Blumberg along with NPR colleagues Anna Sussman and Julia DeWitt (of "Snap Judgement" fame). That's a lot of insight for a broadcasting course of any kind, much less an online bundle that clocks in at just over 20 hours.
Individually, these courses sell for $266, but you can get lifetime access to the complete podcasting bundle for $19 - more than 90% off.

While mosquitoes have certainly earned their title as the deadliest animal on earth, their impact on most of our lives is usually a lot less consequential.

Thankfully, your filming options have also […]
