The Advancing Podcasting Party Wants YOU! [Episode 186]

Announcing the official launch of the Advancing Podcasting Party! No, we’re not running for office. But we are working to make podcasting better. And we need your help!

Here’s what we believe:

  • We believe that technology should make podcasting better, not just easier.
  • We believe that new models are required to bring the 78% of non- and infrequent listeners into the fold.
  • We believe in and respect the inherent choices made by podcast listeners, podcast creators, and podcast enablers.

But talk is cheap, and it’s time for us to start working toward those goals. We’re going to start with a series of lightweight tools that any working podcaster can use -- with their current setup! -- to make their own podcast better.

Want to join us? We’re looking for talented developers, designers, and others who also share a deep love of podcasting.

We’re not trying to create a new podcast hosting company.

We’re not trying to build a huge unicorn startup that disrupts podcasting as we know it.

… and we need your help. Get in touch with me if that sounds interesting, OK? reaches me.
