Announcing WPCast.fm – The Professional WordPress Podcast

David Hehenberger June 18, 2014

I love podcasts. Some of my current favorites are:

(I’ve linked to some of my favorite recent episodes above.)

I’ve been thinking about starting a podcast for a while – I even bought a USB mic back in 2012 so I could record podcasts. One of the biggest obstacles holding me back from launching was not having a co-host. I’m tired of interview podcasts – you’ll notice that the only interview podcast that made it to above list is ‘This Week in Startups’ (Jason gets some of the most interesting and successful founders on his show).

Why now?

Since I’ve been transitioning to building & selling WordPress plugins at fatcat apps I’ve decided to do more content marketing and get more involved with the WordPress community. I’ve noticed that I trust people that regularly produce content. For example, when Pippin launched his AffiliateWP (affiliate link here) plugin, I bought it immediately without even considering the alternatives.

I believe that producing quality content will help set fatcat apps apart from random plugin shops competing on price on Code Canyon.

My co-host

Doug Yuen
from EfficientWP and I have been friends for a long time and are also on the same mastermind call. Doug is a smart guy, knows a ton about WP and runs a WP-related business. Both of us wanted to start podcasts, so joining forces made a lot of sense.

The topic

wpcast.fmOur podcast is called “WPCast.fm – The Professional WordPress Podcast”. We’ll be talking about all things relevant to people using WordPress in a professional environment. It should be interesting to:

We’ve published three episodes so far:

  1. HOW TO BE A BETTER WORDPRESS CONSULTANT
  2. HOW TO HIRE GREAT SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS
  3. HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF WORDCAMPS OR OTHER CONFERENCES

I’d be super happy if you’d subscribe and/or leave us a review on iTunes. You can also leave a comment over at WPCast.fm

Talk soon,

David
