This week we conclude our arc on introductory episodes, this time talking all about episode 1. We’ll discuss how to balance your episode one with your episode zero, ways to make your episode one carry a punch, and some things to consider for your first episode if you’re not going to have an episode zero.
In this week’s Better Podcasting Download, we get SP’s take on Libsyn adding a destination for Radio.com, and we talk about how Apple is making changes to their categories.
Finally, we run down this week’s feedback including another deal that is saving hobby podcasters money.
