Good, Good, Good Advice for Recording Interview Guests and Co-Hosts


This episode outlines the best practices for recording good audio for yourself, your guest, and your co-host(s). And yes, Jerod Morris and Jon Nastor have addressed this topic before, but never quite like this …

This week’s episode begins with a callback to last week, as Jerod notes a massive bit of irony that came out of the episode about when to use scripts (and when not to).

Then Jerod and Jon dive into this week’s main topic, prefacing it by explaining how it seems like they’ve been getting an inordinate amount of questions about this lately.

How to Develop a Six-Figure Side Gig


In this episode of Youpreneur.FM, host Chris Ducker sits down and talks with Dr. Mark Costes as they dive into how he came from being a burned-out entrepreneur to sharing the struggles and strategies he’s come across while growing his six-figure side gig.

Dr. Mark Costes is an entrepreneur and dentist combined; by the age of 33, he had built six successful practices and was coaching other dentists to do the same.

Sonia Simone on How a Podcast Fits Into a Content Marketing Strategy


There are not one but two renowned Defenders of Humanity on this week’s episode of The Showrunner. Sonia Simone, Chief Content Officer for Rainmaker Digital, joins Jerod Morris and Jonny Nastor to discuss how your podcast can (and should) fit into your overall content marketing mix.

The timing of Sonia’s visit is not a coincidence. With Authority getting ready to shut its doors to new members next Wednesday (September 30, 2015), the timing for her visit could not be more perfect.

It gave Jerod and Jonny a chance to ask her many of the questions that you all ask them so often, but that she is better qualified to answer. It also gives them a chance to alert you to this final chance you have to join Authority at the best price it will ever be offered for — since the price will be higher once it reopens again in 2016.
