218 Taking Out Your Wallet

Join the She Podcasts Super Squad for exclusive coaching and attention to you from Jess and Elsie for only $5 a month!

In case you’ve wanted to pitch an idea for a podcast American Public Media has your back! We discuss Jess’s awesome article on top podcasting lists and Facebook launching a podcast, which for some reason derails us into what it takes to take out your wallet and donate to a podcast. Lastly, we attempt to break down Facebook’s podcast marketing strategy, sprinkled with some disagreement.

Send us your feedback, email! We can’t wait to hear from you!
