#60 - Take Your Podcast to the Next Level - Rockwell Felder & Zach Moreno (Squadcast)

#60 - Take Your Podcast to the Next Level - Rockwell Felder & Zach Moreno (Squadcast)

November 3, 2020

My Guests today are Rockwell Felder and Zach Moreno who are the co-founders of SquadcastFM and the hosts of the Between 2 Mics podcast, about how they found an opportunity to make a big difference in a crowded industry. Together they are on a mission to amplify collaboration by making the process or recording podcasts as seamless and hassle free as possible. Their innovative product is fast becoming the industry standard to record shows remotely in the best sound quality possible.

SquadCast.fm, is an intuitive audio and video recording platform that is taking the podcast world by storm. Zach and Rock’s backgrounds could not be more different. Zach comes from the world of Software Engineering, where he worked for the government developing tools and apps. Rock, on the other hand, comes from the world of corporate auditing, where he worked for Moss Adams LLP in the assurance services department.

While they met in high school, they reconnected years later when their common desire to make more of an impact on the world intersected at the perfect moment. Zach had been having issues with a sci-fi drama podcast that he had created. He loved the world of podcasting, but the technical issues of producing and airing the podcast were taking the enjoyment out of the process. In that moment, Zach pitched Rock the idea that would later become SquadCast.fm.

The decision and partnership easily formed due to their shared love of podcasting and desire to empower & encourage content creators to engage in meaningful conversations without barriers. Today, some of the brightest minds in podcasting refer to SquadCast.fm as “the industry standard” to record your show remotely in the best sound quality possible. In addition to high quality remote audio recording, this year SquadCast.fm is launching high quality remote video recording capabilities.

What we’ll be discussing today:

  • How to start a podcast in 2020
  • Taking your podcast to the next level
  • Tips to record a great podcast interview remotely
  • Leveraging high quality video to expand brand awareness
  • Insider tips from two tech entrepreneurs that launched their dream into reality.

A bit about my guest on today’s episode:

My Guest today is Brian Kurtz currently the Founder of Titans Marketing.

Brian Kurtz has had two careers. The first spanned 34 years as a force behind Boardroom Inc., an iconic publisher and direct marketer. During that time, he was mentored by, and worked with, a who’s who of marketing legends (who he owes everything to). And more specifically, he worked side-by-side with the most prolific copywriters who have ever lived.

His second career, which he is five years into as the Founder of Titans Marketing, is a direct marketing educational and coaching company where he has also continued working with the best-of-the-best.

Titans Marketing is known for two (soon to be three) mastermind groups, an array of classic books and swipe files Brian has re-published and created…and he is the author of two books himself.

His most recent book is Overdeliver: Build a Business for a Lifetime Playing the Long Game in Direct Response Marketing. It is his opus (but not a memoir).

His first book, The Advertising Solution, profiles six legends of advertising and copywriting including Gene Schwartz and Gary Halbert.

As a business-to-consumer marketer at Boardroom, Brian was responsible for selling over a billion dollars’ worth of products “$39 at a time” to millions.

As a business-to-business marketer with Titans Marketing, he has sold over $5 million worth of products (and services) to thousands, enabling them to spread the gospel about direct marketing to millions.

During both careers, he has been a serial direct marketer, with a foundation in the eternal truths and fundamentals of direct response…while being committed to “overdelivering” over almost four decades.

What we’ll be discussing today:

  • Marketing
  • Breakthrough Advertising Book
  • Overdeliver Book
