Book

“An honest (maybe too honest) and personal tale of what it really takes to be a podcaster. Do not start a show without reading this book first.” — Jay Baer – President of Convince & Convert Media, and host of the Social Pros podcast

Do you think you have what it takes to start a popular and profitable podcast? Pod Castaway chronicles entrepreneur Brandon Uttley’s often misguided attempts to crack into the top ranks of podcasters. Both funny and revealing, the book describes how much effort it takes to launch and sustain a podcast—and attempt to make it stand out in a sea of competitors.
