Recently we’ve been quite busy with live demos, webinars and virtual events. Podcasters are no stranger to live recordings, and the industry is buzzing with collaboration and information sharing. The Blubrry team is hosting some webinars and demos this week and next.
Welcome Todd back this episode, as he and Mike chat about podcast listening being at an all time high, updates from SiriusSM and Google Play Music and more. And if podcasters themselves are looking to expand into different directories, we now offer Podcast Index and Amazon Music.
In podcasting, and as in life, what can go wrong, will go wrong. The important thing is how you react to it, that’s our best practice tip this episode.

- Where to find our documentation: create.blubrry.com. That site has a TON of information about Blubrry, PowerPress and our services plus a lot of general information about podcasting, including our Podcast Manual.
- WordPress sites have a Media Library, designed for photos or other files you want to be available on your site in pages or posts. This is not meant for podcast episodes/files. Blubrry hosted podcasts, using PowerPress, have another box lower in the post called “podcast episode”. That is where your podcast media goes, not the WordPress media library.
