The Creative Impostor Faves

Welcome to a non-comprehensive list of some of Your Podcast Boss’s favorite podcasting AND creative business resources to help make your creative endeavors the envy of everyone else.

Some of products and services featured are even Podcast Angels! Podcast Angels are those products, services, opportunities that provide a win-win-win for you, them, and me in the form of an affiliate relationship.

I only recommend those services I have used and love myself. Affiliates may provide me with compensation, either monetary or service in exchange for being a product/service matchmaker for you!

Production

  • Online Recording Service

    Squadcast

    My primary go-to for recording interviews online. Better sound quality than zoom. Excellent file management.

    Descript will blow your mind when you see how you can edit text in order to simplify editing audio. This is a MUST for content editing beyond your standard dialogue cleanup.

Operations

  • Podcast Hosting Service

    Libsyn

    My preferred company for hosting your media files and distributing them to the different podcast directories or destinations. When you have content recorded and ready to launch, sign up for an account and use promo code “envy” for your first month free. They also have a free Quickstart webinar on demand for launching a new show.

  • Web Hosting Service

    Dreamhost

    I love Dreamhost for registering domains, and hosting your website (mine is built in WordPress). Their customer service, reliability, and sustainability practices are top-notch.

  • Scheduling Service

    Calendly

    I could NOT run my business or show without Calendly. No more emails back and forth about scheduling. Their free service is pretty great if you just need it for booking guests. More complexity and options come at an affordable price.

  • Project Management

    Trello

    Here is where I organize the steps to release my own episodes, my clients’ episodes, and even to organize a client launch.

    Can anyone run a business without Dropbox these days? This is where I store files offsite and share with clients and team members.

    ConvertKit

    Send better emails and tag your subscribers according to their interests.

  • Clothing Resale

    Thredup

    Once upon a time, I hosted these amazing clothing swaps in Chicago. Thredup is the next best thing. The orange dress and the gray dress featured in some of my photos on this site came from there. Buy gently used, sell gently used.
