How can we help you?

What type of podcast are you planning?

At a cursory glance, you may be thinking that "a podcast is a podcast", however, we've identified three distinct categories (and metrics of success):

  • Selling a product/service/influence to your audience (the audience is your customer)
  • Selling the audience's attention (the audience is your product, advertisers are your customers)
  • Hobbyist (to meet new people, improve your skills, or just have some fun)

It's crucial you are clear on which you're making before you book a studio and get behind the microphone. Each of these has a distinctly different personality and metrics of success, and necessitate entirely different planning and production strategies. We will guide you through this process.

Once you've identified your podcast type, take our Podcast Personality Test, designed to help you gain unparalleled insights into your podcast. Much like the renowned Myers-Briggs test unveils aspects of your personality, our test delves into the heart of your podcasting ambitions, guiding you toward content creation that's as individual as you are. Your podcast is a canvas, and with this test, you'll discover the perfect brushstrokes to create a masterpiece. It's not just about understanding yourself; it's about shaping your podcasting path in a way that aligns with your goals.

If you're wondering 'how do I start a podcast?' then our custom podcast startup template is the place to start. It's helped hundreds of people to get going and may be just what you've been looking for. Or, you could join us for the Write Pod-itude Workshop where you will discover how it works, how it's done, and why it matters, so you can leverage the power of audio to create compelling content.

The best time to start a podcast was 10 years ago, the next best time is today.

#BeHeard: Tell the world your story.

Radio programmes have been around for decades, yet podcasts have become one of the most significant new media formats of the 21st century. Podcasts are still a new form of media, and so there is plenty of room for innovation.

Podcasts: Anything! Everywhere!

Like radio, but better. Podcasts are meaningful, entertaining and useful independent audio shows that can be downloaded free using an app on your phone, tablet or PC.

Podcasts educate, inform or entertain, and are often a combination of these three objectives. For example, a fun gameshow that's really teaching history or science. From poetry to arts and drama, advice on how to grow your business to growing your own vegetables—if you can imagine it, you can podcast it.

Use a free app such as iTunes / Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or Castbox, to follow podcast channels of your choice. These apps will even download new episodes for you automatically as they are published.

Audiobooks are more popular than ebooks

Podcasts are not alone when it comes to massive growth. In 2020, audiobooks outsold ebooks. With no end in sight for this trend, and to accommodate our numerous clients who write books, we've built more studios dedicated to recording audiobooks.

If you don’t want to read your book yourself, you’re in luck! We’ve gathered together a delightful group of excellent voices to read it for you.

For a cost estimate to turn your creation into an audiobook, email us at and let us know how many chapters there are and an approximate word count.

You have a captive audience.

Your audience chooses to listen to you, and is likely to do so while driving around. This is something they can't do with a video or a brochure. It's like your customers asking you to send a sales representative to drive around with them explaining a case study.

Genuine engagement

Podcasts dive deeply into your content and help build trust between you and your audience.

Always available

Podcasts are a great companion to daily life and turn an activity into an informative experience.

US population that listens to podcasts each month

Podcasting is big. Really big. And still the fastest growing medium.

Over 50% of the US population listened to a podcast last month. Over each of the past few years, the number of podcasts has doubled, re-doubled, and doubled again. There are now more than five-million podcast shows and more than 70-million episodes. These staggering numbers are part of the reason we're so excited to provide you with an end-to-end podcast service.
