Last week we posted an article to GonnaGeek highlighting how Google announced that Hangouts on Air is going away soon. As Hangouts on Air (HOA) has been a staple that we’ve highlighted many times on this show, we thought that we’d do an episode where highlight some of the reasons why Hangouts on Air was successful, some considerations for moving forward, and things to prioritize when choosing a new service. Before we get there though, we kick off our show with a pre-launch How I Saved My Podcast story, and an update from one listener/viewer about their “One Thing” goal from 2019.
In this week’s Better Podcasting Download, we discuss a Time article about “Big Money” coming in to podcasting.
Finally, in this week’s Better Podback, we take listener feedback including a poll about sunscreen and podcasting.
