September 23, 2021

Spotify vs. Apple Podcasts, a seemingly never-ending debate in the podcast world. As the number of podcasts launched and released has gone up in the past few years, as had the number of podcast listeners. One analyst recently claimed Spotify is catching up to Apple Podcasts, when it comes to podcast directory and we (MacKenzie filling in for Mike) just don't see it. Tune in to hear why.

Question(s) of the Week
Question: Does Blubrry support video podcasting?
Answer: Yes! Files are larger so you will need to be on an advanced plan or Pro Hosting. All the functionality is there in all of our hosting plans for video, it just depends on your file storage needs.
