This is a podcast by Aurooba Ahmed about the stuff she makes and what goes into making it. The first season is a 30 day challenge where an episode will be released every single day for 30 days. This is crazy, hilarious, and definitely a bootcamp in starting and running a podcast. Topics discussed: morning routine, taking an idea from concept to launch, coffee habits, WordPress awesomeness, living a full life, and more.

Great information . . .
This podcast has the sound and feel of something that’s been around for a long time. Aurooba has a soothing and professional voice, gives sound advice with a bit of humor and lightheartedness. There are a number of podcasts with good information that are delivered in a voice and style that I cannot tolerate listening to.
I like the idea of listening everyday to a short version podcast . . . Aurooba Makes is now on my ‘favorite’ list for podcasts.
