Ever wondered what really goes on with podcast promo swaps or why some hosts charge guests to appear on their shows? Oh, and there’s a juicy bit about a new trend swapping PDFs for digital one-sheets – trust me, it’s a game changer for podcast pitching!

And get this – Angie Trueblood, a master of podcast pitching, spills the beans on the real deal behind booking awesome guest slots and managing podcast pitches. And if you think that's all, wait until you hear her take on the ethics of pay-to-play in podcasting, complete with a crash course on FTC regulations that could save you from a legal mess.

Curious about making real connections in the podcast world without falling into the transactional trap? Angie has some clever strategies that go way beyond the typical guest swaps. No more random collabs that don't make sense; it’s all about strategic moves that actually benefit your show.

In this episode, you’ll discover why just pitching to one show a month might not cut it and how Angie advises to seal the deal with impactful quarterly pitching plans.

Whether you're a podcast pro or just podcast-curious, this episode is packed with insights that’ll make you rethink how you listen to or manage podcasts.
