Update: 2020-09-07


So you want to get your podcast up and running but don’t know how much time you need to set aside to launch your show?

Can you get a podcast launched in a matter of weeks or is it a dream you’ll have to put on the calendar for months or years in advance?

In this episode I take you through the one thing you’ve got no control over when it comes to the timing of your launch and what you need to get sorted before you press publish on your show.

Check out the full episode show notes:

About me…

My name is Rachel Corbett and I've worked professionally for almost two decades in radio and podcasting. I've hosted and produced shows for some of the biggest radio networks in Australia, created three of my own independent podcasts and I was Head of Podcasts for Mamamia, the largest women's podcast network in the world.

At Mamamia, I grew the podcast network from 15 to over 35 shows, the team from two to nine producers and the audience to over 1 million unique listeners a month and over 90 million downloads which is more than quadruple where it was when I started.

I've also hosted over ten podcasts with more than 2 million downloads including Lady Startup, Eligible, Before The Bump and You’ve Gotta Start Somewhere. You can find all my podcasts at

I've taught radio and podcasting at the Australia Film Television and Radio School and have my own online podcasting course, PodSchool, so if you're looking for someone who knows what they're talking about when it comes to pods, you've come to the right place.
