I put on my Grumpy Old Man hat on today. Here are the top 10 things that bug me about podcasting and podcasters these days…
10. WordPress.com is NOT the same as WordPress.org.
9. People that use “POD” to mean Podcast.
8. Companies that want to change the word “Subscribe” to Follow.
7. No Tech Support for some podcast directories and apps. They blame the podcast hosting companies for any issues.
6. So-called Podcast Consultants.
5. Podcasters that focus too much on one platform.
4. People who think Apple and others can do no wrong.
3. People that say they know how many Subscribers (or followers) they have total. It’s an unknowable stat for the most part.
2. BAD ad insertion in podcasts.
1. YouTubers saying they have a PODCAST on YouTube.
Bonus: Of course, Spotify.
