As your podcast evolves, you may find that you need to drastically adjust the length of your show. If you’re making this change suddenly, there are some things that you may consider as you work through the change; in this episode we discuss those things.
In this week’s Better Podcasting Download we say farewell to Podcon and share our opinion on the challenges that may have lead to its end.
Finally, Stephen shares some of his reasons for not fully recommending Pinecast as we run down some feedback from our Discord server. Plus Stephen shares a piece of NEW GEAR that he bought to try out.
