Who Are We?

This isn’t a one-man-band community. The Podcast Host ltd. is a UK based business with a team of 4 staff and a network of contractors. The business earns it’s crust through our own range of shows, monetised through affiliate marketing, sponsorship and advertising. We also work with a select group of clients to help them grow their own shows.

Our full team will contribute, but the community is mostly supported by these two suspects:

Colin Gray

Colin Founded and has been teaching people how to podcast since 2007. He’s worked with Universities, businesses and hobbyists alike and started The Podcast Host to help as many people as possible get into Podcasting.

Colin writes, teaches and speaks internationally about all things media content. He’s also earned a PhD in digital education along the way. These days, he Podcasts through Podcraft and the Mountain Bikes Apart podcast. Who doesn’t like to talk bikes, after all!

Matthew McLean

Matthew is the head of audio production at The Podcast Host, taking care of client podcasts and our own shows alike.

His background is in audio drama and can mostly be seen glued to a behemoth 30-track Audition session, tweaking sound effects, background music and a host of actor vocals.

He’s also an award winning podcaster thanks to his work on the Audio Drama Production podcast, which supports the entire Fiction Podcasting community

“As someone who literally had no idea how to go about starting a podcast I am so glad I found Colin! If I hadn’t signed up for the producer Package then I know I would have become completely overwhelmed and would never have managed to bring my podcasting plans to fruition. I’m going to be honest and say that I worried about the monthly cost but I can safely say that it is indeed money well spent. The time I have saved trying to learn to do all of the things that Colin took off my hands has been spent creating good content and building my platform. Colin and the team have a great system going. Everything is streamlined and easy and the team are there as a mentor throughout. If you want to concentrate on creating great content for your show, then get The Podcast Host (within FanFission!) to worry about everything else!”

Frequently Asked Questions

I'm still only thinking about Podcasting. Will FanFission be right for me?
Absolutely – the planning stage is the most important part of starting a show. Work done here has ramifications over the entire life of your show, and we can help you get it right from the very start. We have a set of 3 courses designed directly around the launch process. They’ll make sure you plan everything in a way that gives you the best possible chance of success. Not only that, but you’ll also get support and advice from within the community too, to help you through your journey.
I already have a Podcast that's doing well, what can FanFission do for me?
Assuming you want to keep growing your Podcast then we can help you with fine tuning your audience growth, your content strategy, your monetisation methods and a whole lot more. There are so many ways to make a Podcast a success, and whatever your goals are, we can support you in working towards them. This is definitely not a “beginner only” community. We’ve worked in Podcasting for the past decade, producing shows in many genres, and growing audiences in both our own work, and that of our past clients. We can help you think big, and take steps to get there.
Is the content available straight away or is it time-released (drip fed)?
You get access to everything already inside FanFission straight away! No waiting for content to be released to you, just jump in and start making use of the courses right now. You can view our current course listings here.

We will be regularly releasing new courses as well though – so your content library will continue growing.

Will you be adding new content, or is everything there already?
We’ll be adding new courses regularly so you’ll never be short of something new to learn. We have a roadmap set out for new courses over the coming 12 months, and we’ll be taking suggestions for members for new courses too, so you can have a bit input. On top of that, we’ll be putting out quick-tip tutorials on a regular basis – little hints and tricks that we’re learning in our work, or from the community. These will grow our existing range of courses, if they fit into one, and will be added to a growing ‘quick tip’ library that everyone can access.
I'm a media producer/marketeer/coach looking to help my clients with Podcasting - should I join FanFission?
Yes! That’s our background – working with clients in Podcasting – so we can offer a wealth of experience in how to manage that process. Our training will also be aimed at helping anyone to keep their media production skills and knowledge up to date, so you can use it as a resource to ensure you’re always offering cutting edge services to your clients. Finally, this is a great place to find collaboration opportunities and develop key relationships for your business.
Can I get one-on-one help and support for my project?
Not only can you ask questions and get advice, support and feedback withing our community forums, but we also run monthly Office Hours Q&A sessions. You can pre-submit your questions for Colin & Matthew during those sessions, or even ask them live.
Why should I join up today, rather than waiting?
It’s time for you to take action. Simple as that. If you really want to make a success of your Podcast, then you need somewhere to quickly answer your questions. You need support, community, and most of all… accountability! FanFission is that place. If you really want to make a difference, get on it today!
Do I receive anything in the mail when I join?
Nope, we’re paper free 🙂 FanFission is entirely online.
What if I don't like being a member of FanFission?
We’re confident you’ll LOVE the community with FanFission, but hey, it’s impossible to be everything for everyone. If for whatever reason you’re not 100% satisfied we have a 30 day money back guarantee (no questions asked). We want you to succeed, and know that if you put your heart and soul into this journey, you’ll see amazing results!
What happens if I decide to cancel my membership?
Obviously we’d love it if you stuck around forever – but we’re realistic enough to know that’s not very likely! We hate subscriptions that try to tie you in with complex cancellation processes, so we’ve made it as easy as possible. If you want to cancel then you’ll be able to do it with just a couple of clicks of a mouse.

Just to let you know too, we know that sometimes the timing just isn’t right for you. You don’t want to leave, exactly, but it’s just not your moment. There’s no point paying for your membership during that time.

Because of that, we have the option for you to pause your membership, for however long you need to. You don’t even need to contact us to do it either. Just go to your dashboard and click the link to put your membership on hold. Then when you’re ready to return, you can come back and restart the payments to reinstate your access. Simple!

Do I have permanent access to the courses and material once I join?
No, I’m afraid everything inside FanFission is for members-only. That means that if you cancel your FanFission membership, then you’ll no longer have access to the community.
If I have another question that isn't answered here, who do I contact?
If you would like to ask something else about FanFission or if you’re having any problems joining, then you can get in touch with the team at and we’ll help you out.
