It doesn’t matter how many mistakes you make and how many times you fail. If you’re persistent and passionate about your direction, you’ll get where you want to go.
On today’s episode I talk to the podcast intro master, Ian Sturgeon. Ian comes from a background of working his way through live radio and eventually ending up in professional audio production. If you’ve listened to a radio station in the last 10 years in the US, you would have heard a music bed or clip that was created by Ian…Pretty awesome right?
Through the years Ian has been honing his skills to ultimately service the podcasting industry by creating a company focused on producing quality podcast intro’s and outro’s called Intro Machine.
You can head over to Intro Machine and check out some useful tools and tips that Ian has made available to the public as he is passionate about raising the show quality in the podcasting realm.
