Yesterday, we linked to a tweet saying Audioboom were up to date on payments; but after we published a link to it, it was deleted - along with the Twitter account it was from. (The author of the tweet says, on her LinkedIn page, that she left Audioboom in Aug 2015.) Stuart Last, the COO of Audioboom, tells us:
I’m pleased to say that we have made great progress with payments to our partners - we’re not quite fully caught up but will be very soon. Our partners have continued to be very patient and understood that it wouldn’t be a case of us announcing the fundraise and then paying them the next day. We have made payments to more than 70 podcasts in the last five days - we are well ahead of my end of July goal for having everyone caught up. Again, I want to thank all our partners for their patience.
