As a young man growing up in Salt Lake City, Utah, Spencer Wright had dreams of going into medicine. Spencer graduated from the University of Utah with a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology and a combined MBA/Master of Heath Administration from Ashford University. After college, he became a published research and scientific author, but has since found what he believes to be his true calling in the field of communication and podcasting.

Rather than a simple, single show, earlier this year, Spencer Wright created a complete podcast network called The Pod Mill. With a studio space and equipment to rival any recording studio, in short order and with his highly skilled team of the industries finest technicians, The Pod Mill has become the largest independent podcasting network in the state of Utah.

In addition to editing and producing the other network shows, Spencer has built his experience on both sides of the mic and currently hosts two podcasts himself: “The 3-Bit Gamer Show” all about video games and “WTH: What the Health”, described as, “A forum for healthcare thought leadership where major healthcare questions and topics are up for debate.”

Spencer Wright says he believes in the medium of podcasting and that podcasting represents the future of oral traditions and communication that have existed since the beginning of civilization. Spencer designed The Pod Mill to provide its clients with an efficient and concise methodology in order to go from an idea to a full-fledged and successful podcast that is peerless in audio quality and production value. He provides all the necessary steps and tools to create an ideal show or improve upon a current show and elevate it to the next level. The Pod Mill embodies a hard-working and thoughtful approach to podcasting which is continuing to move the medium forward. Hmmm… maybe the “How Did You Get Started Show” should be on The Pod Mill network!

Spencer is one of those rare, unassuming, quietly brilliant, yet humble guys who has big visions and big skill to go along with it. I think you’re going to love his story. When he’s not empire building, Spencer says he enjoys time with his wife, their son, and their two French Bulldogs named Marge and Homer. Finally, he enjoys time with friends and communing with nature and all kinds of outdoor recreational activities.
