Better Podcasting #248 – You Can Always Start A New Podcast

Facebooktwitterredditmail

This week we’re here with a message that we think is important for Hobby Podcasters to hear – it’s ok to start a new show if your current show doesn’t work out.

In this week’s Better Podcasting Download we talk about the Samsung App having podcasts, and why the idea of Samsung managing data different from Google on their Android phones is NOT a new one.

Finally, in our Better Podback we have a listener who has seen an odd spike with their downloads coming from a specific destination.
