Really Remote Podcasting with Christy Haussler & Riverside.fm

This week’s episode was filmed in Hawaii AND a cornfield. Oh Marcus! Join us as we put riverside.fm to the test with a really great conversation with Christy Haussler of Team Podcast. She joined us from beautiful Hawaii and the view did not disappoint, complete with actual goats. We talked all things shop, how to create a successful podcast editing business, how to monetize your podcast, why mentors and masterminds are important to any successful business and where to get started if you want to level up your podcast.

Christy is the Founder of Team Podcast, a full service podcast production company. She’s helped almost 250 podcasters over the past 8 years, and now she’s on a mission to help podcasters monetize.

Christy knows the power of podcasting to change lives because it changed hers. When Christy started podcasting almost 10 years ago, she was working a full time job and driving 2 hours each way to work. Since going all in on podcasting, she’s been able to move to an island and live the life of her dreams. Christy also has a podcast called Podcast Monetization Secrets to share her knowledge about marketing and monetization.
