As a long-time radio professional, I know how difficult it is sometimes to find information to use on your radio show or podcast. Show prep services are fine, but sometimes you need more than what you’ll get through show prep services.

I’ve collected the links above that help during my daily radio show. They’re divided into various sections to make it easier to find what you need. At the top you’ll find Quick Links to all the section headings so you can jump to where you need.
