About The Podcast Doctor
Phil Byrd, better known as "The Podcast Doctor," has always been a lover of entertainment. As a child, his stuttering problem made him the butt of many jokes, but speech therapy helped him discover the magic of radio and audio recording. Determined to make a career in the entertainment industry, Phil practiced his skills and worked hard to improve his speech. He dabbled in music and explored the world of AV, eventually enrolling in broadcasting school and landing an internship at Real Radio 104.1.
But Phil's journey wasn't easy. After his internship ended, he struggled to find work in the field. It wasn't until he met Kevin Sutton and Mayra Uribe at a Christmas party that he was given the chance to join the Kevin Sutton Show on IheartRadio and ESPN Orlando. While working on the show, Phil also started his own company, The Podcast Doctor, to help small businesses create and manage their own podcasts.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Phil saw an opportunity to expand his services and offer full-service podcast production to all podcasters. He calls it "escaping Podcast Purgatory," and it's a testament to his dedication to helping others find their voice and share it with the world. With his extensive experience and expertise, Phil Byrd is a leading authority in the world of podcasting, and he's always ready to lend a helping hand.
