Our Story

My name's Jo, and I make podcasting easy for everyone.

Podcasting Unpacked was born out of a mission to help as many people as possible to launch a podcast and share their message with the world. Your voice matters. Your input matters. You have something inside you that you simply have to share. You can't not share it.

And if you want to do that via the power of audio, Podcasting Unpacked is here to demystify and unpack the process into manageable, step by step chunks.


No fluff, no faff, just good, honest, actionable, spade-is-a-spade advice.

What Our Students Have to Say

Jo has helped at every stage since starting my podcast in 2018 and her support has helped me grow from a beginner, to an established podcast host with four series and sponsorship from a huge charity. Her knowledge is extensive and yet easily digestible for newbies. She's approachable, and always at the other end of en email when I need her. Not only is she a podcasting genius, she's also brilliant fun to work with and I would encourage everyone dreaming of starting a podcast to seek out Jo's help.
Jo’s advice was invaluable when I launched my podcast. She helped advise on not only the tech and the editing but also on the overall strategy of a podcast launch. She was instrumental in the success of the launch of the Make it British Podcast, which went straight into the Top 10 UK business podcasts in its first week.

Without Jo I wouldn't have a podcast today. She's helped and guided me through the process and encouraged me every step of the way. The tools in this programme simplify getting your podcast out there. I'm embarrassed that I had a podcast page on my website saying 'coming soon' for almost two years. Working with Jo got my podcast live within a couple of weeks. And I now have people asking to come on and be interviewed.
Jo is a podcasting genius. There is literally nothing she doesn't know. She responds quickly and explains things really clearly whether it is tech, strategy or smaller things that I just don't know. Her door is always open and she gets straight to the point that you need to know without mixing it up in fluff you don't want or need. She really understands the challenges entrepreneurs face in podcasting and simplifies it all. The Inside Out Entrepreneur Podcast would not have over 100 reviews and 160+ 5 star rankings without Jo's help.
