Did you know that thanks to a 2019 law it’s now a federal requirement for everyone to at least think about starting a podcast by the time they’re 25? It’s true! But while the barriers to entry for making and publishing your own show are incredibly low, making your podcast stand out – and turning a profit from it – can take a lot longer than you might think. Podcast writer, producer and host Greg Benson leads a talk offering practical (and some fun but not so useful) tips for making your podcast stand out, growing your audience, and attracting the attention of the folks who write checks.
