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.
