What's special about Power-Up Podcasting®
Why should you choose Power-Up Podcast over other learn-to-podcast courses? Here's Pat with what makes this course special.
Now With Live Q&A Sessions and Professional Support
With the Power-Up Podcasting Bootcamp, we combine our best-selling course with live, direct support from Team SPI every week for eight weeks.
Working through an online course can be a lonely experience, which is why we’ve created this guided Bootcamp experience. Each week, the SPI Team will lead you through the curriculum as well as host two live sessions to support your podcasting journey.
We’ll help you stay on track to finish the course while also offering you live support through expert question and answer sessions, coworking sessions, and more.
You’ll get to connect with your fellow students as you collaborate in your own Power-Up Podcasting discussion forum. You will ask questions, share your progress, support each other through roadblocks, celebrate wins, and get to the finish line all in just eight weeks.
