BBC Radio is opening up more podcast IP to the rest of the world
Have you ever been annoyed that you’ve heard about a great sounding piece of BBC audio content, but you haven’t been able to access it because you’re not in the UK?
Good news, the BBC is opening up more of its content to the world. As well as seeking partnerships and deals with investors due to having their funding frozen.
Spotify’s Platform Specific Feature usage grows – Q&A and Polls
Do you know that you can offer Q&A features and polls on your podcast on Spotify? Even if it’s hosted elsewhere? I honestly didn’t realise until I saw this story that it’s available to outside hosted podcasts. 😀
But as people are learning about the features it seems that more people are using them.
Do you use them? Would you?
Here’s a list of countries that prohibit explicit content in Apple Podcasts
Ah, the good old explicit tag. The cause of much concern for newer podcasters. There are often concerns about a podcast’s reach being limited by using the tag, after all some countries ban anything using it outright.
Far more important IMO to be open with potential listeners if there may be content they find objectionable.
But how much can you limit your reach by using the tag? What countries ban anything with it? What countries make it opt-in?
