Jacob is available for

I’ve been working in and around digital audio – which is to say, podcasts – for a decade: on audience research, analytics, monetization, growth, and strategy. I won’t make your podcast for you (I know who could) but I can talk to you about pretty much everything else with regards to digital audio. Namely

-Should I/my company have a podcast? Or engage in the audio space in some way?
-What would that look/sound like?
-How will that support business goals?
-What would it take to get it done?

If you are thinking about audio in any way, and there’s a question mark at the end of those thoughts – let’s talk.
