Better Podcasting #160 – The Truth About Owning Your RSS Feed

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

This week we bust through the myths as we discuss what it means to “own your RSS feed”. We’ll run through common myths about “owning your RSS feed”, we’ll talk about why it matters, why it doesn’t matter, and we’ll run down some ways to maximize whatever method you choose to use for your podcast RSS feed location. Fun fact – did you know that this is DIFFERENT than self hosting vs media hosting? Yep, it’s true, so don’t think that this is another one of THOSE episodes.

In this week’s Better Podcasting Download, we talk about a recent email from Apple, and why it’s good if you’ve got the fear of rejection.

Finally, we take listener feedback, including a series of responses about everyone’s top podcast episodes.
