RED 044: Behind The Scenes of RED Podcast

Listen to the Episode Below (00:25:54)

Feature-image44We’ve had a lot of questions about how we do things here… How we come up with episode ideas, how we record, how we publish, and how we get so many reviews and downloads.

This episode explains all of this and more. You’ll hear our exact workflow and “system” that lets us outline, record, produce, distribute, and market multiple episodes each week.

How everything gets done. That’s what we talk about on this episode of RED Podcast…
