Where are we headed? #237

Rob Greenlee and Todd Cochrane discuss where the podcasting space is headed after all the developments of the past few weeks. A lot of nothing or should independent podcasters start to get concerned? We are back in the studio this episode, but our next show will be live from Podfest at 12pm EST on Saturday most likely Audio only but we will have a lineup of guest. I expect it to be a fun show.

Money Money Money #236

Spotify spends 230 Million on Gimlet, Supposedly 50 Million on Anchor (WOW) and Chinese based Himalaya rolls in with another cool 100 million. What does this mean for the 95% of the podcast community? Did Spotify pay for a whole lot of nothing or did the number of dead shows not play into what they paid. Who exactly is Himalaya going to license? I would recommend everyone read the fine print. Get our take on today’s show.
