I had a really impromptu IG live talking about podcasting for beginners on Friday - podcasting is so my thing, I feel I can do that everyday and for those who missed it, comeback to these 3 links below anytime, as they are the ultimate starter pack if you are looking to start podcasting.
1 - Should I start a podcast - Podcasting 101
2 - My podcast gear: recording, editing, publishing.
3 - Three things I have learned from editing podcasts.

And I am giving away this book this week - did I mention no one can claim the newsletter prize on back to back weeks - we would all like something for all ourselves, won't we?
Finally, isn't it almost jarring the emotion this picture (as seen on Twitter) elicits in what is now our new normal.

And, yes, that's holy water!
Have a great week guys!
See you next week.
