"This was a 4 hour course, which I began 6 months ago and watched 2 hours in about 2 days. I watched the other two hours a week ago and I really did learn a lot more than I expected. If you have a good long weekend, you could finish this course promptly and get a lot done. Though you can go step by step alongside the video, I watched the entire content to get the bigger picture. The quizzes are just there to see if you can recall the information, so they aren't complex but a good way to summarize what you covered. As of the writing of this review, I have officially published my podcast called Leveled Up Gamers on iTunes thanks to the instructor, Ian Robinson. The course shows some screens that slightly differ form the website, since it is and older course. That being said, you can figure what those changes are on your own but Mr. Robinson responds to your questions in 24 hours and with every response is an encouraging comment. I had no clue how to get a podcast going and Mr. Robinson took me from the basic steps (such as how to have a good folder structure to not get confused with where you have been saving your audio/podcast art files) to how to the basics of tools like garage band and audacity to improve the quality of the podcast. Over all, I can't recommend this class enough, especially those you already have the equipment necessary but don't know how to make that next step into actually getting to iTunes. I submitted my podcast and got approved in less than 24 hours! Thank you Mr. Robinson."

" (edited to announce I am on iTunes! Thank you, Ian!) Ian has created a Masterpiece of a course! I have an undergraduate and a Master's degree, and I would have to say this class ranks right up there as one of the best, perhaps the very best class I have ever taken, anywhere. This is a great teacher, folks. Ian has broken down the very technical content of creating a podcast into understandable, manageable lessons that I believe anyone can follow if they put in the time. He even manages to make the technical lessons fun and interesting. The system Ian teaches for post-interview audio engineering is simple yet brilliant, and I would never have figured out these methods without this course. Ian is one of the most responsive, helpful available teachers I have ever encountered. I know he has my back and would do anything to help. I was waiting to write this review until I actually had my podcast up and running, so that I could encourage future students from the position of someone who had made it to iTunes. I am writing this review now because Ian so highly deserves it, and because I want potential students to know that they will highly benefit from enrolling in this course. Ian, thank you for all your help so far!"

"If you'd like to create a podcast, just make your recordings and share them with us via DropBox. We will do the rest."

I started the company in 2011. Initially, the whole company was just me producing show podcasts. Word of mouth helped me to accumulate more clients than I could personally produce for. Then I started bringing people onboard. We're eight people now and we produce more than 30 shows.

"When I first started this course, I had doubts that I could actually produce a quality podcast on my own. However, after only a few lessons, Ian helped me realize that those fears were only in my head. By following his instructions in the course, I was able to easily setup, record, edit and publish my very own podcast that is now published on iTunes! I can't recommend this course enough. The way that Ian has put together the learning material makes it extremely simple to learn......and he keeps it fun! Podcasting has helped transform my business by allowing me to access the influencers in my industry. And, by doing so, I am building my own positive reputation along the way. Thank you Ian.....you are the man!!!" Trevor Turnbull host of The WordPress Authorities Show

I cut out all the junk so you can learn AS FAST AS POSSIBLE. Don't spend 2-3 days producing a lower quality podcast and waiting through slow, unhelpful tutorials.

"I honestly didn't expect to like this course as much as I did. I thought I would separate it over a few days because I figured it would be really technical. Once I started the course, I couldn't stop and accidentally ended up finishing it in one day. It is so interesting! the instructor is fantastic and very good at explaining what he is doing and gives you the confidence that you can do it yourself. I highly recommend this course."
