Billed as The Professional WordPress Podcast, WPcast.fm is the latest entrant into the WordPress podcasting scene. Produced by Doug Yuen and David Hehenberger, the show focuses on the professional aspects of WordPress such as how to be a better business consultant, how to hire great software developers, and the best ways to take payments with WordPress. The duo releases a new episode every Wednesday morning at 8AM Eastern.

The Origins Of WPcast.fm

Yuen and Hehenberger met in Bali a few years ago along with a few other independent entrepreneurs. Since then, the pair have kept in touch while at times, their travel paths have crossed. Earlier this year, Hehenberger approached Yuen with the idea of starting the podcast. “We were already talking plenty of WordPress business with each other, and we’ve seen the benefits of podcasting, so we figured it would be a great way for us to share our knowledge and engage with the WordPress community,” Yuen said.

The format of the show is based on the podcast Startups For The Rest Of Us, which focuses on specific actionable information instead of interviews or broad business strategy. Each episode is between 20-30 minutes long. Despite Hehenberger’s strong accent, he’s easy to understand. Those who value their time will appreciate that the show is to the point and doesn’t contain filler material.

Putting Listeners First

Yuen told me they have a bunch of ideas for upcoming shows but ultimately, they want to know what their listeners want to hear. Yuen said, “We’ll try to put listener suggestions at the top of the queue. If you have any suggestions, we’re all ears.” While some topics cover a broad audience like backups, they also go into technical detail with plugins and themes. In future episodes, Yuen and Hehenberger will go into detail about their own products, services, and experiences with running a business.

The following is episode six of WPcast. If you like what you hear, consider subscribing to the show on iTunes.

  1. Thanks for the shout, Jeff.

    “Despite Hehenberger’s strong accent, he’s easy to understand.” Haha, I’m glad that is the case. Maybe I sound a bit like Arnold Schwarzenegger (I’m Austrian too). =)


    • I wouldn’t go THAT far :) Accents are good though. A lot of people say I have a midwestern accent. Most of the time I can’t even understand what I’m saying lol.

  2. Jeff: The “Startups For The Rest Of Us” link piqued my interest. However, it’s a dead link.

  3. I had the pleasure of meeting Doug at our latest WordCamp Philly. Great guy, and very knowledgeable. I’ll definitely be listening in.
