STARTING THIS PODCAST HAS BEEN AN UPHILL JOURNEY . . . When I made the decision in the Fall of 2016, I didn't know the first thing about how to make a podcast. I watched a few tutorials on YouTube, borrowed a USB mic from a friend, and recorded the demo episode of "Fly Home Birdie" using Garageband on my Mac. Then I spent months researching & playing around with recording. I watched more free tutorials on podcasting, with Pat Flynn, Cliff Ravenscraft, & Jessica Kupferman. I recorded some songs and intros. I signed up for a course with John Lee Dumas and I enlisted the help of a local musician named Kris Rogers to record the jingles. I climbed up the podcasting hill inch by inch.

      Some parts of the journey were steeper than others. But with every success, I gained more confidence, felt more motivated. Within a year, I went from no knowledge to successfully recorded 48 episodes of Story Spectacular. I didn't have to go back to school. I got to learn about podcasting online and recording a demo for free before I decided to invest any money. I still have plenty of climbing to do but I am now a podcaster. If I can learn something new than so can you! What do you say? Do YOU think you can?
