“It’s our responsibility to be honest about what we talk about. To some extent, we’re all influencers to somebody else and people are listening to us. And if people are listening to what we have to say and if you’re spouting this stuff that’s garbage and not realistic, you can influence somebody to make a poor decision in their life.” (07:42)

“We want to be thought of and associated as a premier content creator.” (18:57)

“We believe very heavily that private podcasting is the future of where our company is going and, I think, a big part of the industry is expanding to.” (24:05)

“If you know the value of yourself and the show and the people that you’re approaching about sponsorship, you’ll have a much easier job of selling sponsorship.” (32:01)

“With the background at Podcast Motor, we’ve been working with content creators a lot. One of the simple things we’ve done is brought on a producer in-house. We’ve become a small professional services arm that does editing and production. And now we have a creative person that works with customers and that’s the person who’s creating the show for us.” (32:55)

“That’s one of the coolest things about this space is that so many people are willing to hop on a call just to chat and help you with things.” (42:33)
