Do You Want to Be Part of a Podcast Network? Featuring Jen Rodd

Podcast Industry Consolidation

While podcaster creators might be hunkering down to finish more episodes for the holidays, podcast companies have been busy buying - each other. Spotify is buying Megaphone and Wondery is dealing with multiple potential buyers. The podcast industry consolidation isn't necessarily a good or bad thing, but it's worth weighing the pros and cons of new acquisition and pondering what this means for the future. We have a unique outlook on this, as a hosting company, we provide advice on what podcasters should do in case their podcast host gets bought. In the early days of podcasting, we helped migrate many customers in short periods of time, to ensure they had no down time before their previous host went under, disappeared, etc. Thanks for joining us this episode ofPodcast Insider.
