Ask Joe #29 – The Resurrection of the HSC Podcast!

Big news, folks!

I’m resurrecting the Home Studio Corner Podcast! More specifically, I’m resurrecting Ask Joe.

Ask Joe was a feature I had on the site when I first started it back in 2009. It turned into an Ask Joe Podcast, which then morphed into the “Home Studio Corner Podcast,” and the “Ask Joe” part of it kinda died out.

Then (as you probably know) last year I joined forces with Graham Cochrane of TheRecordingRevolution.com to start the Simply Recording Podcast.

BUT…I still get lots of questions, and I want to answer as many as I can and help as many of my subscribers as I can, SO…I’m bringin’ back Ask Joe!

The easiest way to ask a question is to head over to www.AskJoeGilder.com. That’ll take you to the right place.

As Home Studio Corner grows, it becomes harder and harder to return every single email I get. This podcast will allow me to answer questions more efficiently (and in more detail) than I could do via email.

So, grab a cup of coffee, and take a listen to the resurrected Home Studio Corner Podcast.

Enjoy!
