As podcasting technology advances, some see the RSS feed as a nuisance as opposed to a benefit of podcasting. Todd and Mike discuss why the RSS is still important, even in 2022. Apple divulged some information on iOS16 and ending a deal agreement, SiriusXM is up to additional advertising and more.

Question of the Week
Question: How do I get better at speaking into the microphone confidently? (from Reddit)
Answer: Best advice is to PRACTICE! Also, don’t think of the microphone. Think of the person (yes, pick one) that you are talking to. Speak as if you are talking to that imaginary person. If you are having a guest or a co-host, just talk to them like you would over a table at the bar. But again, the more you do it, the better you will get.
