Influencer Interview

This week’s Influencer Interview is with Rob Walch.  Rob is the VP of Podcaster Relations at Libsyn and when I decided not to set up a separate Podcast for my Monday Book Review and closed that Podcast account, Rob reached out to me to ask me if everything was OK with the service from Libsyn.  Of course, it was but in making the connection, I invited him on the the show and this Episode is definitely a must listen show if you host with Libsyn!

This is really an amazing Episode which I am sure you are going to get a massive amount of value from – Thanks Rob!
