I get a lot of questions from people confused about whether they should launch their podcast with one or multiple episodes.

 How to get your podcast featured in New & Noteworthy | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 615

Getting featured in Apple's New & Noteworthy section has become something of an obsession for new podcasters.

If you've been researching how to start a podcast you've probably come across the term "RSS Feed." If you don't know what it is, don't worry.

 How loud should your podcast be? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 268

If you've been podcasting for a long time you'll probably know the frustration of flipping from one podcast to another, or even from one episode of the same show to another and having to increase or decrease your volume.

In this episode I take you through the standard level of podcast loudness you should be applying across every episode.

So, what are your options? In this episode I take you through the different ways you can remote record your podcast and which option gives you the best audio quality.
