The Do the Woo Podcast
The Do the Woo podcast 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.
At the end of 2017, I started Do the Woo back up as a new podcast and asked Brad Williams from WebDevStudios to join me as co-host in a twice-monthly show.
At the beginning of 2019, Do the Woo took the big leap of going weekly, and added two new co-hosts: Jonathan Wold from WooCommerce and Mendel Kurland from Nexcess. This brought new vitality and, of course, more perspectives to Do the Woo.

Do the Woo – Community and News Site
Which brings us to the present. As you already know, Do the Woo is now all about community and news. The podcast now 6 episodes per month. News has become a larger part of the site. In fact, there are just too many cool things going on here to list.
If this is the first time to the site, I hope you take a moment to peruse what this site brings to you as a Woo builder. If there is something you think I’ve missed, let me know. I’m here for the community.
The Faces Behind Do the Woo
BobWP – Publisher, podcast and Founder of the Do the Woo Podcast
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.
I started using WordPress in 2007. The BobWP brand was born in 2010 and, over the years, I spent time training and consulting for WordPress as well as writing tons of content for this site.
Between those early years of WordPress, I dove back into eCommerce a bit more by starting a membership site in 2008 at, 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.
When WooCommerce was released in 2011, eCommerce became a bigger part of my life. I have taught and written a lot about WooCommerce, and now I am taking on the task of connecting the WooCommerce builder community. I hope you will join me.
In 2016, after having worked with WooCommerce for 5 years, I started to incorporate more content around it. The rest is history and in early 2019 I moved to a complete focus of WooCommerce. Today I bring you the definitive Do the Woo community and news site.
