Finding the right beat, at the right price, and knowing you are getting the right deal is something every new podcaster goes through. It is one of the first significant issues many people launching a podcast have to go through, and its usually in the dark. 
Most podcasters are not familiar with the music licensing industry and get an education on it very quickly to make sure they set up the show for success.
Today on the podcast, we are talking with the co-founders of Songs For Podcasting who are bringing a flashlight to the process and helping podcasters find the right beat, at the right price, and making sure they are protected. Our conversation goes into the weeds of this issue and what podcasters need to know before picking that first beat.
