What do we think are the key elements of a hobby podcast? This week we discuss some of the elements that we think are specifically important for hobby podcast – and some of the ones that we think where hobby podcasters have an advantage over professional podcasters.

In this week’s Better Podcasting Download, we discuss a change with Discord – it now has threads!

Finally, we take listener feedback, including a listener who uses Dynamite on their podcast.

Better Podcasting #255 – Hobby Podcasting Isn’t Free Podcasting

Facebooktwitterredditmail

If podcasting is your hobby, does that mean that it’s free? The answer is no, hobby podcasting isn’t free podcasting. This week we discuss some of the challenged that make it hard to try to podcast for free, and where it might benefit to try to pay a little money, and where you can try to save a buck or two.

In this week’s Better Podcasting Download, we discuss how Automaticc is buying Pocket Casts, and we speculate what this means for the future.

Finally, we take listener feedback, including a listener who encountered an issue with their recording this week, and we have a listener who was invited by Facebook to turn on their new podcast feature.

SP and Stephen hold down the fort while Chris is away, but we shake up things a bit as we have a lengthy conversation about the kick off to Space Tourism with the recent Virgin Galactic space flight. We’ll discuss our thoughts about watching the launch, the launch stream, whether we think they actually went to space, and we discuss the upcoming Blue Origin space tourism flight.

We also have a discussion about the Black Widow box office number (no spoilers) and what we think this means about the return to the movie theater, and whether the numbers should even be counted or not.

Finally, we’ll also chat briefly about there being more confusion with Google Meets vs Google Duo.
