The Ultimate Guide to Becoming a Podcaster

So, I wrote a book…

It’s a little small, but you can see it right there on the virtual cover: By Daniel M. Clark. This is The Ultimate Guide to Becoming a Podcaster, and it’s pretty much what the title implies… it’s everything you need to get started as a podcaster. Some fast facts to get you started:

I’ve been writing articles for NMX for a while now, and they dig my style. When they had the idea to publish a podcasting book in their Ultimate Guide series, I was asked to write it. How could I turn it down?

  1. Hi Daniel or webmaster. This issue might be local to me, but I clicked on the link for the book download and it goes the 2015 conference page, but immediately forwards to another page and I cannot stop it in the page for the conference. The forward is some sort of BS for "Is this your domain?" and I would like to read your book.
