Women in Comedy Darlings! Getting Ready For Our Panel Discussion
Stories from the Biggest Voices on the Web.
We learned so much about podcasting today: from creating content to distribution/marketing-all our panelists had great insight.
- The Sideshow Network told us podcasts are portable & convenient.
- Jamie Denbo from Earwolf’s Ronna & Beverly says podcasts are put out by fairies in the internet.
- Alison Rosen’s partnership with Carolla Digital provides opportunity for cross promotion.
- Overall, the value you get out of podcasting isn’t necessarily money. Gaining audience, maintaining a place to continue doing material.
