Better Podcasting #274 – Expanding Outside Your Normal Community

If you’re trying to grow your podcast, the chances are there may be a point where you want to explore outside of your current community/social circles. In this episode we discuss some considerations to be had if you’re looking to explore other communities to help grow your podcast.

In this week’s Better Podcasting Download we chat about the price increases with Pocket Casts, and we speculate some of the impact it could have with podcasters.

Finally, we run down some Better Podback from the last couple weeks including one listener asking ChatGPT about their podcast, a follow-up to Stephen’s OBS issue and some listeners having backups!
