Customer Reviews

And I’m not even starting a podcast (yet)

I’ll admit my bias up front: I love Dan Benjamin’s shows. I’ve spent so many hours listening to his voice he feels like a friend, so I would probably like almost any show he did.

Having said that, I still feel like this one’s really good. I’m not planning a podcast imminently, though I’d like to do one some day, and I’d really like to help my wife start one. This first episode mixed in general and specific advice in pretty good measure, and the show notes will be gold to anyone who needs gear recommendations or further instruction.

More importantly, Dan’s enthusiasm for the medium and for encouraging creativity in others really shows here. If you’re thinking even a little seriously about starting a podcast, I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re writing your first show outline within minutes of listening to the first episode.

My First Dan Benjamin show

Ok, I'm only 4 minutes into the show, but it sounds great, and Dan is very easy to listen to. I subscribed and look forward to more - maybe one day I can be a guest on the show!

Excellent Quality

Dan has a rare talent for combining natural enthusiasm for the subject, hard won experience, and a professional attitude. This is a great podcast for those looking to get involved with the emerging podcast ecosystem.
