How much does it cost to start a podcast?

If you’re thinking about starting a podcast and wondering how much it costs, this episode is for you. My hope is that by pulling back the curtain a bit and sharing how much podcasting costs, you’ll be able to make an informed financial decision about starting a podcast.

Danielle (host of The Thought Card) and Shereen (host of Creative Breakthrough) share the real costs of starting a podcast.

Today I’m joined by Shereen “a.k.a. funnybrowngirl” Kassam. Shereen is an internationally touring stand up comedian, radio personality, actress and the host of Creative Breakthrough a podcast where passion and hustle meet.

Creative Breakthrough helps creatives jump start their creative careers by bringing listeners in-depth career driving conversations with successful creative leaders of color across TV, film, music, literature and more.

Spoiler alert, both Shareen and I spent over $650 while podcasting for 3 months (including start-up costs).
