All the predictions discussion for 2024, including how the election year and podcast advertising intersect and expectations about social media podcast marketing and growth. A free speech soapbox from Rob; from RSS to newsletters; the video to podcast RSS feed workflow; discussing the casualties of the podcasting bloodbath, yikes! Details about a 301 redirect plus geographic and user agent and a bit of a deep dive into the Apple Podcasts iOS 17 update and how that affected download numbers!
