In this episode of Podcast Answer Man, I share an amazing new resource for securing a custom theme song made just for your podcast. I first heard of Todd & Emily Marriott, from Gifty Song, after they had created a custom theme song for my friend Dan Miller. After hearing it a few times, I fell in love with that song and I actually look forward to hearing it at the end of Dan's podcast each week.

I had been thinking about contacting Todd & Emily about creating a song for my Pursuing A Balanced Life podcast. Recently Todd and Emily actually reached out to me and wanted to know if I would would be interested in a theme song for my own podcast and was wondering if it worked out, would I be interested in promoting their custom song writing service to my community.

I was so happy with the process of working with them and beyond thrilled with the new custom theme song that they created, that I knew that I had to have them come on the show so that I could introduce them to you.
