Founded in 2005 by Lee Hopkins and Sallie Goetsch, the Podcast Asylum is a collaborative network of experienced podcast and blog consultants.
Below you will find a brief description of each member of the network, and ways to contact them.
Based in Adelaide, Australia, Lee is one of Australia’s leading thinkers and practitioners around communication strategy in an online environment. His own successful podcast, ‘Better Communication Results’ attracts hundreds of downloads each episode and his blog is widely respected and read on the internet.
As co-founder of the Podcast Asylum, Author-izer Sallie Goetsch (rhymes with ‘sketch’) writes and speaks about podcasting from the listener’s perspective. She started ‘smoking the podcast dope’ in April 2005 and immediately contracted a bad case of Earbud Isolationism, using podcasting to make connections and attract prospects from around the world without recording her own podcast. She works tirelessly to cure the epidemic of Podcastus Ignoramus among business owners.
A natural-born pedant, Sallie translated Greek and Roman drama for the stage and taught at the University of Warwick in England before moving to Northern California to start her own business turning busy professionals into authors.
