Blubrry’s New Statistics Are Here – PCI 282
Have you taken a look at your Blubrry podcast statistics today? You’ll find a whole new interface and for some users (advanced), a few new metrics. Many of you know we’ve been working on this user experience release for a long time and we could not be more excited to share it with you all. We start out the episode with some Blubrry news this time, and get to industry news after as well as a best practice — research your titles — and a pro tip about co-hosts.
A big thanks to Yndia Lorick-Wilmot for joining us as podcaster of the month and stick around for her interview with Todd. Thanks for listening and let us know what you think about the stats! You might just win a year’s worth of hosting for doing so.

Question of the Week
Question: What is the correct bitrate vs. file size for podcasting mp3’s?
Answer: That is up to you, but the standard is 64kbps in mono or 128kbps in stereo. 64kbps will give you 1/2mb per minute of audio and you can double that for 128kbps.
Got a question you’d like us to answer on the show? Drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (audio, text, video) and we may use it.
