Better Podcasting

Hosted ByStephen Jondrew & Stargate Pioneer

Better Podcasting is a show hosted by two proud hobby podcasters. Each episode is dedicated to sharing some tips, tools and recommendations to help hobby podcasters succeed at their craft.

This is the original Better Podcasting podcast that you’ve known for years – the main feed if you will. While the show originally ran from 2015 to 2019 in a weekly format, in 2020 we changed to a bi-weekly schedule so that we could help free up some time to create other resources for hobby podcasters. Of course, you may see the occasionally bonus episode during our “off weeks”.
