IOB Podcast for Podcasters

Jul 7, 2021

The IOB Podcast!

Let’s make YOUR podcast better. 

In iob episode eight, we talk with Jenny Hamson—lead graphic artist for the Laboratory of Laser Energetics at the University of Rochester, but more importantly to us, she creates outstanding podcast art.

 Some of the questions Jenny answers for us:

  • Do we really need nice podcast art? How important is it?
  • I heard basic graphics are not good. Do you agree?
  • Should I have my picture in the podcast art?
  • Usage of images off the internet?
  • Isn’t it expensive?
  • Why hire a professional?
  • How to know you’re working with a REAL professional?!
  • Why Canva or Photoshop is NOT the software you want to use!
  • Can I throw my art on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, et al?
  • Fonts?
  • Word usage in podcast art?
  • Color usage?
  • How to get an idea for your podcast art.
  • Check out the artwork on


A HUGE thank you to Jenny Hamson!

Stay in touch with your listeners. Start your email list if you haven’t already. Use AWEBER—it’s truly the best out there. We’ve fully migrated to Aweber from MailChimp. If you have less than 500 people on your list, it’s FREE. Please use our affiliate link to join. Thank you!

Interview people for your podcast STRESS-FREE! Use what we’ve just switched to—SQUADCAST! No special technical skills required. IN CASE OF EMERGENCY, they record you on the cloud, too (audio AND video)! And you can try it free for 7 days. Sounds silly, but my favorite part is they have a GREEN ROOM!! No M&Ms, though~! My recommendation, get it an hour before your interview and schedule at least three interviews so you can really see how it works BEFORE you pay! We’d greatly appreciate it if you used our affiliate link—thank you!
