I first discovered Kevin Chemidlin when contemplating creating a new show based on podcast growth. It's well-produced and has actual steps you can take.
Kevin started his first podcast Philly Who? Then quit his day job. So how did he turns things around to the point of making six figures? He stopped and took time to learn what works, and then give it to the audience.
