Podcast Answer Man – Click Here To Listen!
I (Cliff Ravenscraft) launched the Podcast Answer Man podcast back in December of 2006, one year after I started podcasting. I had been approached by several people, asking me to help them figure out how to launch a podcast. Technically, I was still podcasting as a hobby at that time and I had decided to start doing some paid consulting work on the side.
One thing led to another and less than a year, after launching the Podcast Answer Man podcast, I became convinced that I could actually make a living doing podcasting full-time as my career. If you want to hear the full story of how this happened, I would encourage you to listen to Episode 425 of PABL & Episode 88 of FFTH. Today, just a few years later, I’m happy to announce that I’ve created a very successful podcast network and a podcast and new media consulting/coaching business.
Podcast Answer Man is perfect for the brand new podcaster and seasoned podcasters alike. My goal is consistently encourage podcasters to dream big and to always think about how they can take their podcast to the next level. It’s also a great show for anyone who wants to hear how I’ve taken my passion and turned it into a profitable online business.
Pursuing a Balance Life – Click Here To Listen!
Pursuing A Balanced Life was originally launched in March of 2006. When it started, I (Cliff Ravenscraft), worked as an independent insurance agent, in a family run insurance agency, and had only been podcasting as a hobby for a few short months. In January 2008, I left my career in insurance, after 11 years, to pursue podcasting as my full-time career.
This podcast has served as an audio journal that has chronicled everything that led to my decision to leave my career in insurance and to start my own online business. This podcast contains the most exhaustive account of all the things that I have learned about building my own business and how I’ve managed to balance all the demands that come along with being an entrepreneur.
I invite you to subscribe and join me as I continue to share all the business and success principles that I learn along the way as well as my pursuit of finding a balance between my focus on my career, my desire to be a great husband and father, my desire to become more physically fit and healthy, and my desire to live a life of faith.
Encouraging Others Through Christ – Click Here To Listen!
The Encouraging Others Through Christ podcast is a show that started out as a show devoted to real talk about real faith. Early on, this was a show that was produced on a weekly basis with a co-host and went by the title of the “About The Church” podcast.
In September of 2011, I released episode 121 where I began to chronicle a major shift in my faith journey. Just a few episodes later, I decided to rebrand this podcast as the Encouraging Others Through Christ podcast. Whenever I tell folks about this show, I always encourage them to start with episode 121 and move their way forward through the episodes. This show is not on any set schedule. I simply record new episodes as I feel led to do so. I hope that, if you decide to check out this podcast, you will be encouraged and inspired in your own journey of faith.

Our Podcast Series Shows
An example of a series podcast would our Hunger Games podcast where we create episodes as we read through each of the books in the series and review each of the movies as they come out. After we have covered all the books/movies, that “series” is considered complete and it will remain as podcast that folks can listen to from beginning to end as they discover it.
Our series podcasts can be devoted to books, movie franchises, television shows, or simply about a topic where we only intend to create a limited number of episodes about that topic. An example of this would be the Virtual Assistant Podcast listed below.
Veronica Mars Fan Podcast – Click Here To Listen!
Veronica Mars is an American television series by Rob Thomas that launched on September 22nd, 2004 on the CW television network. The show was cancelled in its third season in May of 2007. Fans of the tv show were very upset about the cancellation of the show and started various campaigns to convince the network to reverse their decision and continue with the production.
Stephanie had not heard about Veronica Mars until the show had already been canceled. Friends began telling stories about how fans had hired a plane to fly a banner over the CW offices that said “Renew Veronica Mars” and about their campaign where fans sent well over 10,000 “Mars Bars” to the CW network executives. These stories certainly peaked Stephanie’s interest and she began watching the show from the beginning. She was hooked.
It was not until the 2013 Kickstarter Campaign where the show’s creator announced that he had struck a deal with Warner Brothers to bring closure to the Veronica story in the form of a movie. However, there was one stipulation. He had to raise 2 Million Dollars from fans of the show for the to studio move forward. Stephanie and I watched as the kickstarter campaign was successfully funded with more than 2 million dollars in pledges within the first 24 hours. Of course, Stephanie was one of those backers. When I (Cliff) saw that a total of 91,585 fans donated over 5.7 million dollars to this campaign, I was convinced that now was the time to see what is so special about this tv show. And that, my friends, is why the Veronica Mars Fan Podcast exists.
Hunger Games Fan Podcast – Click Here To Listen!
The Hunger Games Trilogy is takes place in a post apocalyptic future were the United States of America has collapsed and Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts.
Each year, two young representatives between the ages of 12 and 18 are selected from each district to participate in The Hunger Games. The televised games are broadcasted throughout Panem as the 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch.
If you can get over the brutal concept of young kids fighting each other to the death for people’s entertainment and the fact that this series was originally written for a very young audience, we feel that you will come to enjoy this series like millions of people around the world have.
Cliff and Stephanie invite you to join them as they share their initial reaction to this story as they are reading it for the the first time.
Twilight Saga Podcast – Click Here To Listen!
Stephane was first introduced to the Twilight Saga back in Spring of 2009 when she saw the first movie, Twilight. While on Spring Break holiday, Stephanie borrowed all the books from her sister and ended up reading all four of them within five days. She was hooked and has read the complete series a total of six times.
In November of 2009, Cliff decided to read the series along with her to find out what she found so fascinating about this story. Cliff was shocked to find that he really enjoyed the story as well and they decided that they would podcast about each of the books chapter by chapter. The podcast also includes their reviews of each of the movies in the Twilight Saga as well as a review of the novella “The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner.”
Virtual Assistant Podcast – Click Here To Listen!
The Virtual Assistant Podcast is that I created to to introduce small to medium size business owners to the possibility of becoming more productive and profitable through the principle of delegation.
I, Cliff Ravenscraft, hired my first virtual assistant in January of 2010 and it immediately changed the way I do business. Hiring a virtual assistant was one the best business decisions that I’ve made. I became so excited about my experiences that I decided to launch a podcast where I could share my virtual assistant journey and where I could answer other people’s questions about how they could benefit from having their own virtual assistant.
This show was marked complete after 38 episodes. However, there is no doubt that going through listening to this show from beginning to end would be helpful to anyone who feels like they simply have too much work on their plate!
Weekly Lost Podcast – Click Here To Listen!
The Weekly Lost Podcast is where Cliff and Stephanie’s journey into the world of podcasting began back in 2005. While Stephanie had been watching LOST from the very first episode, Cliff had got hooked on the show after catching the last four episodes of the first season. For Cliff, it was the hidden clues and the overall mystery of the island that drew him in.
Cliff had initially started out blogging about Lost and listening to a small handful of Lost Podcasts. Many of Cliff’s blog posts highlighting easter eggs and unique theories were picked up by major media outlets like Entertainment Weekly. When Cliff was encouraged by Lost Podcasters, Ryan & Jenn Ozawa, to launch his own podcast, he jumped at the opportunity and convinced Stephanie to join him.
The rest is history which you can read on the GSPN Wikipedia page. While the show was on the air, Cliff and Stephanie produced two podcast episodes every week devoted to the show. They would record an initial reaction podcast immediately following the episode and then they would produce a full weekend review in a live audience setting on the gspn.tv live show page.
Now that the series has come to an end, the production of this podcast has also come to an end. We still list the show here as a podcast series for those who may ever want to go through the archives and to see the roots of where this entire network got its start.
