In the year 2023 there are a lot of places you may consider cross-posting your podcast to. Is it easy? Is there any ongoing maintenance? Should you let your media host do it for you? These are some of the areas we discuss in our conversation about posting to multiple distribution destinations.
In this week’s Better Podcasting Download, we express our disagreement with the tone of a Bloomberg article about YouTube Podcasts.
Finally, in this week’s Better Podback we round up audience feedback, including one video submission that was so good that we had to talk about (even if it doesn’t make much sense for our audio listeners). We also have a follow-up about one listener that we previously mentioned who has a TikTok account for their podcast.
