Lots of things happening in the podcasting community this week, including Podcast Evolutions in Los Angeles. With Todd attending the event, Angelo Mandato, CIO of Blubrry, stepped in during his absence. Mike and Angelo talk about Chartable’s IAB certification, Luminary and Spotify and more. Lots of WordPress discussion, as we recently released PowerPress 8.2. And a great interview between Todd and CJ Boat of Geek I/O.
This week on Podcast Insider…

- File names: Make sure each one of your episode file names is unique. If you don’t use a new name, the new file will overwrite the old file for one thing and the stats will collect under the old file name mixed with the first time you used that filename.
- Reminder: Blubrry offers 2 versions of RSS feeds. 1) WordPress (self-hosted or PowerPress Site) 2) Blubrry.com. Select how you’d like to publish in the Hosting Settings in the Blubrry.com Podcaster Dashboard. You cannot use both.
