7. Podcasting's darkest timeline

The one in which we say goodbye.


Brendan just bought his first house! He’s super excited and has a bunch of remodels planned.

But wait, goodbye?

Burnout and self-preservation have brought Mark and Brendan to a point where they need to put BitRate away, at least for a while. We’ll see.

  7. Podcasting’s Darkest Timeline
Now what?

Well, as we learned from this past series, it’s a good idea to plan ahead and think through if it’s right to start a new podcast or project.

…So mostly likely we’ll start a new podcast right away.

Oh look at this!

And for one last time, until next time, Mark and Brendan pontificate about the future of the podcast industry.
