Jeff Townsend

Podcasts are everywhere. They are part of our daily lives. While we are at the gym, on our way to work, chores around the house, or sometimes just comforting background noise, we always have our favorite content ready to go; True crime, DIY, self-help, spooky stories, and conspiracies all neatly packaged in easy to search UI on our favorite platforms. But, not that long ago in the grand scheme of things, this burgeoning new wave of content was difficult to access. Resources and topics were few and far between and figuring out how to get your creation out there and discovered were new and uncharted territories. This week’s guest on The Malliard Report was on the forefront of that expedition. Today, Jim welcomes the Godfather of podcasting, Jeff Townsend.
“Jeff has been creating content for over 15 years, with over 1.5 million views/listens/downloads across various platforms. After taking a break for several years to focus on his career in Marketing, he is now back in the mix of things with this new passion project: Indie Podcaster Jeff, AKA Podcast Father, interviews content creators of all stripes on Indie Podcaster podcast. What is it they’re passionate about? What drives them? His goal is to highlight and promote creators and artists. Some may be well known; others are lesser known but just as spirited. Jeff is bringing you the stories of independent creators on Indie Podcaster. Join him on this journey, as the Indie Podcaster.”
This is a fun episode because you get to peek into the past and understand what it was like to blaze a trail of a medium that was still in its infancy. You can follow Jeff’s work over on his website or catch him on Twitter @podcast_father. For all things Malliard, head over to for merch, past shows, and the live chat every Tuesday 9 P.M. EST.
