About WPwatercooler Network

Join use by the watercooler!

The global WordPress community is supportive, passionate, and generous, and in 2012, WPwatercooler was born out of those qualities. (There's more in this post from 2014 about the WPwatercooler's beginnings.)

We’re here to share our expertise with the wider community. Our listeners come from a range of backgrounds, so our content is just as diverse.

  • Watch the Smart Marketing Show (formerly WPblab) where we chat with a digital marketing expert.
  • Watch WP Watercooler for info about what plugins you should install on your website.
  • Watch Dev Branch for more in-depth conversations about advanced functions, innovative solutions, and just plain fun geeking out over all things development-related.
  • Coming soon: The Query

Fridays at 11:00 am Pacific
