I learned something

That’s pretty much what I say every time I listen to Dave. Not only does he know his stuff, he can communicate it! Thx Dave. Louis Goodman

Lots to learn!

Thanks for helping me learn there’s a lot to learn to start a podcast. Good to hear from an OG Hall of Famer how to do things the right way!

He shows up authentically & provides tremendous value to podcasters looking to perfect their craft from developing your personal brand to discussing the arvatsgexpodcasters have. I love that he provides so much value RIGHT here without being pushy to get you to join his program. Thank you for all your hard work Dave!

Great podcasting resource

Whether you're new to podcasting, or an experienced podcaster, you're sure to learn something from each and every epsiode of School of Podcasting. Dave has been in podcasting from the start, and he does an excellent job of sharing what he's learned along the way.

I love this podcast!

Dave Jackson imparts incredible knowledge about podcasting and has been the single most helpful human being as I started off with my podcast. I’m now at close to 100 episodes and Dave Jackson is still my number one go to person for podcast knowledge and help!

A Serendipitous Experience

I went to Podcast Movement 2021 in Nashville and met Dave at the Libsyn booth. I didn’t know he was the host of the School of Podcasting at that time. Dave and the group I was with later ironically had lunch together due to some mutual connections. It was then I found out about Dave’s School of Podcasting show. I am so thrilled I found this show. I’ve been podcasting now for around 7 months and am loving it and learning a great deal as I go. Having found Dave’s show and listening to the content has been extremely valuable to me. I’m considering joining his online group to continuing the learning with like-minded individuals. Thank you Dave for the great content you produce and the serendipitous meeting we had at the booth and over lunch. I’m looking forward to continuing to learn with your community and through your show.

He Can Say It, Because He Has Done It

I’ve been listening to Dave Jackson’s podcasts from the very beginning. Yes, the VERY start of his podcasting experience. I remember the launch of the School of Podcasting. The beauty of this launch was not that it started the era of quality podcast coaching, but that it came AFTER Dave had already jumped through many of the hoops, failed at many approaches, and discovered many of the best practices of podcasting. Dave has done a number of shows through the years. When he offers an approach, it’s because he’s become adept at that offering. When he recommends a service (or suggests you should avoid it) it’s because he has used it and tried everything possible to break it or to take best advantage of it. Dave’s School of Podcasting is the real deal. He deserves every accolade he receives, including his Podcast Hall of Fame award. Listen to the School of Podcasting — whether you are just getting started — or when you are a veteran podcaster hoping to keep up with the best practices of podcasting.

Super helpful ❤️🔥🤟

I find this podcast to be extremely helpful. Dave not only educates, he manages to be funny through storytelling when he does it.! Dr. John - The Men’s Self Help Podcast


Truly the heart of a teacher but also has the best information and experience to teach the right way to podcast. He is in the Podcasting Hall of Fame for a reason!

Hall of Fame for a Reason

A chatty show that treats listeners like family vs. one hurling podcasing tidbits. Podcasters, like any group, are often enamored hot, shiny baubles. Dave Jackson has a fantastic knack for helping people refocus on the basics that help you grow a podcast and skip the mistakes. I've avoided so many problems by listening to this podcast.

Wasn’t sure but then I was hooked

At first I thought oh man, this guy is like a sports announcer, but the episode was so good I immediately listened To the next episode and subscribed. There’s some great nuggets of advice that I will immediately put into my podcast. Highly recommend for anyone, senior or newbie podcasters alike. Thank you!

Not the most technical, but the most motivating

Tired of going down techie rabbit holes? Tired of Rah Rah passive income nonsense. Check out THE Dave Jackson. He's a podcasting OG, but still remembers what it's like to be a newbie. Has the technical chops to be really helpful, but understands that podcasting isn't about the tech. Check out a couple episodes. He's kind of like your crazy Uncle. Lots of cheesy jokes, but you'll love him to death.

Great job

I like this podcast a lot because I am a podcaster “ What’s That “ it gives me the best tips and tricks for my podcast The only thing I don’t like is he trash talked anchor, which is the platform ,It is so easy to use and it is free But other than that it is pretty good

Really helpful

I’m still trying get better for my podcast and whenever I get discouraged, I listen to Dave. Afterwards I always feel better and get excited to continue to improve. I think my podcast is improving as I have tried to apply some of Dave’s advice to my show. Thanks for contributing your knowledge Dave!

Helps me to level up as a podcaster

Great content, motivational and informative. Def recommend, to you who are making podcasts

Definitely helped me get started

Dave’s podcasts were very helpful in getting me started with my own podcast. In addition to the operational knowledge, he is a great motivator. The motivational aspect kept moving me to action.

Excellent + Immediate Value

This is an excellent podcast that offers immediate value. I learned multiple valuable insights and was taking copious notes the entire time.

A great lesson every week

SOP is a definite must-listen for anybody looking to get into podcasting. Whether as a hobby or as a business, Dave has words of wisdom with the gusto of a Top 40 DJ. So many great nuggets of knowledge, almost NONE of which are about tech, microphone styles, or recording platforms. SOP proves you can sound good on a budget.

Everything You Need to Know right here, at the School of Podcasting and in the satellite campuses in the Podcasting Network. Dave Jackson tells you honestly, openly, and with the right level of wit, humor, and compassion what you need to know to launch and succeed with a podcast. No, it’s not about the mic. Or the host. And not the mixer. It’s about the “why”, and Dave tells you, on many levels, how to hone your why. Want to launch a podcast? Start here.

A must-listen for podcasters

SOP is pretty much my go to for everything to do with podcasting. I’m working on launching my own podcast and everything is covered here to get me going. Honestly listening to Dave and his guests has really helped calm some of my nerves and give me the tools and motivation to get this off the ground. I definitely recommend if you’re planning to launch a podcast or currently run one and want to learn more!

Always a good lesson

Dave Jackson and The School of Podcasting rocks my socks. Dave says what needs to be said and it’s like I’m listening to myself with a deeper voice because he speaks my language. You’ll always get an easily implementable takeaway. Five stars!

Best podcasting education!

Dave’s show is absolutely entertaining and educational all at the same time. I learn so much every time I listen and enjoy it all at the same time! Thanks Dave!

This podcast has saved me time and money

Edutainment at its finest. Dave knows his (you know what) about podcasting but delivers the information in a way that’s fun to listen to.

Real, honest, entertaining and educational!

I’ve known Dave for years as the podcast guy, I’ve seen him speak on it as well. But it wasn’t until I finally launched my podcast that I tuned into his show. Within just a few episodes, I realized that I should have been listening way before I started. Dave is a wealth of information. I love that he is brutally honest, and not afraid to tell it like it is. I will be listening going forward, as this information is what I need to grow and improve my podcast!

Excellent podcast teacher

I love both podcasts: School of Podcasting and Your Podcast Consultant. Your Podcast Consultant is my favorite of the two because it gets to the point. School of Podcasting is wonderful as well. Dave Jackson shares what he knows in a way I need to hear it. I am starting my own podcast this year, and Dave’s podcasts are helping me. I appreciate Dave’s offer during his podcast to hire him as a consultant. I’m planning to get his opinion before I record my first episode. I don’t know about you, but I can’t see my blind spots. I know Dave can. I appreciate your podcasts! Thank you Dave!

I wish I could do what you do

Love your show. You are my podcast hero

KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK DAVE JACKSON !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This podcast changed my life!

Literally! I came to the US in 2008, with a thick accent and a little bit of conversational english. I spent almost 10 years trying to chase the dream and blend in but I never thought that I’d break out of the mold. I started listening to podcasts and stumbled upon Dave’s podcast 2 years ago. I never looked back since. Not only did he bring out my confidence, he also armed me with the tools i need to start my own podcast. I started the wedding video boss podcast in January 2019 and it has surpassed my expectations. Thanks so much Dave! I owe you big time! 😘
