10 Reasons Why You Are Not In Control Of Your Podcast [Episode 87]

  • Computer hardware
  • Marketing services

Any one of those going south could cause major problems for your podcast. Perhaps even prohibiting some (or all) of your audience to consume your content.

Are you prepared for when the inevitable happens?
