Show Notes

I’ll be the first to say that starting my podcast was a scary thing. I was definitely stepping out of my comfort zone.

But after talking about the topic with Danny Brown, I realized, it’s a totally normal thing!

As Head of Podcaster Experience over at CaptivateFM, Danny Brown is no stranger to the podcasting scene. And even he was nervous when he first set out to launch his show, Podcaster Stories.

Starting a podcast is like opening a new door of unknown and limitless possibilities. That can be intimidating, but the effort is SO well worth it.

But don’t just take my work for it, listen to my conversation with Danny as we navigate this space and recount his own experiences with launching Podcaster Storiers.
