My name is Dave Jackson. I have been podcasting since 2005, and I have helped hundreds of people start a podcast. When I do one on one consulting, I charge $199/hr. The problem is there is only one of me, and so many people who want to start a podcast (and only so many hours in the day). So I created the School of Podcasting to help people who want to start a podcast. Not everyone can afford my consulting fees (and there is only one of me to go around), so I took my experience and put it into step by step tutorials.
Other places that want to teach you how to podcast are run by salesmen. You don't take your car to your dentist to get it fixed, so why would to go to a salesman to learn? You go to an educator. Watch me save one of my client's HOURS of time.
When you join the School of Podcasting you get my years of experience at your fingertips, delivered in a format that you can consume at your own pace. Here is what you get:

Why Learn From Me?
Two words: I CARE. I've been leading people through technology for almost 20 years. I have a Degree in Education (specializing in Technical Education), but podcasting is my passion and I love to help people start successful podcasts. EX-DJs are charging twice as much. While a DJ knows how to talk into a microphone, podcasting is really different (better) than radio. You can spend two months at the School of Podcasting and still pay less than other courses. You don't take your car to the dentist when it's broken so why go to a salesmen when you need to learn a new topic. You need a teacher. You need a coach. That's me. We are a “no jargon zone.”
In addition to the tutorials you will have access to the best resources on the Internet for Music, Graphics, WordPress Themes, Hosting, and all the other tools to create a successful podcast.
