The beautiful thing about the podcasting industry, at large, is the fact that it’s generally untapped. In other words, there’s a ton of opportunity out there for motivated folks to build the very business that they’ve always wanted to have!

Here are three interviews from the
1st Season that include folks that are my own investors with my current company:
