Profile picture for TJ Bonaventura
I began my podcasting journey in 2016. A friend and I tried to launch a podcast and I couldn't believe how much went into creating a show...crazy right?!? For the last 4 years, I've jumped headfirst in podcasting and have made it my passion and livelihood. Since opening StudioPod in 2018 I've helped companies, writers, professional athletes, doctors, and many others produce their podcasts.

Working ~15 years in digital media and teaching a media course, I thought launching my own podcast would be easy. Overwhelmed, I outsourced production and editing to StudioPod, allowing me to focus on what I'm best at, the content and promotion. I joined forces with TJ to help make podcasting easier for the masses, as he did for me.
