Shownotes are also a little bit different than usual, not all of what was mentioned is linked below, because OMGosh it was A LOT.

Tim Ferriss did that one experiment where he did sponsors vs donation and it was a quick fail

Apple Podcasts bankrolling original content? Aka rumor “Executives at the company have reached out to media companies and their representatives to discuss buying exclusive rights to podcasts, according to the people, who asked not to be identified because the conversations are preliminary. Apple has yet to outline a clear strategy, but has said it plans to pursue the kind of deals it didn’t make before.”
