In this episode we discuss the idea of creating supplemental content related to your podcast’s topic. We’ll discuss some ideas of things that you may want to create, some considerations before you create extra content, and some ways that you can use it to compliment the content within your podcast.

Instead of a Better Podcasting Download, this week we have a special announcement (begins at 17:20) to do with our show that affects both our posted show, and our live-recording schedule.

Finally, in our Better Podback section we hear from listeners, including one who wrote in because SP made them angry.
