Focus on telling your story
Podcasting can be a lot of work, and the details of getting your podcast set up can be very time consuming. If you're a full time student at UC Berkeley, juggling extracurriculars and recruiting for internships and full time jobs, you probably don't have time to do all this.
We want to help you focus on telling your story, whether it's about business, politics, astrophysics, or just your band jamming out. Here's what we provide:

As the network grows, this will become an invaluable asset to both your potential guest-list and your personal network.
