Podcasting News: Libsyn 5 beta 1.1 and Audacity privacy troubles

Rockin’ Libsyn Podcast: Making Ways

Just this year, I relaunched Making Ways with a new focus on the art of music.

I’m interviewing bands together with their visual art collaborators for album covers, posters, and videos, about the intersection of art and music.

I love music so much, am a longtime illustrator for bands, and wanted to find a way to share my unique perspective on how art amplifies the impact of music while elevating some incredible musicians and visual artists.

Khruangbin, Nada Surf, Shamir, Sad13, Fruit Bats, Hazel English, Ra Ra Riot, and Deafheaven are all part of our new season. I’m also illustrating original festival-style artwork to launch the series and concert-style “gig” posters for each episode (as well as square versions for podcast feeds).

edison research podcast listener survey

The Edison Research Podcast Listener Study is a new, free-to-use template to craft your own audience survey. We’ve put together the best practices and most common questions both producers and advertisers have into a questionnaire template that you can use to get consistent, regular feedback from the people that matter the most–your audience.

A notice about download reports

Listeners on iOS 14.6 may experience an issue that prevents automatic downloads for new episodes from completing in the background. Although listening is unaffected, this issue can reduce downloads reported by third-party hosting providers and will be resolved with a software update, which also includes enhancements to Library, in the coming weeks.

If you have any questions, contact us.

Clarification of Privacy Policy #1225

We do understand that unclear phrasing of the Privacy Policy and lack of context regarding introduction has led to major concerns about how we use and store the very limited data we collect. We will be publishing a revised version shortly.

In the meantime, the Privacy Policy doesn’t actually come into force until the next release of Audacity (3.0.3). The current version (3.0.2) does not support data collection any data of any kind and has no networking features enabled.
