Starting a podcast could
change your life…

Seriously!

It can expand your network, opening doors for your career or sparking a new lifelong friendship. It can grow your business, driving sales, partnerships, and customer loyalty. It can create change in the world, like solving a cold case to bring justice or sharing an inspiring story that brings hope to people.

I've seen the life-changing power of podcasts first-hand.

Launching your first podcast is scary.

There's a problem

Does this sound familiar?

You're procrastinating
You’re afraid of what others will say
You’re overwhelmed by the technical details
You’re hungry for a community to be inspired

Or maybe you already tried to start one...

The audio quality sounded bad
The conversation lacked a clear purpose
You didn't know how to market it
Nobody showed up to listen

Hey, I’m Jacob Bozarth.

I’ve been a full-time podcast professional for the last 10+ years, executive producer of two #1 podcasts, and have been recording and editing since 2005.

Back in 2005 I transformed my parent's bedroom into a studio and downloaded Audacity on the family desktop using Windows 99 and dial up internet.

It was slow, and at times frustrating, trying to figure everything out for myself. But I grew to love it, and my newfound passion led me to Middle Tennessee State University where I earned a degree in recording and production.

In 2014 I started a podcast production agency that has worked with thousands of podcasters - including 16 number-one shows in all of Apple, and brands like Honda, Amazon, Twitter, and Salesforce.

Over the past 10 years, I’ve experienced the art of podcasting from many different angles. I’ve produced two hit true crime podcasts, Culpable and Up and Vanished, worked with hundreds of hobbyists to launch their passion project; and helped businesses grow their audiences and drive sales through podcasts.

Podcast Primer is where I’m pulling back the curtain after 10+ years on my step-by-step process to launch a successful show.
