The Podcast Host
Colin is a podcaster, a founder, a speaker and a PhD in online learning.
Since 2007, he's been teaching entrepreneurs and educators how to grow an audience through content, particularly with podcasting. His company, The Podcast Host, teaches businesses how to nurture trust through the combined power of quality and consistency, and how podcasting, blogging and video work together to foster fanatical fans.
He and his team run a network of shows, from Podcraft to Hostile Worlds. They teach how to Podcast inside the Podcast Host Academy, and provide the tools to do it in the form of Alitu, the original podcast maker app. Outside work, you can usually find him on the nearest mountain biking trail, or vainly attempting to wrangle his kids on an ill-fated camping trip.

Janet Murray launched her podcast back in 2015. With over one million downloads, The Janet Murray Show frequently tops the UK Apple Podcasts charts for business & marketing. It is currently number 1 in the Chartable marketing podcasts.
Janet's podcast has been instrumental in helping her build a large and engaged online audience. This has allowed her to build a multi-six figures business selling online courses and coaching, including her popular Build Your Online Audience Programme. It also helps her sell out her live events and a physical product - the 2020 Social Media Diary & Planner.
Janet believes the intimacy of podcasting - the fact you're quite literally in someone's earbuds - helps you build a closer relationship with prospective clients/customers. Which is why it can be such an effective way to attract leads and sales for your business.
