Nearly half of Americans listen to at least one podcast, and most listen to multiple shows, according to Edison Research. Podcasting Made Simple: A Step-by-Step Guide to Podcasting Success by Hilda Labrada Gore, left, and Charlie Birney, helps readers tap into that interest and reach the listeners who share their passions.

Labrada Gore and Birney use humor, Birney’s own illustrations, and insider insights to demystify the process of creating and launching a podcast. They guide readers step-by-step through the process of determining the focus of their shows and the best ways bring them to life, selecting the necessary gear, and recording and then releasing their shows to the world.

Dave Jackson, from School of Podcasting, says “Hilda and Charlie…explain not only what worked for them but what didn’t. They cover the topics that many podcasters skip over in a rush to get to the microphone. This book will definitely save you some headaches and help you to produce a podcast that will connect with your audience.”

Podcasting Made Simple: A Step-by-Step Guide to Podcasting Success is available on Amazon as a Kindle e-book ($5.99) and in paperback ($10.99).

Labrada Gore is a health coach, fitness professional, and a podcast host and consultant. She launched the Wise Traditions podcast two years ago, and it has already surpassed one million downloads. Birney is executive director of Podcast Village, as well as a broadcast and webcast advisor and speaker.
