This week we kick off our 2-episode annual tradition of talking about our personal podcast studio gear upgrades from the past year – this time it’s this Stephen edition. From audio chain maintenance, hardware replacements, special gifts, process improvements to software enhancements Stephen talks his hits and misses in 2018.
In this week’s Better Podcasting Download, we discuss how extensive the Pandora application form is and whether Pandora’s goals are aligned with your intent as a hobby podcaster.
Finally, we take listener feedback, including a series of responses about everyone’s most valued and most disappointing podcast gear purchases.
