Facebook and Spotify and Apple Podcasts, Oh My!
This week we’re speaking broadly and in response to last weeks multiple bombshells on the monetization and partnership fronts. Apple Podcasts will now allow podcasters to charge for podcasts, and Facebook has partnered with Spotify to create a new podcast-inclusive social audio feature within the Facebook ecosystem. Looks like things are getting real on Real Talk Podcasting this week.
