Daniel J. Lewis

Interesting cross-reference from 2 years ago: https://techcrunch.com/2015/07/18/the-future-of-podcasting/

Title: [Opinion] Castbox has not fixed the problem they created, and more Google Podcasts issues

Main Takeaway: Several podcasts still exist in Google Podcasts with a Castbox feed, instead of redirecting the feeds, they are simply broken. Also, I’ve discovered unintentional duplicates and omissions based on some podcaster oversights or Google’s method

 

Related Question posted in PR.com comments: Andy from photobizx.com: Hi Guys - I've submitted my Free podcast to Google and it's there and working fine but Google is also displaying my premium feed which I want to stop. Do you have any idea how to go about this?

Jonathan Bloom

 

Title: TalkShoe is Relaunching

Main Takeaway: The featureset sounds amazing: doing mixing, call-ins, even streaming straight to YouTube Live from their site. All things I wish I could offset, as I have to use two computers for one of my shows to achieve this. The catch: FREE, I see NOWHERE where it is mentioned how to pay. As a creator, I have had my share of my own content go away from free hosts. Some of my early stuff was on Blip.tv’s free plans. I don’t want to see content people create gone and missing forever.

Title: From Podnews: Radiotopia launch Everything is alive today, interviewing inanimate objects about their daily life.

Main Takeaway: This shows the beauty of podcasting. I actually felt an emotional connection to the can of cola, Louis. This is a fictionalized podcast, but it shows how you can connect with a podcaster/guest. This helps with serious topics as well. I’ve had my perspective shifted because I heard someone describe why they believe something.
