From our first show to our latest hit, Tenderfoot TV has taken an independent minded boutique approach to developing, producing, and marketing our podcasts. We don’t think like an assembly line with the goal of mass production, instead every project has its own unique identity. From the style of content creation, to the cover art, to the original score. Our team specializes in making each podcast a unique experience. But boutique doesn’t have to mean small. Tenderfoot shows generate big numbers, which have earned us 5 consecutive #1 releases on the Apple Podcast charts.
