Had the privilege to meet and present with Addy Saucedo, creator of The Podcast Planner, at Podfest back in February. As soon as I heard her discussing this product I knew this was something we had to share.One of best benefits touted by Addy about The Podcast Planner is that it can help you avoid podfading.Because the planner helps you organize your thoughts and brainstorm a strategy, you are more likely to stick to a plan and create a thriving product. This will also help you identify the right topic to discuss on your show and avoid vanitycasting.However, in this chat with Addy, we review more than just the benefits of The Podcast Planner itself. We also talk about the lessons she has learned as a podcaster and producer that have led to successes. Things like focusing on a single listener and not trying to appeal to everyone at once. She also noted that once you've published your episode, the battle is only half over, you have to market it.

I had the pleasure of meeting Chris Krimitsos at DC Podfest in 2016. This was one of the nicest, most genuine people that I have ever interacted with in the space. Now, this was all after podtopod had decided to sponsor his podcast documentary The Messengers, (click to watch trailer) but he spoke with so much passion and was just an incredible person to meet.It is because of that passion and warmth that I was super excited to book my ticket to attend his Podfest Multimedia Expo.

I was excited to talk to Chris about the show and I hope you’ll hear his passion and genuine desire to grow this space.Learn more and come say hi to me at podfest!
