Does Castbox Understand Podcasting? #211



Todd Cochrane of Blubrry and Rob Greenlee of Voxnest dig into the issue surrounding the podcast feed hijacking and mirroring of feeds that Castbox undertook to apparently swing Google search results to their site and the ramifications of this action. It’s time again for podcasters to protect the intellectual property of their highly valued RSS feed, and ensure that third parties do not hijack and or mirror them ever.

We have not seen any company do this in a long time but with the recent Google Podcast player this is likely to show up again as companies try to manipulate listeners onto their platforms versus their home sites.

Lots of ground covered here and some very good thought points on growing the industry and questions that we should be asking. He hammers home some of the same topics we have been raising on this show for a very long time. Plus reminds us of the common enemy we had at the beginning of the podcasting space. The question is who is that common enemy now.

We also review some services terms of services and want creators to start waking up and seeing what they are agreeing to. Plus an ongoing player in the space that is poaching in a way that shows desperation. Looking forward to your email feedback.
