Can’t-miss email newsletters
Nick Quah’s Hot Pod and Ben Cannon’s Constant Listener are two of my favourite round-ups on what’s new, interesting, and/or challenging in the podcasting world. Nick focuses more on the industry, business models, and so on, while Ben has more of a content focus. Also check out Podnews from James Cridland for a daily link roundup of industry developments.
And for journalists, bloggers, newsletter editors writing about podcasts, check out RadioPublic’s weekly newsletter Cued Up — highlighting new shows/seasons that are about to launch or recently debuted.
