Freedom of Speech in Podcasting – PHD133

I talk more about Spotify and why I am not there anymore. Also, what is a REAL podcast app?

My definition is if you can take the RSS feed address and subscribe to a podcast feed that is NOT included in the Apple or whatever other directory and still subscribe and listen to the podcast.  Apple Podcasts, Overcast, Podcast Addict and Pocketcasts are examples.   If you can not, then it’s not a true RSS based podcast app.   Apps like Spotify, Pandora, Deezer, Sticher and a few others are apps you can use to listen to podcasts, but only if those apps ALLOW you to see the podcast in their directories.


Freedom of Speech is important as well. is trying to make an insurance policy for the freedom of Podcasting.   They have a podcast that is NOT on the directories.   It’s Podcast 2.0 with Adam Curry and Dave Jones.   You can subscribe using their RSS feed here:  Just paste it in on your REAL podcast app to subscribe.
