Whether you are thinking about launching a new podcast, want to know how to get booked as a guest, or are curious about all the podcasting hype, this webinar is for you. Podcasts are growing in popularity - as of April, 2019, there were over 500,000 shows on Apple Podcasts alone - and RDNs from every sphere of dietetics are jumping in. Given today's on-the-go, multi-tasking lifestyles coupled with the ease of listening on one's smartphone, getting your daily dose of news, sports, knitting, and nutrition is so much easier when you use your ears versus your eyes. It is hard to read a blog when you’re cooking dinner, but listening to a podcast is a breeze.
