What is Podcast U.

At Podcast U., we want to take you from confused to confident. This online school was founded to help you transform your podcasting dream into a reality. Through our courses and elite Podcast U. Mastermind, we guide beginning and growing podcasters through their biggest struggles.
Podcast U. was founded by Monica Packer and Rachel Nielson, two former educators who bonded over podcasting as SAHMs who decided that "the more the merrier" when it came to podcasting.

About Us

We are two moms who had a crazy dream of starting a podcast. With no social media platforms behind us or marketing/business skills in our tool belts, we built our shows from nothing to now surpassing a combined 2 million downloads.

Hi, I'm Rachel

a podcaster for moms.

I live in Idaho with my dentist husband, and my two miracle children. 

I taught English in high school, stayed home once my oldest was adopted, and a few years after my daughter came along, I knew I had something else calling.  It was a podcast.

My show, 3 in 30 Takeaways for Moms is designed to help moms create more meaning in motherhood.  But I have benefitted the most from it!

I love connecting with and learning from other women.  I have learned that cultivating my own gifts via podcasting has blessed me and my family infinitely more than if I had continued to sit on the idea.

In my free time, I love taking daily walks, reading, and drumming up more ideas for the podcast. I'm so happy you're here!

Hi, I'm Monica

a podcaster for recovering perfectionists.

I live in Northern California with my accountant husband, and our four children. 

I taught English in middle school, stayed home once my oldest was born, and a few years after third child came along, I knew something major had to change in my life: I had to try, for trying's sake.

My show, About Progress, is designed to help recovering perfectionists live the life they want by practical transformation. My show has changed MY life!  

I absolutely adore seeing people in my community progress one messy step at a time.  I believe in sustainable, slow growth.  It's been my life lesson that to really get better, it has to be done practically. 

In my free time, I love exercising outside, baking, reading, and serving my podcast community. I'm so glad to be serving you!
