    Video Shows, Podcasts, Or Both?

    Perhaps it's because we do one ourselves, but we're often asked about adding a video companion to a podcast. A lot has changed since we last covered this, so we're taking a look at how video stacks up in the world of podcasting under a 2022 lens. 
    In this week's Better Podcasting download, we discuss YouTube creating advice for podcasting on YouTube.
    In our Better Podback, we round up some listener feedback including one listener who has an editing conundrum.

Great Podcast

This podcast was very informative and helpful. I already left a comment on a YouTube video, but I have to say that their advice should be taken for new podcasters. This comes from The Unfinished Basement Podcast! Check us out.
