Webinar for podcasters


Wednesday, July 29, 2022
7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. 

Over the last 10 years, Rob Southgate has executive produced (and launched) over 125 different podcasts for his podcast network.  Outside of his network, he has consulted and advised on the marketing and launching of many more.  When he started, getting truthful, actionable information was difficult at best. He had to filter through misinformation and bad advice to not only launch his first shows, but to build his podcast network as a competitive business.

Today, there a lot of resources out there, from podcasts to books to YouTube videos, that give advice about launching a podcast.  It’s a lot to sift through and knowing what work will actually can be tricky.

Rob started The Podcast Profs to help experienced podcasters with their social media and digital marketing.  While reaching out to the members of Chicago Podcasters Unite (one of the Facebook groups he is admin for), he found that there were many members who had questions about how to get started, let alone how to market their podcast.  As a result, Rob is offering this webinar as part of The Podcast Profs Masterclass Series.   Rob wants to be that person that he needed 10 years ago who would answer his questions and give straight forward advice based on real experience.

“I get it, you are super hyped to get going and just want to know how to start your podcast today… like now. I was the same way. My wife and I jumped in and recorded our first episode without having a clue about anything. In fact, I think we named the show after we hit record.
What would have helped is a simple breakdown of the steps I would need to go from two idiots on a couch talking into a recorder that no one will ever here, to two idiots on a couch making a podcast that can be enjoyed by people all over the world. For this webinar, I am laying out the  steps you need to launch your first podcast the right way.”

On June 29th, you can participate in the Getting Started Masterclass from the comfort of your own home. Rob Southgate, founder of,, Southgate Media Group, and the admin of Chicago Podcasters Unite, will be teaching this class live online over Zoom to help you learn how to launch your podcaster easily and correctly so that you can be set up for success. You will be able to ask questions and interact during an AMA at the end of the session.  Plus, the chat will be open so Rob can address questions as they come up.
