What is a Podcast? It is audio or video shows, that when you subscribe to them, are automatically updated on your Computer, Smartphones, iPads, Tablets, and/or iPods. Think of them as free radio or TV shows which you deliver Spam-Free! directly to your audience every time you produce one.

Podcasting is bigger than you think. When we survey people who listen to free, commercial-free audio Podcasts at least once a month: we discover an interesting fact: Online Radio beats AM/FM Radio, streaming audio, CD's, TV Music channels, & Sirius

"Power Podcasting Rocks!" 

"Scott is friendly and easy to follow. He clearly knows his stuff. All the tools are here, and laid out in easy way. I think it is a great course! I was shocked at how popular this is. Great marketing tool that I overlooked. Great education." ~ Dan Kobelt 

If you look at the number of people listening to these free shows monthly, they are as popular as Twitter with 39 mIllion listeners, even if it doesn't get the same 'Love'. 

But instead of communicating in impersonal 150 character Tweets, with Power Podcasting, you get right into the head of your target market for as long as they let  you. 

They are portable — and because of this, they are more personal.   

Imagine whispering into the ears of your ideal customers every week... building strong relationships, trust and connections. But instead of One-to-One, Power Podcasting is One-to-Many! Our students know that Podcasting is relationship building in the sales process, and not the time to go for the hard close. 

These listeners are higher income earners. They listen daily to an hour and forty minutes more audio than the average American consumer. They are dedicated to continual learning, so just imagine what happens when your show is available on new cars all over the world... 

Power Podcasting "allows you to convey your personality in a much stronger way than is possible through the written word. That clarity in your message is seen and felt through your actions (on video) and the tone of your voice..." according to Chris Ducker, Author of #1 Bestseller 'Virtual Freedom'. 

When you claim your seat in this course, you'll have permanent online access to watch the course 24/7, and there's a Q&A discussion section in each lecture, where you can post questions - and I'll answer them personally! 

By following the short, simple, easy-to-follow lectures, you will be able to work through the process of setting up your show and publishing your first episode quickly. 

The course was designed to accomplish one goal: Start a  Podcast as fast as possible. I recommend watching the first 6 sections in their entirety. There are PDF workbooks included for you to use to clarify your topic, title, descriptions, intro and extros. 

For 'Type A' personalities, there is a "Fast Track" Lecture (Section One, Lecture #6), in which if you already have a finished MP3 or MP4 file, reveals which lectures to watch so that after following only 33 minutes of video, you will have your show live and into iTunes. In other words, you can be up and running in under an hour. 

The technical processes of  are only one aspect of successful Podcasting. Walk through real life examples of producing a live show, discover how to use your voice effectively to move your audience, uncover how to repurpose content for your podcast that you may already be doing, and how to do it FAST!   

Power Podcasting "will grow your email list, your audience, your influence and your bank account." Amy Porterfield of "Tweet This" and former Social Media Maven for social media for the likes of Harley Davidson & Tony Robbins. 

Podcasts are growing rapidly, and thanks to CarPlay, Google Play and Apps, continue strong growth for years to come. It is just past the 'Early Adopter' stage and has huge potential moving forward. Don't miss out on the low-competition, high-demand opportunities that your fellow Power Podcasters are enjoying. 

"Great content that kept my attention" 

"Scott is obviously very knowledgeable, experienced and shares great content. I am a beginner and he has inspired me to believe that even I can do this. Also, I find some of the other courses very boring and they lose me. This one doesn't. Scott makes it entertaining, easy and fun to learn." ~ Marion Baker

I bought it at a significant discount, but the course is from 2014 and in large part discusses platforms and technology. Much of this information and specific advice (likely most of it) is thus outdated.
February 13, 2022
You have a straightforward style and your course has good structure. Most likely, however, rank beginners might get lost with some of the jargon.
December 18, 2021
Pretty good course! I've learned a lot about how to do a podcast. Most of the videos are from 2014, so some stuff is out of date (using Google+, which was shut down in 2019), but on the whole I definitely recommend the course to anyone who wants to start a podcast.
September 11, 2021
Always wanted to start my own podcast, but wasn't sure what direction to take. I'm hoping this course will get me a little more confident in giving it a shot.
August 26, 2021
Tv production background, looking to to get into podcasting here in South Africa, seems so far like this is the right course!
August 24, 2021
There's a lot of good content in this course which can serve as a good beginners to intermediate guide. However I do think it needs updating. There's some repetition of lectures which I felt unnecessary. I'd like to see the lectures on social media updated because a lot has changed since this was recorded. Currently they seemed to predominantly focus on Google Plus, which was shut down for consumers in April 2091. This lecture was repeated more than once. I also think lectures on equipment could be updated. I don't think we need a full lecture on a selfie stick, but we may need lectures on things like Facebook Lives and how to get the best audio on a cell whilst outside. Finally Scott mentions that if you contact him via his website he will get back to you. I have messaged him with questions about equipment and I've yet to hear back from him.
August 17, 2021
I bought this course and recently have a fast enough connnection to properly enjoy it! I'm inside the Introduction section and didn't realize it will be easier than I thought. My personality can really shine through what I share!
June 7, 2021
I like the instructor. He has a very calm and soothing demeanor but not boring. He seems very knowledgeable about what he is teaching. He makes the instruction very clear and practical.
January 24, 2021
This course needs to be updated -- it was recorded in 2016 (per Lesson 54), so some info is outdated.
January 4, 2021
I believe it's going to give me an overall view of what goes into a successful podcast but the details or topics is really up to me and that's the creative and exciting part of this learning journey.
March 15, 2019
At first, I was a little unsure of this class, as there seemed to be a bit of "get to the point" type of reaction. In the end, I realized that my 12+ years as a blogger, the core concepts are the same. I've since taken a few other courses, and have to say Scott Paton is truly an amazing teacher. Yes, there were some things that I just didn't agree with, but as teachers go, he's very responsive, ACTUALLY DOES ANSWER HIS EMAILS (which is just lovely) in a reasonable matter. Also when you question certain aspects, he actually will stand his ground and defend his reasons. Lastly his site "" really has some powerful tools... just takes a little bit of time getting used to it, and that's also totally covered in the course. You'll learn how to Podcast with Scott's class. You'll get a great refresher, even if you know how... Scott covers every aspect! He's made me a fan!
March 7, 2019
A lot of great information for any person Podcasting or just starting out. Lots of tips and help tools to make your Podcast successful and relevant. I appreciate Scott putting together this course, it helped me find direction and I am ready to get started!
March 6, 2019
so far it is very informative about the course and expectations that are to come out of continuing the lessons.
February 22, 2019
This class delivers what it advertises based on my experience. Best podcasting course on udemy. 100% recommended.
February 8, 2019
The course thus far appears to be giving a lot of filler insignificant information i.e. the instructures personal experience [can be summed up in one video not multiple] a lot of promotional material) At this point seven or eight videos in, the content should be about producing the equiptment, segmentation, approaches, producing the podcast, getting reviews and marketing your podcast etc. It may get into it latter in the course, however its simply too many preliminary videos with littl einformation.
