How Leo Laporte Makes $1.5 Million Per Year from Podcasting

Who says podcasting is dead? Well, podcasting pioneer Leo Laporte says so. This is a strange thing for Leo to say since he makes $1.5 million a year from his TWiT podcasts. What’s even more amazing is Leo’s cost for generating that income (which is doubling every year) is only $350,000. I’ve participated in a few podcasts and created two guest podcast for Shoemoney in the past. They were fun to do and I really enjoy making them. However, I never thought there could be so much money in it.

In the following video, Leo shares his views on podcasting, the Internet and how the little guy is beating up big mainstream media. The talk, given at the Online News Association Conference in San Francisco on Friday, is 40 minutes long but well worth a listen as Leo covers some really good points that are sure to help you in your online money making goals.
