4 Myths About Live Streaming

Every day we are bombarded with new ways to pour our content into the world, but when it comes to live streaming, podcasters seem more hesitant than ever before. When you break it down to the basics, live streaming is just another way of sharing your content.

Live streaming is the secret sauce of podcasting. The ability to share directly with audiences online allows podcasters to engage with their listeners and build relationships with them.  But, there are also some myths that need to be busted before you start.

There are four myths that might be holding you back, and I bust these in this episode so that you can get started on live streaming,  build an audience, a community, and start doing the things that you've always wanted to do.
