Online Recording Service
SquadCastGet a 7-day free trial!
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.

Podcast Hosting Service
LibsynGet your 1st month free!
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.
Web Hosting Service
DreamhostSee the latest offers
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.
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.
TrelloGet started with Trello
Here is where I organize the steps to release my own episodes, my clients’ episodes, and even to organize a client launch.
DropboxOpen your Dropbox
Can anyone run a business without Dropbox these days? This is where I store files offsite and share with clients and team members.
ConvertKitSend better emails
Send better emails and tag your subscribers according to their interests.
Custom cover art. Instagram posts. Oh so much more!
HeadlinerCreate your account
Design visual audio snippets of your show to share on social.
Online community building
Mighty NetworksLearn about creating your community
Facebook Groups are so 2020. Mighty Networks is a premium place to build your online community away from adbots.
Bookshop.orgShop for books
Get your books online NOT from Amazon, support indie bookshops AND The Creative Impostor. Plus recommended reading lists curated by me and my creative community. Everyone wins!
ThredupGet $10 off your 1st purchase
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.
Specialty Grocery Delivery
Imperfect FoodsGet an $80 credit
I love that they have local, imperfect, organic, vegan, and gluten free options! Currently delivering to deliver to most of the West South Central region, Midwest, Northeast and all along the West Coast of the U.S. You can check your zip code. If you’re new, you’ll get $20 off your first 4 orders.
You can totally make your show on your own, but you don’t have to podcast alone.
