Surviving The Podcast Privacy Wars [Episode 247]

As working podcasters, we can no longer ignore privacy issues.

But as a working podcaster. You're probably not a technologist or a lawyer, so you probably don't need to know all the vagaries. You just want to make sure you don't run afoul of the law.

So I’m offering up three common-sense steps to help make sure your podcast is on the right side of these coming podcast privacy wars, which are just getting started. 

  • Step 1: Understand Where Your Podcast May Have Possible Privacy Implications
  • Step 2: Disclose Those Players On Your Podcast’s Privacy Page
  • Step 3: Prepare For Change

That's how you survive this coming privacy war in podcasting. Not by jumping into the fray, or taking up pitchforks. But simply by making sure that you are doing your part in the process. And that's it. Let other people who have more passion than you fight this out. Unless you're the person that has the passion. If so, go for it! I’ll be making the popcorn. And more podcast episodes.
