The Battle to Keep Podcasting Open and to Educate New Podcaster #545

In this episode, hosts Todd Cochrane and Rob Greenlee dive deep into what defines a podcast for listeners and creators alike. They emphasize the crucial need for podcasters primarily to understand and value the open RSS system, which ensures an open ecosystem. Meanwhile, they bring attention to the growing trend of YouTube creators labeling their shows as podcasts, despite the lack of an RSS feed for syndication. This practice puts those creators at risk of losing their entire audience should YouTube decide to de-platform, de-prioritize, etc. Todd and Rob stress educating podcasters about maintaining open podcasting standards since 2004 when gatekeepers controlled the media space. While at the same time, supporting audiences on all platforms gives the diverse nature of podcast syndication. They also play around with Midjourney at the show’s end for some comical episode art.
