Are pods still hot?

Nick Quah joins us to discuss the current state of the podcasting industry.

The podcast world has seen tons of big money moves in the past month. From Apple and Spotify releasing in-app paid subscriptions, to Facebook building its own podcast player, to media giants buying the rights to big name shows. 

Today, we’re doing a temperature check on the podcasting industry with Nick Quah, the writer of Hot Pod newsletter. Nick is telling us his takes on how new podcast platforms compare to Patreon, the influx of celebrities in the space, and the companies who are controlling the majority of the industry’s capital.
