We know your email is getting bombarded with all kinds of coronavirus information from every single business you’ve ever come into contact with in the entire world!
There are some of you that are ok with this, but there are also some of you that are kind of ’over it.’
We get it. We completely understand the information overload and have seen folks loudly complain about all the email spam, but we also know that in times of uncertainty, people do want information.
In lieu of adding more bulk to your inbox and still getting some info to you, this blog post will give you a bit of BTS of Libsyn, some key questions we’ve been asked as well as link you to a more formal response to any COVID–19 related Libsyn company FAQs.
If you’re an online service company why are you posting about COVID–19?
It’s funny how when we use online services, especially things like backup, hosting or even something like regular email we only think of it in online terms, but in order for those things to work humans have to be involved
Of course, not in the same way humans are involved in making your food at a restaurant, or delivering your mail, or doing your nails or running a talk show with a studio audience, but there are humans.
When the pandemic took hold, Libsyn’s President Laurie Simms sent an email that was very well received. In fact we even had folks creating social media posts of her words!

And yes, our mission to help get your voice out into the world, although inspiring, can feel like a very intangible sentiment but it also involves humans making it happen.
We have Developers.
We have Administrative Staff.
We have a Support Team.
We have a Podcasting Relations crew.
We have a Communications and Marketing squad.
All of us make sure in one way or another to keep you podcasting
Which leads me to the other question…
Are you ok?
Thanks for asking! Yes. We are ok.
The whole team is currently WFH! And, historically, we have had a handful of team members that have always been remote.
In 2018, the Libsyn Office had a bit of a remodel and for a few months the team had to work remotely, so we are quite prepared for the current situation – although of course, at that time, it wasn’t a shelter in place/quarantine type of situation
As a way to give you a bit of insight into who the humans behind libsyn are and how we are all doing with this whole WFH while in pandemic, we share the team below answering a couple of questions.

What about Libsyn’s business?
Great question! Now that you know a bit of the team and are wondering about how we are properly responding to COVID–19, we have an official FAQ page to stay informed and use as a reference.
Here’s the link.
We will continue to keep supporting you, your podcast, and your voices as we rediscover and evolve the podcasting space once again. This is where podcasts and podcasting excels. Stay well. We are all in this together.
