Great podcast very informative..
I've just recently found this incredible podcast. I have a small YouTube channel and I'm looking to launch a podcast to carry our message further. Great intro makes me think of the "Night at the Roxberry". Not very long though 20-30 mins but full of info. They have covered just about everything I'm dealing with my podcast. Keep up the content I'll keep listening..
Thanks for listening!
