Fulltime Podcast Producer

Fulltime Podcast Producer

My name is Isaac, and I am a full-time podcast producer.Before covid, I was stuck in a dead-end job with terrible hours, making very little. There were no opportunities available to me in my degree field or that related to my past work experience.Fast forward to present day, I am a full-time producer with a list of clients I love working with. I have surrounded myself with other professionals who value my skill set and who pay me to do what I excel at.This podcast is for anyone who knows what it takes to make a podcast, and are ready to turn that skill set into another stream of income. The goal is to create a business (full time or part time), where you can leverage your production skill set to reach your financial goals.If you’re ready to save time & frustration by following the same business model I’ve used to quit my 9-5 and become a full time podcast producer…scroll up and click ‘follow’.

Can everyone see your show in search? Can YOU see your show in search? When you open Spotify or apple, does your podcast even show up?


If there was one thing I could change about podcasting, it would be that they would do a better job with their search engine. One of the advantages of YouTube that we dont talk much about is that YouTube is treated as a data base. You can type in a question and get video results. Podcasting is n...

So want to be a guest on another person’s podcast.

Be cautious, because there is definitely a right and wrong way to go about doing that.


A lot of requests to be a guest on another podcaster’s show go unread and unanswered. 


The key to getting invited isnt just to stand out, it is also to be short, direct, and respectful of their time. 


So many podcasters who reach out make it all about “me, me, me”. Lets talk ...

Do you have to have a large show to make money off your podcast? Can having a podcast generate revenue for you and/or your business? Can I see a return on my investment as a podcaster?

I just had a conversation with a prospective client who insisted that money was no object when it came to setting up his home podcast studio.

As much as I might love hearing that as a producer, it introduces a new line of problems that people on a tight budget also face.

Are you needing to sound like a million bucks without spending a million bucks?


As I shared in past episodes, you don't have to break the bank in order to sound great.
