Better Podcasting #249A – We’ve had a delay / What was the bigger podcast news of the week?

This is just a quick update as we’ve had to delay the recording/release of the next episode (250) of Better Podcasting for personal matters; in this episode Stephen gives you a quick update of why. However, it wouldn’t be an episode of Better Podcasting without some form of podcast discussion. As such, Stephen does a mini-edition Better Podback discussing two key topics this week – Facebook developing a player, and Anchor getting in to the paid subscription game.

Keep your eyes on our social media to find out the latest on what our release schedule will be for this week’s Better Podcasting and better Podcasting: Live Chat.
