It’s another battle of podcast media hosting versus podcast self hosting in our 150th episode as we run down the workflow on how to start a podcast (from a technical perspective). SP talks about media hosting and Stephen talks about self-hosting. We break this down into four main sections:
– Ground Work
– Setting Up Your Podcast
– Misc Information
In this week’s Better Podcasting Download, we review the new Spotify podcaster dashboard and what it means for people who are self-hosting their podcast and what you should do if you’re already a podcaster in Spotify.
Additionally in the Download, we talk about the new Skype 7 end of life.
During the Better Podback, we chat about a recent exchange with blubrry and their Podcast Directory of 600,000 shows (and how a lot of them are dead).
Finally, Stephen shares a personal story about how he’s STILL LEARNING 150 episodes later.
