John Viviani II

The Man Behind JLewis.

Podcasting as we know it began in 2005. Broadcast media has never been the same. Admittedly I wasn't the first to jump in starting his podcast journey in late 2012. An avid woodworker and automobile restoration tech, he started by listening to Wood Talk, one of the oldest woodworking podcasts on the web.

I began listening to more and more podcasts about podcasting, being the tinker, the kid who likes to take things apart and see how they work.  By 2015, I was well on his way to starting his own podcast. Finally, with a launch in mid-2017 No Driving Gloves was born. 

I am an active member of-

  • The BIG Podcast Mastermind Group

  • The Podcast Editors Academy

  • The Podcast Academy

I recently completed legendary podcast Editor Steve Stewart's editing class.


In 2017 I also launched Magic City Podcasters, the largest and most active podcast group in Birmingham, AL. Find us on MeetUp or FaceBook and join into one of our monthly online meetings.

Before this deep dive into podcasting, full time in January 2019, I was heavily involved in detailed concour restoration and preservation of automobiles, and museum artifacts ranging from statues to Saturn V and Titanic artifacts. Along with developing and marketing large scale events for a major museum. SO my life has been dedicated to educating, marketing, and detail-oriented work. What JLewis Productions can offer you is all of those qualities as needed to be certain your podcast stays enjoyable and gets heard, with as little or as much assistance as needed.

This has been a  learning experience all the way. From equipment choices, in an ever-changing market, to marketing and promotion, to the technical ends of podcast production (recording, interfacing, editing, distribution, Legalieze, Apple) I have experienced it all and if I haven't the network I have built by being in the podcast space more than half its life, I know where the answers can be found.

We all start somewhere. 1st studio, HP Laptop, AudioTechnica MTX-40 Headphones and AT-2005 Microphone
