I‘m back, ready to end the week with some news and insight you can take into the weekend to help make your podcast better.

The major news this week is that Apple Podcasts is still a mess, but there’s also some great stuff here to help you hone your craft and build a thriving podcast community, so let’s get into it.


Why your podcast needs a website

The BBC used to wipe its tapes so that they could be reused. We lost countless hours of classic TV and radio to that practice, and if you don't have a website, you're risking the same for your podcast.

That’s all I have for you this week, except to say that I never got the chance last week to congratulate Helen Zaltzman, Olly Mann and Martin Austwick on their 400th and final episode of Answer Me This!. I started listening to the show towards the back end of 2007 and although I’ll admit to having dropped off just last year, they remain one of the most substantial and underusing contributors to British podcasting.

All three of them are continuing to do great work individually, so I wish them all the luck and love in the world.
