In this episode, listen to what the podcasting ready microphones of the new 2019 MacBook Pro sound like. And staying on that same topic, we discuss the mics we use and the processing workflow for the show. We also cover the latest Apple News including their new hire, plus the latest email sent out to podcasters. We answer and comment on a very interesting question what would be the impact and slowdown for indie podcasters if there’s an economic downturn? And lastly Rob dives into nuanced discussion about protecting the privacy of podcast listeners.

And some fun stats about raw percentage growth…
