Hey, I'm Melissa!

And after launching and growing two successful podcasts of my own, including a podcast that peaked as the #2 Career Podcast in America, I started teaching others how they could do it, too. At Wit & Wire – the business behind the podcast – we have podcasting courses and services (like podcast editing) to help anyone launch a podcast.

And even if you have doubts – like maybe your topic has already been taken, or you don’t know where to find new listeners, or maybe you don’t even know where to begin – then you’re in the right place.

Because I believe that anyone can launch a great podcast, and that someone out there needs to hear your voice. So it’s my job to help you put your best foot forward and build a binge-worthy podcast that creates an audience of raving fans.
