The future of podcasting
Really enjoying this!
As a podcaster, I love what Chartable offers and I really enjoyed the first episode of Chartable Radio. Dave and Harish offer a behind-the-scenes look at what’s happening in the ever-changing world of podcasting and it’s very interesting. I’ve subscribed and am looking forward to future episodes!
This review is partly for the podcast and partly for the service itself. Chartable looks to be an indispensable service for podcasters. I recommend it to all of my podcast friends and spend some time gonna down the rabbit hole on the site.
The podcast helps flesh the service out even more. I’m going to keep listening and you should do the same.
Essential for podcasters
Trust me, this show is essential if you make, produce, listen to, or advertise on podcasts. (I may be biased, though.)
