In today’s episode we have the privilege of speaking with Jeff Brown. With over 26 years of broadcasting experience, Jeff has a ton of history in the field and drops a ton of knowledge on us. He’s also the founder of Podcaster Academy and we get deep into why he created this incredibly useful resource. With a voice tailor-made for radio, Jeff is an engaging, insightful and funny guest. The show includes a Miley Cyrus reference, and a touching moment with a caller contemplating suicide back during his radio days.
