What others say

Like the Seth Godin of podcasts about podcasting!

Seth Godin is a marketing genius and always makes me think. Evo is like the Seth Godin of podcasts about podcasting. At least 80% of the time, Evo makes me think - and re-think - about all kinds of podcasting topics, best practices, and "big picture" strategies. I no longer produce a podcast of my own. However, listening to Podcast Pontifications helps me work with my clients (podcasters) better. Thank you Evo Terra. CHEERS!

Much needed

I love being given the opportunity to think rather than being instructed what to do. This show allows someone who's just getting into podcasting or has been at it for a while the chance to consider what choices they can make to build a better show for themselves. A much needed show for anyone interested in podcasting to put in their rotation.

An expert in the pontification of podcast knowledge

Evo is an expert in the pontification of podcast knowledge. His approach to sharing this knowledge is approachable and enjoyable. I'm so glad I've discovered this podcast.


I love the brief, but provocative, audio essays!

I love the brief, but provocative, audio essays that get me thinking outside that box the other podcasting pundits often seem to put us in. Even when I disagree with Evo's suggestions, I learn from them. Any podcaster who considers themselves "creative" need to listen regularly.

If you're in podcasting, you should be listening.

Evo is a friend and mentor to me and his show is the audio equivalent of him turning up in my doorway to tell me to think more. If you're in podcasting, you should be listening.

Podcast Yoda Godfather etc..

Evo is awesome! His pontifications are spot on! He brings an informal professionalism backed by a mildly sarcastic and more importantly very real perspective. For podcasters - Podcast Pontifications IS your professional development.


Evo makes me a better podcaster!

As a working podcaster, I learn so much from this podcast. It’s also always both entertaining and consistant.

Evo is like the Seth Godin of podcasts about podcasting!

Seth Godin is a marketing genius and always makes me think. Ditto for Evo: At least 80% of the time, Evo makes me think - and re-think - about all kinds of podcasting topics, best practices, and "big picture" strategies. I no longer produce a podcast of my own. However, listening to Podcast Pontifications helps me work with my clients (podcasters) better. Thank you, Evo Terra. CHEERS!


If You're a Podcaster, You Need to Subscribe!

I've only been listening for less than six month to this great show, and I feel each week I learn something new I never knew about podcasting. With four new episodes a week, always under the ten minute mark, Podcast Pontifications is quick to listen to and easy to digest. It's my go-to show for podcast news and for where the industry is going.

Evo Rules!

Funny and fascinating. Evo is one of the best people in the podcasting space.

Podcast pontificating from a pro!

Evo has been podcasting since long before it became cool, and he’s learned from all of the bumps and bruises podcasting has gone through. Listen to his podcast, and more importantly, listen to him and learn from him!


The best way to find answers is to actually ask the questions.

While many podcasts on podcasting tell you what you should be doing, Evo Terra opens up with questions and musings and sometimes opinions that push me to consider my own podcasting ideas and structures. If you produce or host a podcast, this one needs to be in own personal listening feed. You’ll think about the work we do in a different way and get some motivation to actually act on it.


Podcast Pontifications is a very different kind of podcast about podcasting.

You should totally subscribe and listen as each episode releases. Instead of focusing on gear or getting into the weeds of technology, Evo spends a few minutes each episode (M-Th each week) pontificating about podcasting (the phenomenon itself and its possible future). There's a lot of speculation and opinion & Evo is a self-confessed contrarian. But, he comes from a deeply involved and informed history in the space- having been a podcaster himself since 2004 and co-author of the first edition of Podcasting for Dummies. If there's criticism towards things in podcasting today, it's from a place of love for the scene and a desire to see it get even better. And he's got all kinds of ideas about how it might get even better.


Thought-provoking and inspirational... much so that I 'borrowed' a few ideas from it. Thanks Evo for delivering a bite-size chunk of pod-centric musings four times a week. It's become a priority listen in my, frankly out-of-control, playlist. Keep up the good work!

Pure Gold!

Evo provides amazing content in such a short amount of time and is powerfully persistent in publishing his episodes. One of the first to start podcasting and shares his extensive experience, which is pure GOLD!!!

Fortunate to hear him speak!

Saw him in Phoenix at a startup conference. He makes the opportunity and the strategy so easy to grasp. Offers great insights on tech and production that will save you money and aggravation as he’s been there and knows where your investment is best spent. His Pontifications are very listenable and helpful.

Super helpful and informative!

The short episodes somehow contribute to the quality of the show, so kudos to the host for that.

Great food for thought for podcasters!

Evo has been a thought leader and whiz in the podosphere since he wrote PODCASTING FOR DUMMIES -- he constantly challenges the podcaster to consider more innovations in podcasting and he dares to pull the envelope to new areas that a podcaster must know. A great resource, this podcast show delivers great information from someone who does not mind "disrupting" the status quo to deliver great challenges to make your show better. Also, the consistency of multiple episodes per week is outstanding. Great job, Evo.

Evo has very timely insight into the world of podcasting. If you’re thinking about podcasting or are already a podcaster, you have to make this show a regular in your listening repertoire. Easy to understand and practical information that will help you stay focused on growing your podcast.


Understanding the Newbie Podcaster.

I enjoy Evo’s podcasting insights and digestible tips and strategies for new and experienced podcasters alike. The 10 mins of usable and transferable content is exactly what I need to better my craft. I don’t have to understand podcasting jargon or be an audio engineer to implement his insights. The messaging is clear and given in a friendly tone, like a professional friend who’s expertise you can trust. Thank you for putting in the work and providing us with a glance into your wisdom!


So many little priceless insights for a newbie!

These short episodes are packed with so many very important aspects about creating episodes that serve my audience and provide value. Anyone can create content. Evo consistently provides us with thought provoking concepts that challenge us to raise the bar before we publish. I’ve been trying to catch a few of the FB Live shows but it’s difficult to do with consistency. Thank you Evo for allll of the WORK it takes to flip them into a podcast episode that I can listen to later.
