    Hi! We are brand new podcasters – just launched our trailer yesterday – so we are here to learn EVERYTHING. There are two of us, Megan and Wendy, and and we’ve owned Long Story Short, which is a YouTube channel and website for five years, and now we’re taking the next step (five years late, maybe!) https://www.meganandwendy.com/welcome-to-long-story-short-the-podcast/

    Hey guys! I started my show, Run Lift Mom, in early 2019 after falling in love with podcasting as an advertising girl (anyone know Sunny Gault? I worked for her first network!) back in 2014-15.

    Being a creator is much different than selling the ads (!) but I’ve found my stride on the social media side.

    I’m dropping a photo of the 4 reasons I can typically be found typing up show notes on the treadmill or hiding in a closet for recording. They’re 6, 5, 5, and 5 now but this was our best Halloween showing!

      OMGosh. That’s the cutest thing ever. Look at them!

      And yep, selling ads is different than doing the podcasting thing 😉

      Although, selling ads is also a skill most podcasters are missing! And OMGOSH yes, I know Sunny!!!!

    Hellooo! I feel like I’ve ticked off a whole bunch of boxes for my podcast except actually doing it. Was anyone else gripped by fear and overwhelm to just begin? Ugh. Anywho, my podcast will be called My Granddaughter’s Planet. It’s an interview style podcast with people from all over the world who are coming up with some really cool ideas on making this world a better place. Most of who are in line with areas of the sustainable development goals put forth by the UN. I’m tired of doom and gloom planet reporting. I think people should get to see and hear about all the really amazing things that people are doing. For instance (this is a dream guest/quest for sometime down the road) did you know that there is a group of people planting trees across the width of Africa in order to assist in regeneration of the regions’ food, land, and climate? The impact of which could change the economics of the entire continent! Sounds nerdy, but it gives me hope that my granddaughter will get to see some really cool things in her lifetime.

      Welcome, Nikki!!!! When I 1st started. I wasn’t gripped with fear because I didn’t know what I was getting into – BUT with every show I’ve started since then…yes. For. Sure.

      It feels insanely vulnerable.

      That said, I do feel it’s totally a personal feeling vs reality? If that makes sense 😬

      You will be fine!!!

      LOOOOOVE the idea and name of your show.

      I think holding the vision of the show close to you and leading with that will help you hold steady when the fear arises – you’re doing this for something much bigger than yourself!

      Hey Nikki!! Love love love your podcast idea — I very much feel the same way as you about the “doom and gloom” around sustainability reporting as a sustainability gal, and am also needing a greater variety in style of reporting and general solutions for my mental health as well. I’m doing something in a similar thread but more about individuals taking action on their individual purpose as a vehicle for healing & liberation (and creating sustainability within their desired communities in various ways). I’m so looking forward to seeing what you create!

    Hi hi all!

    Total newbie here – looks like I’m in good company. 😅

    I’m co-own a doula business in Madison, WI and am a childbirth/newborn care educator w/an online course (Lumos Birth + Baby). I’ve been working professionally with families since 2004, and have been working with my business partner Alli on our current ventures since 2016.

    We are looking to launch a podcast late 2020 or early 2021. 🤞🏼 It’ll be 75% pregnancy/birth/parenting and 25% other – or at least that is the current gut feeling.

    No name yet. We are aiming do it magazine-style, one main-ish topic and a few different ways of coming at it; and we’d like to batch and release in series w/6-8 topics all related to one other.

    I grew up in Bad River, an Ojibwe reservation in northern WI on the shores of Lake Superior. Part of our goal with our business is to create opportunities to be more flexible so my business partner can go back to school and I can work from the northwoods and get closer to home.

    I have two book-end kiddos – my big was supposed to be off to college this year but applied for and was granted a gap year, my little is 3 next week.

    I love quilting, beadwork, getting out into the woods, and good coffee.

    I love learning in community – and have appreciated the ShePodcasts FB group for learning and am excited to be in an even smaller cohort here.

    Yay!

    Hi all!

    I’m Karen Jackson, the host and producer of “A Long Look” a podcast about a better way to experience art. Most people think they have to see everything when they visit museums, taking only a few seconds to look at each work. But if you slow down to look at just a few, it can be eye-opening! https://alonglook-slowart.com

    I came to podcasting after a long career as a graphic designer and haven’t looked back! She Podcasts has been a big part of my development, so for all you new people, welcome. This group has been amazingly supportive and helpful.

    Hey all, I started podcasting in late 2018 completely thanks to Jessica. I used to co-host the (ill-fated) Unbelievably Stupid Podcast (yup, that was the name 🤣), and then I launched my current podcast–Melon Buffet–in 2019 with one of my best friends (she’s located in Edinburgh, Scotland). We are just two fan girls who love to talk about our favorite British TV show (Taskmaster), as well as the lives are careers of the actors and comedians involved with the show, and we sprinkle in a bit about our own lives and whatever other tangents and shenanigans we go off on. I keep threatening to start another podcast, and a YouTube channel, but they haven’t materialized yet. Looking forward to making connections and getting inspired here.

    I am about to re-launch a revised version of my podcast from earlier this year. I lost everything after a nightmare migration thing. I was pretty mad at the time, but I know this was a blessing.

    I know so so much more now.

    I am more organized.

    I have a lot more content.

    🥳 so now time to plan batch recording🥳

    Looking reuniting with any of the amazing women I met at PM 19 😉

I just stated my third season for Halloween calling it the Season of Fear lol. I started this podcast as a way to let my creative mind flow and after a year and a half I am still at. So the plan is take it to the next level and see what happens. I not only want to grow this podcast but would like to work more in the podcasting world and make some new connections. So happy to be here.

    Hi, I’m Deb. My podcast launches in a couple of days (the 10th)…I’m a full-time writer of both fiction (over 10 years/multiple pen names) and after a COVID pivot, business articles (freelance work).

    I have a writing website that lets me play with my creative side while I’m working. It’s called Writing Smarter. The podcast is Writing Smarter Radio (I know it’s not radio, but I love the alliteration, so there’s that…word geek that I am.)

    I’m in my 50’s, a Jersey girl, and doing my thing the best I’m able. Simple, girl-next-door vibe…and the pod/website is focused on helping new fiction writers with story planning and putting the pieces together without the overwhelm.

    The Women’s Sanctuary is based on my IRL work with women in counseling and sacred practice. The podcast is a mix of solo episodes where I talk about a topic and interviews with amazing women.
    My tag line is, “tending the soul of women and the rise of the Sacred Feminine.” I’m having so much fun with it and am reeeeaaaaally happy for this group to help me grow the show and my skills!

    We started the show back in 2017ish as a weekly news show that morphed into what it is today with over 600 episodes.

    I didn’t start out as an editor, but at the end of 2018 I made a goal for myself to teach myself how to do editing so I could take some of the work off of our host/ex producer’s plate. And I found my calling.

    Hello, my name is Suzanne and I am the host of the Sit Down With Suzanne podcast. What can I say, call me crazy but I love podcasting. I am about to start season two next week. I have learned a lot along the way but one of the most important things I can tell someone is this, your podcast is a reflection of you and while you should learn from others, don’t create yours exactly like someone else’s no matter how much you admire them.

    In season two I am looking to grow my podcast base, and getting sponsors and affiliates but the one thing that won’t change is that it will still be 100% authentically Suzanne, who is perfectly okay with being perfectly imperfect. Looking forward to some great dialogue with this group.

    After being a guest on a number of podcasts over the past few years, I finally pulled the trigger in May and launched The Driven Woman Podcast. I met Jess and Elsie at Podcast Movement in Orlando last year but I was still dicking around and ‘planning to launch.” My goal for season 1 was to create systems and consistency. I just published episode #22 and am about to hit 4k downloads, so I’m mapping out Season 2, to start in November. My favorite topic is all things related to drive, ambition, and motivation in women, and all the obstacles that get in its way. I’m a coach and mentor for entrepreneurs, creatives, and professionals who are driven but distracted. So happy to be here for the inspiration, information, and community!

    Hello everyone!! I’m Dr. Annise Mabry and in 2013, I created Back2Us Radio, the first LGBTQ podcast network. I use to do a weekly Sunday show with my best friend called the Back2Us Show and that show was the foundation for us creating the podcast network.

    We went strong for almost 3 years and over 200 episodes with 13 hosts on air podcasting 7 days per week. In 2015, the podcast network was syndicated by Voice Republic. I launched the Dr. Annise Mabry Foundation in 2016 and rolled the podcast network under the foundation. When Sharon and I launched the podcast network, we had two rules (1) podcast airtime would always be free for anyone who identified as LGBTQ who was trying to launch a podcast; and, (2) we would not sell ads or promote other products.

    Eventually Sharon fell in love and got married–as did the other hosts on the network and they stopped podcasting. I tried to podcast alone for a while but I’m just not that person. I need a partner.

    So that’s why I joined #theSuperSquad. Maybe there’s someone else out there who is looking to launch a podcast but wants a partner.

    That’s my backstory. Now a fun fact about the picture below…I was a 2019 Atlanta Pride Grand Marshal AND the first She Podcast conference was held in Atlanta on Pride Weekend so I got to be a grand marshal and present at the conference.

      Hi there! I am not sure if this is the right fit…and this is a bit abrupt but I have a podcast idea that I so want to do with a partner…
      It may or may not be a good fit but I had to start the conversation.
      So happy to meet you in any case.
      Looking forward to learning from your experience.

          Hi! It’s called People are Good. It’s a weekly podcast based on “testing the hypothesis that people are good”

              Holy Moly – Well, umm, I made a trailer and it’s already been approved on Apple…I just realized it needed more than “just me”
              I have been collecting stories that prove/question the idea that “people are good” or “people aren’t good”

              My premise, actually, is that black and white thinking is always toxic and people can do good or bad things based on their environment … and that, actually, we should tend our garden in such a way as to encourage good and discourage “bad” behaviour…

              I see the podcast as a dynamic series of conversations where that premise either grows in strength or changes or becomes something else as the series progresses…based on where the conversation meanders…

              I am new to podcasting but have been a writer-for-hire for decades…with a brief stint on a Japanese Variety television show…

              That’s my pitch…

    Hey there — I started my podcast, Wild and Precious Conversations, on March 1 this year.
    I am not sure how many people share this experience, but for me, this project (including a newsletter, courses, a website, bookshop, and apparently whatever else I think up) has opened me up to so many new experiences.

    The podcasting part has been really interesting. I said during a pre-interview with a guest/friend that I started the podcast as a way to explore my voice — to find my voice — and in that moment, it all made sense.

    I have reconnected to a slew of old friends/colleagues/peers in the mental health field, learned a ton, and gained a lot of confidence, even as my podcast itself still needs a *lot* of work before it becomes “professional”

    I’m also mom to 4 boys/men (16, 18, 20, 23) married to a brewmaster/brewery owner for a long, long time 🙂 We homeschooled for 12 years, so during that time, I had to be much, much more pragmatic about work. Now I can follow my passion a bit more.

    That said, I do look forward to making money some day (soon?!?)
    Excited to be here. Looking forward to learning.

    My project is based here: underbel.li
    My newsletter/podcast is based here: https://underbelly.substack.com/

    Hi all! My name is Marilyn — I’m an embodiment and vitality coach. I’m starting my podcast (still in ideation!) about individual paths of purpose and ways they contribute to the sustainability of our planet from various facets. I studied global health and sustainability and have been through a largely spiritual mental health break / breakthrough so I’d also like to discuss that, different forms of self care and embodiment and my own personal journey through the world of American mental healthcare systems as well as different perspectives of shame, guilt, and “negative” emotions that we experience surrounding our mental wellness experience. So looking forward to connecting with all of you!

      Hi Marilyn — you and I are on the same page in a lot of ways. I’m a Chinese Medicine practitioner/ acupuncturist/ holistic health coach working at the confluence of health and personal development. I see the body as an ecosystem within the larger ecosystem of our culture and planet. My show, A Healthy Curiosity, explores being well in a busy world, with strategies from Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, and functional medicine, but also what gets in the way of our being well as women. My rallying cry is “embody self-respect” through our daily actions, honoring our yin, etc.

    I run a folklore podcast from the north east of England, and outside of the UK, few people have ever heard my accent before. I’m also a former ghost hunter, dark fantasy author, and marketing teacher. Funnily enough, most people think it’s the last one that makes me Mistress of the Dark Arts.

    One of these days, I will begin one of my in-person talks like this…

    Hi there! 👋 I’m Diana. Nice to be here with you all! I co-host a podcast on TV shows and Films📺Although, I’ve been podcasting since 2018, I feel like a newbie. Had no idea what we were doing and have been doing it all ourselves. I started with a co-host and we did about 33 episodes and she had to bow out. I was totally devastated. I felt like this podcast filled my soul! I took me a bit to find another friend who loved and appreciated TV shows and films as much as I did, but I found her and we’ve been doing it ever since. She has young children and her own business, so I carry the load of editing and getting it out there, but have a full time job and a family too, so it’s always about juggling!!! Like all other women! Anyway, I am here to connect with others and learn how to grow our audience, because seriously, I don’t know what I am doing and I want to learn!!! Thank you Elsie and Jess for creating this community!!

    Hi! I’m Rebecca-Anuwen, and I’ve been podcasting on and off for years.

    I started with an interview show.

    Then most recently I had a daily show called Re-Enchant Your Life – 10 minute episodes of daily inspiration.

    Daily went to 5 times a week, and then after 300+ shows I stopped.

    But my listens/downloads ket growing and growing!! And people kept asking when it was coming back…

    So now it’s back, twice a week with a slightly different format. I’m still focusing on the inspiration, but this time with an intuitive twist… I ask people to think of a question they want answering, and then by the end of the 10-ish min show, they’ll have the answer they need -from themselves, with the help of some divination.

    I want people to be able to trust themselves again, reconnect with their intuition, so that they can make better choices!

    Then I have an idea for an interview show where I want to interview witches, and people who practice folk magic, and who keep folklore alive – particularly those in the UK to start with.

    Phew that’s a lot… thanks for reading!

    Hey there! I’m Brodie Welch, a Licensed Acupuncturist, Chinese Medicine educator, and self-care strategist/ health consultant. My show, A Healthy Curiosity: on being well in a busy world, just passed the 200 episode mark. Part health, part personal-evolution, I explore health-optimizing and consciousness-evolving strategies rooted in the traditions of Chinese Medicine, yoga, and Ayurveda along with the cutting-edge research from functional medicine and neuroscience.

    Episodes run the gamut form deep dives into hormone balance, gut health, sleep issues, habit change, mindfulness, overcoming anxiety, depression; to addressing what gets in the way of us taking good care of ourselves: perfectionism, people-pleasing, big goals, habits and routines, chronic pain, overwork and overwhelm, boundaries, limiting beliefs, who we think we need to be in late-stage capitalism/patriarchy, etc.

    My message these days is about giving people (especially women) permission to take care of themselves, to Embody Self-respect through our daily actions.

    Every business coach in the world has told me to niche down. But I a generalist’s generalist, and my zone of genius is in paradigm blending, so the show has remained very broad in its focus.

    While I’ve produced the show darn near every week for over 4 years, I don’t put much effort at all into growing my audience. I’m looking forward to remedying that, and to connecting with y’all here in the SuperSquad.

But it feels like I am starting everything over from scratch. I went from a few thousand followers to a couple hundred. So it kinda feels like I am shouting into the void. Looking forward to getting things moving forward and making the best company and podcast I can.

    Hi! I’m Heidi. I have 2 podcast. The first is the Birth Story Podcast which is education through storytelling for preparing for birth. The second is with my friends Nikki and Alissa. We co-host Thanks, It’s The Trauma Podcast which is about a shared and unique trauma we experienced when our husbands came out to us as transgender women. Birth Story Podcast is growing like wild fire and I hope to learn more about how to maximize opportunities with it. With Thanks, It’s The Trauma-we would like help getting the word out so help provide solidarity for others who may be in a similar boat as well as provide affirming love and understanding for the transgender community.

      Hi Heidi! These both sound like great projects! Reading your description I had a thought; it might be more affirming for the transgender community to use the word “partner” rather than “husband”, as the latter is a very gender-specific word.

    I have been podcasting since 2006 and consider myself a longtime supporter of She Podcasts.

    I will describe my shows very briefly: Brain Science is focused on making neuroscience accessible to listeners of all backgrounds. I try to take a big picture approach to the mystery of how our brain makes us human. This includes questions like consciousness, how memory really works, and why we act the way we do.

    When I started in 2006 I actually launched two shows. The other show is called Books and Ideas and features guests from a wide variety of fields. I am proud that Hall of Famers Mur Lafferty, Elsie Escobar and Dr. Pamela Gay have appeared.

    My newest effort is Graying Rainbows: Coming Out LGBT+ Later in Life. This show has allowed me to tap into the power of storytelling in a much deeper way.

    The reason I joined the new Super Squad is because I want to support Elsie and Jess’s ongoing efforts to build a community for women in podcasting.

    Hello All – I’m slowly working my way through the site here, and signed up to try it out as a resource in addition to the other groups I’ve recently met through a podcast accelerator course. My podcast is really new, focused on women of color careerists and multi-hyphenates navigating the work world. I happen to be in the SF area, so a lot of women associated with tech but doing various roles, not just coders. My real goal is to build my empire of women to take over the senate and white house—just kidding! That’s my superheroine talking. I’m here to grow the show, learn from others, and relish in co-creating the future world with other women.

    Hi all!! I’m Vie (pronounced like the letter Vee) 🙂

    I’m a single mom and live in the beautiful mountains of NC.

    I am in the beginning stages of starting a podcast which I am either gonna call “The Magic of Selling” or “Selling is Sacred”. (opinions? 😄 )

    This will be a podcast to explore radical new understanding around money, value exchange and asking for and receiving support.

    Questions I will be exploring with guests will include… How can we trust in ourselves, each other, and in an abundant universe? What goes on in the energetics of a sale or exchange of value? What is right relationship and how do we practice what we preach from start to finish in a transformation-focused business?

    Part of this will include interviewing people who utilize different exchange structures such as the gift economy, sliding scales, pay what you can, and others, discussing the opportunities and challenges that people have experienced along the way implementing these various approaches and guiding philosophies. My great hope is that these discussions will help in freeing us to show up in alignment with our highest values as we offer our gifts and work in the world.


    My knees are shaking as I start out on this journey!! Happy to have found this lovely supportive space.

    I’m excited to be here!!

    Hey, I’m Marie. I work in Law Enforcement. I joined and lost all of my confidence and compared myself and my abilities to that of the men around me. Later, once I regained my confidence, I started Ordinary to Badass (blog and podcast). I realized it’s not an object, like a weapon, a motorcycle, or a leather jacket that makes you a Badass, it’s all about confidence and mindset.

    I’m currently 65 episodes in and loving it. Never could have pictured myself doing this.

    If anyone is starting out podcasting and struggling with tech reach out. I’ll help in any way possible because that was me lol.
