The Do the Woo Podcast and this site is produced, owned and operated by BobWP and is not affiliated with WooCommerce or Automattic.
The Do the Woo podcast originally started in March, 2016. After 25 episodes, later that same year we decided to change it to the WP eCommerce Show to cover the broader space of WordPress and eCommerce.
But I missed the Woo so at the end of 2017 I started it back up as a new podcast and asked Brad Williams to join me as co-host.
Since then it has been a twice monthly podcast where we bring on a guest each week, learn more about their work and experiences with WooCommerce and also conversation around news stories in both the WooCommerce and eCommerce space.
Today, the site and the podcast focuses more on the WooCommerce community and news around WooCommerce weekly. We want to share with you their thoughts, what they are doing and what cool things they bring to the table plus throw in the news.
The Faces Behind the Do the Woo
BobWP – Founder and Co-Host of Do the Woo
As I kid, I never thought of being a podcaster. Probably because it didn’t exist. But I was fascinated with radio.
I ran a marketing company prior to my entrance into the WordPress space and my first eCommerce endeavor was in 2004 with a stock photography site. It was an interesting experience and I will just leave it at that.
After that initial step into WordPress, shortly afterwards, I dove back into eCommerce a bit more by starting a membership site in 2008 as well, a time before membership sites really were catching on. And obviously with the technology nowhere at where it is today, it took us a good 9 months to develop the site.
And when WooCommerce was released in 2011, eCommerce became a bigger part of my life. I have taught and written a lot about WooCommerce, and I don’t see that ending anytime soon.
