    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.

    Busting Podcasting Myths

    Busting Podcasting Myths

    We think it's important that podcasters entering the podcast space have an accurate idea of what they're getting into - that's why this week we're running down a bunch of podcast myths and giving our thoughts on why we think they're not true. As we go through the myths, we'll address the elements of truth that we think do apply to them.
    In this week's Better Podcasting Download we talk about a RØDECaster Pro firmware beta update, and Stephen gives his quick initial thoughts trying it out.
    Finally, in our Better Podback we have a listener who is continuing the quest for podcast awards.

    You Can Always Start A New Podcast

    You Can Always Start A New Podcast

    This week we're here with a message that we think is important for Hobby Podcasters to hear - it's ok to start a new show if your current show doesn't work out.
    In this week's Better Podcasting Download we talk about the Samsung App having podcasts, and why the idea of Samsung managing data different from Google on their Android phones is NOT a new one.
    Finally, in our Better Podback we have a listener who has seen an odd spike with their downloads coming from a specific destination.

Up-To-Date Information

Stephen and SP really speak from experience. With too many podcasts to count, they have plenty of notches in their belts. They know equipment, and they know how to help, and can relate to people who want to really hone the craft of podcasting. Thanks, guys! Keep it up.

Great Tips, Great Rapport!

The hosts really love what they do and organize their topics well. It’s refreshing to have a “podcast about podcasting” that isn’t trying to look at the angle to monetize. I’m working my way through all of the episodes and hope to launch my own podcast in a few months. With these two guys in my corner, I am beginning to think it might come true! Thanks, Stephen and SP for a great show.

Don't waste your time

Mindless chatter back and forth... too bad bc the hosts obviously have much knowledge to share, but they waste sooo much time trying to chat and be funny. Sorry guys, not funny. And btw kinda hard to take ya seriously when ur using a name like Stargate Pioneer or whatever childish moniker it is. Just not cool...
