On this episode, we have Kevin Gootee, a comedian, actor, podcast host and voice over artist. Perhaps best known as the creator, executive producer and director of the series Comics Watching Comics, currently on Amazon.
Kevin has cut his teeth in the comedy space for over a decade. His podcast, Gutting the Sacred Cow, combines his passion for movies with his comedic chops, as he and his guests give scathing movie reviews of the most beloved films of all time. We talk about standup comedy, voice over acting, producing television shows and how all these artistic forms have helped him launch and grow his podcast.
On this episode I had an amazing conversation with Harry Duran, the host of Podcast Junkies. If you’re not familiar with Podcast Junkies, consider Harry the OG host of a podcast about podcasting. Launched back in 2014 and 225 episodes published, Harry has had incredible guests like John Lee Dumas, Pat Flynn, Jordan Harbinger, and Helen Zaltman on the show.
Harry’s also the founder of Fullcast.co, a full service business podcast consultancy where he helps launch, produce, scale and market podcasts for an array of clientele. He’s also a frequent startup advisor, which makes this conversation an important one for us at Vurbl!

On this episode, we have Daniel Jiang, a brand new podcaster who hasn’t even released his first episode. That’s right, as of this recording, he’s in the editing process of Episode #1 of a podcast that doesn’t have a name either.
If you’re a podcaster, think back to when you were editing your very first episode. The nerves. The uncertainty. The excitement! And if you’re thinking about launching a podcast, you’ll want to hear how Daniel is positioning his show and how he plans to keep the production as easy as possible.
On this episode, we have a couple who has been podcasting for over 10 years now. Rod & Karen from The Black Guy Who Tips podcast have produced or been a guest on nearly 2,500 individual podcast episodes. They’ve built an incredibly loyal and engaged subscriber base by being two of the most authentic hosts in the podcasting community.
They have some incredibly fun stories to tell and lessons they’ve learned while grinding in the podcast game. I had a ton of fun chatting with them and I think you’re going to love them too.
On this episode, we have Mandy Balak, founder of The Ace Class community and host of the Ace Talks Podcast. Just listen to everything that’s involved with community; courses and labs to launch and grow a business, a private Facebook group, virtual meetups, instagram lives, workshops, Q&A’s, mentor calls, a resource library, and physical events. And of course an incredible podcast to keep the entire community engaged.
While you listen, be sure to take note of the ideas, tips, tools, processes, challenges and the type of wins that help audio creators build a highly engaged audience – and in Mandy’s case – a physical and digital membership community.

One of their flagship shows, titled; Alba Salix, follows Alba, Farloria’s Royal Physician. As head witch and the only regular staff member at the new House of Healing, Alba has an endless lineup of patients and a bickering King and Queen to please.
Fortunately, help is on the way. Unfortunately, that help is from Magnus, a troublesome young ex-monk and aspiring surgeon, and Holly, an accident-prone fairy herbalist.
