A colleague at work produces the podcast Listen In, Michigan, and now that it’s in its third year, I thought it was time to re-evaluate the hosting and distribution platform. The podcast is currently hosted on Soundcloud. I asked a student worker to do the initial research and present her findings.
After some discussion, we identified the comparative criteria for evaluating the possibilities:
- storage & duration of storage
- integration with popular podcast software, including Stitcher, iTunes, and Spotify’s new platform
- embedding and customization options
