Podcast Business Journal Launched – YP45

Newly launches, the Podcast Business Journal is the latest podcast newsletter and website to emerge, featuring a familiar name, Todd Cochrane. Why do you podcast? Not everyone is in the podcasting game for the same reason and we discuss some of those scenarios. We tell you why you might not want to take a holiday break, we give some reasons on why you should stick around when everyone else is taking off. Last but not least, help us help you, on this week's post-Thanksgiving episode of Your Podcast.

Welcome to Your Podcast, THE official Blubrry podcast!

Thanks for listening to the show and please subscribe at

We love our PowerPress users, please leave us a review 😀


Podcast Business Journal launches


Why do you podcast? Is it a hobby, to market your own products, because it's part of your job? Let us know the WHY behind your podcasting.
Taking a break for the holidays? We know it's tempting. Why this may not be a great idea, and we have reasons to back it up.


Podcasting terms 101:  Feed, “show”, episode, post, media file, listing, upload,  download, PUSH, PULL and many more. We could do a whole episode about terms that get mangled when someone talks about podcasting. Shawn, John, Dave and I will post a question that has mixed terms in it and all try to figure out what the person really meant. It’s really interesting what we get sometimes.
Blubrry terms 101: Account, listing, hosting/stats subscrition, etc. Can be a bit confusing as well.
Help us help you below!

READ the response you get from support all the way through. In most cases, we have covered your next question. Answer any questions support has, if you can. If you don’t know the answer, let us know that you at least read the question so we can clarify.
DON’T PANIC, it's important but it's just a podcast. Yes, it’s critical but the worst thing you can do is get in a hurry. 99% of issues can be fixed even if not right away.
We love to talk to you, BUT…..  please, do not put in a ticket, an email, a post on social AND call. Pick one (other than social media) and give us time to get to your question. This can cut down the time as we don’t have to sort through contacts that we have already taken care of.
Social media. It’s great for general questions and comments to the community but direct support is best done DIRECTLY. We can not discuss account specific questions on social. (Plus, we in support don’t have time to surf for questions on Facebook and the like 99% of the time).
As we said last episode. Be nice 😎 We will be nice to you.

Google Share Button and Apple On Holiday – YP44

We're getting closer and closer to holiday season and some might be surprised to hear it effects podcasting. Apple recently released it's holiday schedule, so those of you looking to start a new show, make a change, etc. please take note of the days they'll be off and when things will be slower in general. Remember, poor planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on theirs. Everyone deserves a break for the holidays. On the other side of things, Google Podcasts has added a share button to their app. Blubrry is moving some RSS feeds – if you're effected you received an email about it, so no worries for anyone. We've also been working hard on our IAB statistics certification, among other things happening here at Blubrry.

Please give us as much info as you can when you contact support. It saves a lot of back and forth.
We have noticed the level of rudeness when asking for help is on the increase. Just remember, we didn’t do anything to your podcast. This stuff can be confusing and we are happy to help, but being rude is, well just rude, and as much as we try, we are human. If someone is rude to us in support, it’s really hard not to be rude back. Bottom Line: There are humans behind all this online stuff. Cut us some slack!
