Better Podcasting #173 – When Your Source Material Ends

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

Sometimes you might find that your podcast’s source material is no longer available. If this happens to you, there are several decisions that have to be made for the future in the show. This week, we discuss some of these decisions, and Stargate Pioneer provides actual examples of decisions that he is making for two of the shows that he currently participates in.

In this week’s Better Podcasting Download, we discuss recent Patreon changes, and what it means for the hobby podcaster.

After we take your feedback in our Better Podback, we close the show with a #Podwarming moment that is special to both of us.
