Online Course Masters Podcast with Phil Ebiner

I was lucky enough to sit down with my friend Phil Ebiner

I was recently featured in the Online Course Masters podcast. I sat down with my friend Phil Ebiner to catch up and talk about life because we haven’t seen each other in awhile and of course about creating online courses.

Before we get to the podcast episode I want to tell you about Phil Ebiner and Online Course Masters. 


Online Course Masters

Phil has always been one of those instructors in the community that I looked up to. In 2016 I was lucky enough to attend Udemy live and I met Phil along with a number of awesome instructors. In 2017 Phil started a podcast called Online Course Masters and this was the mission: 

Online Course Masters is a podcast that gets inside the minds of online course creators successfully creating and selling courses on marketplaces like Udemy and Skillshare, as well as self-hosting courses on their on sites with tools like Teachable, Thinkific, and others.

It is always great to hear what is and what isn’t working for instructors from around the world. I have picked up so many tips and tricks from this podcast and it has been an invaluable resource. I look at podcasts the same way I do books. If I can pick up 1 good idea, then it was worth my time. When Phil asked me to be on his podcast I was blown away.

Online Course Masters: Episode 48

I didn’t even realize this until I sat down to write this article but I was episode #48. That number has been one of those numbers that have just kind of stuck with me through my life and has been a lucky number for me. Phil and I were supposed to do this episode a long time ago but life happened and we just kept missing each other. It seems fate had a little something to do with us finally getting together to record this episode. If you don’t want to watch the video version below you can subscribe and listen to it on iTunes.


The first thing I noticed was that my audio didn’t come out great. I am in the middle of rebuilding the office and trying to perfect my audio so please bear with me. Did you enjoy the podcast?

Question: What are some of your favorite podcasts out there? I live on podcasts and I am always looking for new ones to listen to so please comment below. 

PS: Thank you, Phil, for creating this awesome podcast!

Hi, I’m Dan Vega. I am a Software Engineer living just outside of one of my favorite places in the world, Cleveland, Ohio. I am a self-taught programmer who firmly believes that you can accomplish anything in this life if you put your mind to it, roll up your sleeves and are willing to put in the work.

I have been writing software for over 18+ years now and I use my knowledge, passion, and influence to help other developers achieve their goals. I teach online and currently, have over 30,000 students.

When I am not writing software, I have a number of things that really keep me busy. I love to read books, listen to podcasts and watch online courses. I have a real thirst for knowledge and it consumes me every single day of the week. I also love to run & lift heavy weights which keep me balanced throughout the week.
