What REALLY works in podcasting?

How can you use it to grow your business, brand or just to have fun?

There are a lot of myths out there about podcasting and video podcasting. If they were all right then 92% of people wouldn’t give up within a few episodes!

I’m on a mission to find the truth. I’m fed up of all the noise and I want to know what works.

In this show, I study the best creators in the world and then put their ideas to the test to see if people like you and me can do the same.

This is a show about the real world where some stuff works and some doesn’t.

I study what people do rather what they say, to find the nuggets of information that make the most difference.

Can I Make a Hit Podcast is a podcast about finding out what really works in the real world.
