The first group of episode really focused on how to just get yourself connected and GOING with your new streaming life.
A huge piece of that puzzle for multiple clients was getting going with online events. Over the weeks we have seen online concerts, online conferences, online meetings. Everything you can possibly consider for setting up online, we went there.
As goes with any new show, I’m constantly tweaking the format to create something that people love and looks amazing. So, I decided to bring on a true pro to tell us what HE knows along with a shorter workshop format.
Joe is the host of many shows and also the founder of Indiepodcon. The quickly growing podcast conference and online community has hosted multiple online conferences on various pod related topics over the last months. So, I knew he would be a fantastic person to chat with.
Joe chats how he uses different programs in different ways, including OBS and Streamyard. He also tells us his history of streaming and creating events and why in person events are still key to networking.

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.

Anyone who has read any of my articles, come to one of my talks, watched my videos or spoken to me in the last 6 months since I launched my company KNOWS…
I’m really obsessed with helping people make better and more organized content.
Nov is always the month that I use to reflect and PLAN. It’s my half birthday and often very full with workshops, panels and more. Most of my great plans have taken fruition in Nov, through all the amazing writing challenges out there.
This year is going to be more exciting than ever. I’m going to be releasing a ton of material AND even better, giving a 4 week long workshop.
I want YOU to join me in creation, through the methods I’ve used over the years to p
lan festivals, create records, produce podcasts and plan a classroom. You can create amazing content too.
