Is all Podcast advice applicable to your goals in podcasting? Be careful about who you are getting your advice from. Do they have an agenda? (most do) Do they match YOUR goals in podcasting? Not everyone wants advertisers. A lot of advice given on the Facebook groups is not applicable to the person sitting next to the water heater in a basement studio.
This is my little rant/brain dump on the subject of advice.
Be sure to listen to the last episode with Paul Culligan as well.
