Marcus Couch


In this episode, Marcus Couch and I are joined by Kyle Maurer, Co-founder of Real Big Marketing. Maurer grew up in rural Michigan working on farms without much knowledge of the IT industry. He registered an account on after discovering a WordPress meetup in his local area.

During the meetup, Maurer discovered how powerful WordPress is. The knowledge he gained motivated him to dive deep into WordPress and eventually start his own development agency.

We discuss his most recent project, WordCrash, which allows people in the WordPress community to offer travelers a place to stay for free. We also discuss his involvement with WordPress.TV where Maurer volunteers to moderate videos, contribute code to the site, and coordinate projects. Last but not least, we discuss WP Roundtable, a weekly WordPress podcast hosted by Maurer and a panel of WordPress personalities.
