About SharedCoordinates

I published my first design related podcast in March 2015, and found that act creating a podcast is easy, figuring out how to get started is the hard part. “How to I get it on iTunes”, “Where do I host it?”, “How do I edit it?” are a few of the questions I need to get answered. Today I decided to start a podcast network called SharedCoordinates to help people like yourself get off the dime and start podcasting.

SharedCoordinates is a podcast network to help anyone in the design industry find and create podcasts. SharedCoordinates will help with a website, hosting, listing on Apple store, and moral support. All this free of charge and is my gift to the design community.
