95 million Americans listened to a podcast last week - will yours be one of them next week?

Podcasting can help you gain status and notoriety as a subject-matter authority, and effectively build an audience by reaching your entire market.

At the gym, in the car, walking the dog, on the train...podcast listeners are literally inviting your message into their ears everywhere they go, if only you would create a show for them to listen to.

Over a BILLION people listen to podcasts. They could be listening to yours.

"I'm impressed as a listener and as a guest at how quickly Chris was able to start a professional podcast, Chasing Product. Learn from Chris how to interview effectively, talk with respected figures in your field, and build an audience. If you've been thinking of starting a podcast, hit the ground running with RECORD & RELEASE."

Oh, wait, that's not all RECORD & RELEASE can teach you.
There's more.

How to choose a show topic

It's easier than you think - much easier! Use a naturalistic approach to picking a topic.

How to name your show

Everyone wants a clever, original name, but is that really what you need to get started?

Episode-production checklist

Through trial and error, I've found a workflow that if effective for me - and you can copy it to get started!

How to get listed on iTunes

It's not magic, but it is tedious. Get all the pieces in place in order to be able to be listed on iTunes.

Starting with affordable gear

Podcasting is a very forgiving format. You can sound good-enough-to-get-started on a budget to start out! Worry about fancy gear later.

Ways to attract listeners

If a podcast goes live and there's nobody to hear it, did it really happen? Leverage social media and e-mail to draw attention to your show.



"As a guest on Chasing Product, Chris has created a really smooth and streamlined operation for guests. Chris' past guests on Chasing Product shows that he has what it takes to get influential guests, create compelling interviews and generate some interesting content. Now that he's created a book on how to replicate this, if you're starting a podcast of your own, I'd highly recommend reading it!"
Dave Rodenbaugh
Co host, RogueStartups podcast

"If you've ever thought of creating a podcast and held off because you didn't know where to start, RECORD & RELEASE was built for you. It's a step by step guide for creating and launching a podcast. RECORD & RELEASE walks you from idea to launch and everything in between. You'll learn about the gear you need, how to land prominent guests, interview strategies, how to produce the podcast, how to distribute your new podcast and more. Chris shows you the ropes fast so you can launch your podcast this week rather than 'someday'."
Mike Taber
Co host, Startups for the Rest Of Us podcast

"I've known Chris for over a decade and been a guest on his Chasing Product podcast. Though the technology of podcasting has been around a while, it's just starting to hit mainstream consciousness. There's never been a better time to get started and RECORD & RELEASE gives you everything you need to get rolling. It's the book I wish I'd had when I first started Bootstrapped.fm 2 years ago."

About the Author

Hi, I'm Christopher Hawkins, creator and host of the Chasing Product podcast.

As an experienced web developer and project manager, I've applied my technical and organizational skills to the field of podcasting, creating the workflows and systems described in RECORD & RELEASE as I learned how to podcast.

My goal is to help all of you start a podcast - hackers, businessmen, TV show enthusiasts, news junkies, whoever. Podcasting is a big world, and there's room for all of us!

"It's about time Chris wrote a book! There's so much interest in podcasting and so much opportunity to do it better than anyone else is doing it. Chris is an outstanding podcast host - I had a great time as a guest on his show, and he's been really awesome about keeping our relationship alive since. If you're gonna learn podcasting from anyone, you should learn it from Chris."
