In this episode, Seth talks with Matt Medeiros, the Director of Podcaster Success at Castos (who just so happens to be our podcast hosting provider). He is also an avid podcaster himself. His main podcast is called the Matt Report, where he interviews influencers in the WordPress, open-source, and business/technology ecosystems. He also has two other podcasts. One is a local podcast focused on the small businesses in his local area, just south of Boston called Southcoast.FM and the other is on WordPress called the WP Minute.
Seth: Hey, Everyone, and welcome to season two, episode twenty-one of the Digital Marketing Dive Podcast. I’m Seth with Goldstein Media, and usually with me is the always amazing and talented Shannon of DIAM Business Consulting, but unfortunately her computer decided to self-destruct and she’s currently on the hunt for a new one. She’ll be missed, but will be back on next week.

We want to thank SavvyCal (https://socl.bz/savvycal) the scheduling tool your recipients will love to use. We’ve all tried different ways to schedule a meeting. From sending times and dates back and forth until a time can be settled on, to services like calendly that just give you a block of times to pick from. Both of these ways are cumbersome.
SavvyCal fixes this, it superimposes your calendar on top of your recipients so make it easy to pick a time that works for both of you.

Well, that was so much fun Matt.
