Start a podcast now with
Your complete podcast launch program, that takes you from concept to podcaster!
It’s time to share your story.
Podcasting is the most effective way to share what you know, build a loyal audience, and create true connections with your people. Whether you’re an entrepreneur looking for more qualified leads, or a creator looking for more opportunities to connect with your audience, starting a podcast will help you do that.
Podcast listeners have grown by over 15% in the U.S. in just the last year alone! With more awareness, more accessibility and more flexibility to listen on demand, wherever they are, your audience is craving the opportunity to connect with you.
And guess what – that content you’re creating? It’s going to outlast social media, emails, and blogs burried at the bottom of your website.
Compared to social media, blogging and even YouTube videos, a podcast is an easy access point for your audience to find you. Whether they take you on their commute, on a run, for a walk or even doing the dishes – you’re getting their dedicated focus and one-on-one time, exactly when they need it.
But right now these thoughts might be going through your head…
Look, I totally get it, starting a podcast from scratch can be totally overwhelming!

A little love from past Podcast Rocketeers:
“It was so refreshing because the way that you talk about podcasting you were so comfortable about it. And it didn’t sound so complicated anymore. Taking Podcast Rocket was so great for me because having the touch points with you to talk it out made it even less scary.“
– Nathalie Amlani,
Co-Host of The Sunrise Brand Collective Podcast
“I felt like, why should I put this out there? There’s already experts in the field doing the same thing, and I could make a million excuses as to why I shouldn’t do it. And I then kind of got over myself. I just needed to sit down and do it!“
– Chris Swail,
Host of A Little Bit Better
“I loved in Podcast Rocket – you said ‘You’re a podcaster now!’ And that’s totally the vibe I was pulling, I was like ‘I am a podcaster now! This is so cool!'”
– Sara Vartanian,
Host of The Launch Playbook Podcast

What’s going to make the world a better place? You becoming a podcaster, that’s what!
Hey! I’m Emily Milling, the brains behind Podcast Rocket, and also your mega hype-person!
I started Podcast Rocket with the mission to help passionate creators and entrepreneurs to share their stories through podcasting. AND, to have FUN while we do it!
It took me years to figure out how to properly set up my mic for the best quality sounding recording, and what topics my audience truly wanted to hear about from me. Not only that, but I found the whole world of audio to be pretty closed off – if I didn’t already know something, I felt like I was out of luck.
That’s why I decided to combine my experience as a feature film sound designer, composer, comedian, and producer for dozens of podcasts to give you a unique course experience. One that inspires you, makes you feel good about the process, and above all else – to find your inner creative through audio.
Look, you’re not meant to do this all alone. In fact it would be so boring and frustrating to launch a podcast by yourself that I absolutely want to be your cheerleader throughout the entire process, and help you get from start to finish without tearing your hair out! We’re in this together, and I’ve got your back!

I want to start right away, can I access the course materials now?
Podcast Rocket officially begins on April 12, 2021 and all of the materials will be available then! You can move through the materials at your own pace and join the weekly group check-in calls for any questions you might have related to that week’s materials.
How much time per week does this course take?
Between lessons, videos and workbook, you can expect to spend about an hour per day, 5 days a week on your podcast for the duration of the course.
Do I need to know what my podcast will be about before I join?
Nope! We’ll be exploring different genres, formats and styles, along with setting your goals right in module one, so that you can get real-time feedback on your ideas. This is also important because we’ll be researching your audience to learn what their wants and needs are – this way, you’ll be able to validate your podcast idea before getting too far into the weeds.
Having said that, if you have an idea, you’re in a great place to start into your market research in module 1 as well!
Do I need a microphone to get started with this course?
Nope! In fact if you’re still on the fence about what to buy, we cover that in part 2 of Podcast Rocket so that you can feel 100% confident in your recording device choice!
How much time does podcasting actually take?
You can expect to spend approximately 6-8 hours per month on your show, including recording, editing, marketing materials (show notes, graphics, social posts, emails) and posting. If your episode is 15 minutes long, expect to spend approximately 30 minutes editing.
Here’s how I break it down by month for a weekly show:
- 1 hour to prep 4 episodes
- 1-2 hours recording 4 20-30 min episodes
- 3-4 hours of editing
- 1-2 hours creating promo materials
How much does it cost to keep my podcast going?
You can expect to spend around $20 a month on hosting for your podcast. If you choose to work with a podcast editor, you can expect to spend betwen $300-$1500 a month depending on the level of service you need. You can use free apps (we cover GarageBand and Audacity) or you can use paid apps which are usually around $20/mo (we cover Descript).
Will you show me how to set up my microphone?
Yes! You’ll have a clear understanding of the best practices for recording for several types of formats (including virtual interview recording!) to ensure your show sounds polished and professional.
Will you show me how to edit?
Absolutely! We’ll look at editing in two free softwares, Garageband (Mac) and Audacity (PC) as well as my favourite app, Descript which makes editing audio as easy as editing text! I’ll also show you some mixing techniques that I use to enhance the overall quality of your recordings.
What if I don't want to edit?
That’s cool too! No matter what you’ll want to take advantage of all of the other components in Podcast Rocket so that you’re prepared to hire an editor or producer. We even cover how to hire an editor or producer in the module on editing!
I have more questions!
