Yes, you heard me right. We’re alive! This is an very different moment in the world and as a person who has been working from home for the last year, I’m here to help you settle in and start communicating in a new way.
With finances tight, I’m offering two new workshops that can help you get going.
First, a FREE 101 workshop this Friday. I will be doing more in this 101 series over the next weeks adding to my skills library for clients.
Second, a 4 person cap launch group. I do personalized launches but as things are getting tighter in budgets, I wanted to make something affordable, at the $300 level. Group will start once we hit 3 people.
This is a great option and will also help keep Gritty Birds Podcasting floating while some clients are pausing. It’s been a tough spring but our brand is Grit. We are tough and believe in resilience and getting through the hard times through positivity and community.
Link to register is below. You can also sign up on the mailing list for the link and week’s offering straight to your inbox on Mondays.
This year is the first annual Podcast Editors Conference, which is taking place the day before PodFest in Orlando, Friday March 6th. The conference, founded by Mark Deal and Steve Stewart, features single sessions around building your podcast business.
My talk will be focused on organizational systems and workflows for communication and podcast development with clients. Using systems like Trello, Dropbox Paper and more to automate systems, allows us to be more organized and support clients in more creative ways.

RME/Synthax is one of the top-rated audio interface companies in the world. Their pre-amps and latency rates rank in the top percentages of all interfaces on the market today, with high audio conversion quality and a suite of tools including Total Mix Pro.
The Babyface Pro, has been used by myself and my company for several years in my home studio. I produced a video released this week highlighting the interface system. I am also featured prominently on the front page of RME’s primarily company page.
You can see the video here:
This spring I will be working with RME at NAMM in Anaheim, to interview artists and answer podcasting and gear questions.
Since not everyone can attend She Podcasts and not all podcasters have a budget to travel YET, I’m really excited that I’m part of the Podcasters Kit.
50 podcast leaders including myself.
Less than $40
You’ll get access to all the talks PLUS a ton of downloads.
I’ll be offering a link to a live version of my talk at She Podcasts Live on Content Development available only to Kit followers AND also including access to the slide deck of my years ongoing Podcast workshop with Portland’s Siren Nation.
Since I’m not giving the talk this year, this is the only place you can get this info this fall. It’s filled with an insane amount of content on creation, gear, hosts and more.
Pre registration is open now, click HERE or the photo below to sign up for registration reminders as we hit next week!

A couple years ago I applied for position doing audio for Iowa Public Radio. My family was stoked when I got the first interview. It was on a college campus a solid hour from the main freeways, much like the small town I grew up in, Fort Dodge.
I didn’t get the job and was torn. On one hand, I was not ready to leave the NW and go back to my home state. On the other hand, I loved producing audio and my mind was set on the process I’d assumed was the way people could work in podcast production: network positions.
Guess what, I was wrong.
Today, there is an entire growing industry around creating great audio for podcasts. Whether you are looking to hire someone, or want to get those skills in your own pocket, the fact is that the Podcast Boom is finally here.
How amazing is an era where you can use youtube for in-depth tutorials on sound issues, take an inexpensive workshop or join one of dozens of FB, Google, WeMe, or other communities that give whatever guidance you are curious about in minutes.
The podcast Boom is here. And after 4 years since releasing my first show, I’m here FT.
Are you in for the boom?
If you’re in the Portland Area, join in next week on Friday May 3, for the launch party including music by myself and a DJ set from DJ Pacemaker, 8 pm at the Barrio in the Portland Mercado.
