This week we talk with Dave Cummings, The current mastermind and showrunner of a fantastic podcast called "The No Sleep Podcast." If you're into storytelling and a little bit of Theater of the Mind...then this episode is a no brainer. Lots of things discussed in this weeks interview. Scheduling, Marketing and building a method of payment for your podcast. If you've not heard of this show, I urge you to go check it out. It's got a ton of production value, it's creative and I for one think it's great!
Also on the show, my 7 Days a Geek co-host, Jer A.K.A. McBlizzard (or Bibbles for those who can't say it right) joins the show to chat inbetween segments. Unfortunatly there is no "How has podcasting changed your life" but we do have a fantastic review of the Revolutions podcast from our very own @PodcastSquared.
As always, thanks so much for listening. Please share the show via your social media outlets!

Hey there podcasters! If you're looking for a cool new way for your listeners to help support you, then this episode is for you! Patreon is a fairly new website that works kind of like Kickstarter but it's for ongoing support. Patreons can help by supporting your podcast monthly or per episodes. There are several ways your listener can show support as well as cool methods for you to use to show yours as well.
My apologies for being away, life has taken me away... doesn't look like that's going to change anytime soon but I'll still muster the strenght to release an episode when I can. Thanks for listening, thank you for all the positive words about the show! It's so nice to hear that it's actually helping new podcasters as well as those that have been doing it for awhile. It keeps me going! Please share this show with all of your podcasting friends!

Dave Jackson, host of The School of Podcasting stops by the show to talk all things podcasting. Dave has been podcasting for 10 years...no...9 years. (Right Dave?:-) He has himself a great podcast, one that I myself have become a fan of. If you like shows about podcasting and you aren't listening to his...well then I'm betting after you listen to this here episode, you'll head on over to iTunes and give his show a click on the subscribe button. He runs a fun, informative podcast and I can't say enough good things about it!
