I'm Heather Teysko. I produce podcasts for non profits and small businesses to make it easy to share your story with the world in a compelling way.

Share your story with the world.

I'm Heather. I tell stories online, and I work with small businesses and non profits to help them share their own stories with the world too.

Podcasts are one of the fastest growing ways to reach new patrons and customers. More people are listening to podcasts than ever. According to Edison Research, the number of American’s who listen to a podcast each week has grown 100% over the past four years, and 67 million American’s listen to a podcast every month. 

Plus, the podcast experience is much more intimate than simply reading an email or social media post. When people listen to your show, you are truly in their head.

You might know that your organization would benefit from reaching people through that market, but it can seem daunting. You might think:

  • It's really expensive
  • You need a ton of tech equipment
  • You need a professional audio engineer

But I can help! Not only can I teach you how to create and launch your own show, I can provide you with a full service production and do it for you. 

It's time to create your own show so you can start sharing your own unique story in a compelling way with people around the world. 

"For more than two decades I've been telling stories online. Let me help you share your story in a way that generates interest, lights you up, and is shared around the world."

I help people tell stories

Hi, I'm Heather

I built my first website in 1998, the Colonial American Gazette. It went on to become number one on Yahoo when people searched for American history.

My career started in London where I worked in online community building for an online membership site for women entrepreneurs. Through the twists and turns that life takes, I wound up in LibraryLand, first as a vendor, and then at California's largest library consortium for ten years, most recently as the Assistant Director. While there I launched several initiatives, including being the Califa lead for the enki eBook platform, the first statewide shared eBook collection on an open source platform owned by libraries, with content purchased directly from publishers. 

In 2009 I started my podcast on Tudor England, which has recently surpassed 2 million downloads. In 2015 I left my job to pursue my show, and in the past four years I started the Tudor Summit, the first online summit for Tudor history, the Tudor Radio Network, the first online radio network for Tudor history, and I've created TudorCon, the world's first festival for Tudor history enthusiasts.

But podcasting is my real love, and now I'm working with small businesses and libraries to help them launch their own shows, and tell their own stories in a way that draws people in from around the world.

I can produce your show. Or I can teach you how to do it yourself. 

Over the past twenty years I have built up millions of visitors to my websites, and over two million unique downloads of my podcast. I can help you create and launch a show from scratch yourself, or I can do it for you. 

Podcast Listenership is way up

More people than ever are listening:

A recent Pew Report shows that nearly 20% of Americans over the age of 13 have listened to a podcast in the past week. 

Edison Research says the number of American’s who listen to a podcast each week has grown 100% over the past four years, and 67 million American’s listen to a podcast every month.


But there is plenty of room for new shows! As of 2018, there were almost 50 million YouTube channels, 440 million blogs, but less than a quarter of a million podcasts listed in Apple Podcasts. That means for every podcast there are 800 blogs and 90 YouTube channels.
