Better Podcasting #285 – SP’s Earth-Shattering RE320 Feedback / Media Host Segment: Podbean Review

We open this week with an update about the How I Saved My Podcast and Hobby Podcaster Profile segments.

In the Better Podnering this week topics include:

  • Stephen abandons testing the Zoom PodTrak P8
  • SP has some earth shattering comments about the RE320
  • Why it might make sense to have a dedicated podcast machine
  • Spotify is discontinuing the Music+Talk feature
  • Spotify is removing the creator tools
  • Mackie DLZ Creator XS

For this week’s media host segment, we give our review of Podbean.

Finally, in this week’s Better Podback, we recap a recent chat in our Discord about Podcasting 2.0 and Stephen recaps the distinction that he found that makes him of the opinion Apple is not yet supporting Podcasting 2.0 with their transcripts feature.
