MiM 027: How Apple Strangles Podcasting

Podcasting has such a bright future they say … but a look at what’s partially behind the explosive growth of video and YouTube, as well as the migration of podcasts to that platform, reveals a deep flaw with Apple’s iTunes platform.

The music track used in the opening of this episode is called “Telecom” and was created by Lee Rosevere.
