Lorna Bremner – Closure Optional – PI-153



We’ve got lots to talk about with podcast statistics, new deals, such as Sound Exchange, and confirmations from Podcast Movement. We start the episode with a fantastic interview from Lorna, and close it with Todd and Mike joined by Barry Kantz, General Counsel and CFO of RawVoice/Blubrry. If you haven’t taken a look at the Blubrry site in a while, take a minute to review the changes we’ve made recently.

Thanks for joining us on this episode of Podcast Insider.

Blubrry Support

  • You must publish an episode before submitting to directories. The first rule in getting on a podcast directory or app is to HAVE A PODCAST — posted, public and ready to go. (no coming soon mode or private posts)
  • Stats: there is a delay between when you post an episode and when it will show in the stats.  It takes time for us to process the data and report it to you.
