SP as he is known to his close associates has dedicated his life to working within the system to bring geeky humor and science fiction points of view to the mindless minions in charge of providing the freedoms, security and infrastructure to our lives. Given the opportunity, SP would gladly slip through the Stargate to begin colonizing a new planet and living the Little House On The Prairie life or suit up to mine the solar system's asteroids for precious metals, gems and hidden signs of ancient advanced societies. SP has a lifelong fascination with geeky shows, advanced technologies, revolutionary science and apocalyptic tales.

Better Podcasting #160 – The Truth About Owning Your RSS Feed

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

This week we bust through the myths as we discuss what it means to “own your RSS feed”. We’ll run through common myths about “owning your RSS feed”, we’ll talk about why it matters, why it doesn’t matter, and we’ll run down some ways to maximize whatever method you choose to use for your podcast RSS feed location. Fun fact – did you know that this is DIFFERENT than self hosting vs media hosting? Yep, it’s true, so don’t think that this is another one of THOSE episodes.

In this week’s Better Podcasting Download, we talk about a recent email from Apple, and why it’s good if you’ve got the fear of rejection.

Finally, we take listener feedback, including a series of responses about everyone’s top podcast episodes.

    Tow things that just sounded weird:

    SP: “You don’t really lose your podcast, you just lose your subscribers.” For me, my subscribers ARE my podcast ( I get what he’s saying, it just sounded weird).

    SJ: “We’re nice guys and they got their domains back..” (unless of course, the domain was podfade.com – just saying…)

    Great show. Entertained me on the treadmill.
