Back in May 2015 (in Episode 81), we tackled the idea of building a community around your podcast. However, since recording that, a lot has changed with both community structures, our experiences and community platform availability – that means it was time to revisit this topic. In this episode we’ll talk about the considerations for building a podcast community, some best practices if you’re going to, and our personal suggestion of platforms to try to build a podcast community in.
In this week’s Better Podcasting Download, we revisit last week’s discussion on Libsyn’s IAB certified statistics to share the further details that SP mentioned last week on the show, and some new information received after Libsyn’s Rob Walch reached out to us.
