Podbbang! – PCN 039

PCN iTunes artworkIn this episode, Shawn and Jen talk about a Korean podcasting platform that is more popular in Korea than iTunes is.  We debate the value of transcription of podcast episodes, and ponder if Shortcut (and services like it) can really make audio more sharable.

Ironically, we also get into a discussion about the importance of consistency in podcasting (despite the fact that we haven’t been super consistent.)
