Stephen is away on vacation this week and so we have special guest Jen Rhodes (from Anomaly Podcast) here to talk about her experiences with running a hobby podcast for 12+ years.
Jen if half of the duo behind the sci-fi/fantasy podcast Anomaly Podcast which was created in 2007. Over the run of the show, Jen and her co-host Angela have undergone a variety of changes both to do with their hobby podcast and in their personal lives.
In this week’s Better Podcasting Download we talk about an article called “The Three E’s Of Podcasting” and discuss whether or not we think it’s applicable to podcasting.
Finally, we take listener feedback in our Better Podback we discuss chapter markers.
