Resources from The CU Marketing Hero Summit

Thanks for checking out my session on how to Create Your Own Podcast during The CU Marketing Hero Summit.

Right away, let me put it out there that I’m always available to answer any questions you might have. Don’t hesitate to reach out through email ( And, if you want to bookmark where you can find the Marketing the Movement podcast in 2020, that’s right here. I’ve also created a Facebook Group for the podcast (and you can find that right here).

If you want a copy of the slides from my presentation, I converted them into a PDF (you can download that by CLICKING HERE).

There were some resources that came up during conversations after my presentation and I’ll do my best to list those all here, too.

Pat Flynn is one of several podcasting experts out there. His “How to Start a Podcast” tutorial is great and includes updated videos that are extremely helpful.


I use LibSyn for my podcast file hosting. It’s easy to use and plans start at just $5/month.


My current setup uses Audacity for recording and editing. It’s an open source piece of audio software that works across all platforms. Oh yeah…and it’s FREE! Just go to the link and download.

In the past I’ve done my recording and editing in GarageBand. If you have any Apple product, you should already have GarageBand on there. Look for this icon:

I currently use Adobe Audition to piece everything together and export the final mixdown as an mp3. Really, I only use this software because I already have it as part of my Adobe Creative Cloud subscription. The way I’m using Audition is similar to driving a half block at 10 mph in a Ferrari – not at all using the machine to its full potential.
