Learn to podcast the smart way
With Pat Flynn
So you'd like to start a podcast? Awesome! Starting a podcast is one of the best ways to build an audience and grow your business (even from scratch), but the process for getting started can feel daunting.
What equipment and software should you use? How do you land interviews with big-name guests? How do you get your show loaded into Apple Podcasts? And even after your show goes live, how are you going to make sure people find it?
I'm going to help you cut through the confusion—to not only learn how to properly plan and launch your podcast, but make sure it gets found, too.
In Power-Up Podcasting®, I'll walk you step-by-step through the entire process of launching a great podcast. With high-quality videos (that aren't too long) and examples along the way, you'll have your new podcast up and running in no time, so you can start growing and delighting your audience.
Your audience is waiting to hear from you.
Here's what you'll learn in Power-Up Podcasting®

How this course sets you up for success
Starting a podcast is hard work, but you're not alone
I know only too well how intimidating it can be to start a podcast when you haven't done it before. It took me a year and a half from when I first announced that I was starting my podcast until I actually launched it.
I got stuck—a little bit stuck with the technical steps, but mostly? I was scared. I was scared of sounding foolish. I was scared I was doing it wrong.
I don't want you to feel that way. I want you to be excited that you're going to start a podcast!
A big part of feeling excited, rather than scared, is knowing you have a place to go when you have questions or you need a little encouragement. Power-Up Podcasting® has built-in ways for you to get help, whether you're looking for feedback on your podcast logo, stuck with an editing problem, or you just need a little pep-talk before your big launch.
That's why I've set up two ways for you to get support:
Weekly office hours with Pat Flynn
Sometimes you just need to ask the teacher a question. That's why I host a weekly Zoom call that's only available to course students. Get your questions answered and learn from the questions of the other SPI course students. The last four call replays are available inside the course, .
Access to the private SPI Academy Circle community
Can't wait until office hours? Ask your question inside the SPI Academy!
The SPI Academy is our private student community—the place where you can ask questions when you're stuck and share ideas to get honest feedback from other entrepreneurs like you. We also offer regular events with other SPI team members.
The Academy is hosted on the Circle platform and moderated by Team SPI; this is not a Facebook free-for-all. You'll find instructions inside the course for how to join using your course login.
Don't take my word for it
Real Power-Up Podcasting® students share their experiences with the course and how it has benefitted their businesses (and even changed their lives).
I wanted to have a bigger impact.
I always loved working with my mentees and I wanted to do that on a bigger scale...I knew a podcast was the way to do that but I had no clue how to get started...literally within a month, The Epic Success Podcast with Dr. Shannon Irvine is live!...It's by far the best course I've ever taken."
— Dr. Shannon Irvine
Even in my 60s, I went for it, because Pat showed me it's doable,
and I don't believe that there's anything you can pay for that will give you the feeling I'm experiencing myself, doing my show. Nothing. There's no amount of money, because this feeling comes from what I'm already getting back, and I've only just gotten started."
— Dr. Barbara A. Cohen, Ph.D., Host of Harness Your ADHD Power
These are real students, just like you. They knew they had a message they wanted to share with a larger audience—just like you do. Power-Up Podcasting® helped them start their podcast to share that message. Let it help you, too.
