Book Synopsis

From the #1 New York Times bestselling McElroy Brothers, creators of the hit podcasts My Brother, My Brother and Me and The Adventure Zone, comes a helpful and hilarious how-to podcast guide covering everything you need to know to make, produce, edit, and promote a podcast...and get rich* doing it! (*Results not guaranteed.)

Justin, Travis, and Griffin McElroy made their names as "advice giving brothers who have no business giving advice" (New York Times) on the hit podcast My Brother, My Brother and Me. But while they may not have the best relationship or workplace advice, they certainly make you laugh, and they do know a thing or two about podcasting.

In fact, the McElroy Brothers have spent the last decade making podcasts, including My Brother, My Brother and Me; The Adventure Zone; Sawbones; and more. From their start, independently producing and releasing the early episodes of My Brother, My Brother and Me, to their eleven currently available podcasts, the McElroys have become experts in creating successful podcasts. And now, they want to share what they've learned with you.

In Everybody Has a Podcast (Except You), the McElroy Brothers will walk you through the process of turning an idea into ear-candy for legions of fans, sharing their expertise on everything from deciding on an effective name (definitely not something like My Brother, My Brother and Me), what type of microphone to use (definitely not one from the video game Rock Band), to making lots and lots of money (spoiler: you probably won't).

A must-read for anyone interested in podcasting, Everybody Has a Podcast (Except You) shares the keys to success as well as the mistakes to avoid and draws on the vast experiences of three of the funniest and most successful podcasters working today.

Review Quotes

"Everybody has a Podcast is funny, self-deprecating and, yes, smart and encouraging. If you're interested in podcasting...the McElroy's book is a good place to start."--Ron Charles, Washington Post

"This is a course on podcasting, except very funny, very current and (as one would hope) so listenable I devoured it in a day.... a thorough resource for anyone remotely interested in the world of D.I.Y. podcasting." --New York Times (on the audiobook)

"The McElroy boys are some of the most well-respected folks in podcasting (also some of the nicest, but I guess that's less relevant here), and this book is them sitting down with you and talking you through podcasting, every step of the way. This is a lifetime of podcasting experience in one easy-to-read book. Why are you still reading this quote? If you want to learn how to podcast, just buy this book already." --Joseph Fink, New York Times bestselling author and creator of Welcome to Night Vale

"The McElroys have injected their signature quirk and humor into every page. More than that, they make the sometimes-daunting process of podcasting completely approachable. . . .. It's not just funny; it contains truly good advice that one would expect from a family with their experience. Even readers who open the book without the desire to start a podcast might be inspired to give it a try."--Booklist

"When it comes to the fine art of podcasting, the McElroy brothers are experts, and their advice should always be followed. I venture to say that nobody understands better than Justin, Travis, and Griffin how to create podcasts that are not only brilliant, funny, and humane, but also (and here is the hard part!) successful. Written with their trademark generosity, humor, and modesty, this book is a treasure trove of information and wisdom that I suspect people will be consulting for years. A valuable offering, indeed!" --Elizabeth Gilbert, New York Times bestselling author of City of Girls and Eat, Pray, Love

The secret to successful podcasting is that people like hanging out with their friends. The McElroys are your friends. So you hang out with them in your ears. There. I just wrote the book for you in one blurb. But buy this book anyway because, like all the McElroys, it's super funny, kind, genuinely instructive and wise, and just fun to be around. --John Hodgman, New York Times bestselling author of Medallion Status and Vactionland

The McElroy brothers are the first family of podcasting. They managed to write a book that proves they can be funny and true to themselves while still doling out great information. It's a legitimate and thorough how-to for anyone interested in podcasting, filled with real advice (this time) along with a generous side helping of humor and wit. --Chuck Bryant, cohost of Stuff You Should Know
