Elsewhere in Canada (in Vernon BC), Justin Jackson from Transistor is interviewed about how he works at his podcast company.
Jack Rhysider from Darkside Diaries - a man who knows his way around a computer or two - managed to accidentally delete all his podcasts over the weekend, “due to bad UI”. "I selected a single episode, hit delete, are you sure yes, it deleted all episodes," he added, noting that his hosting provider doesn’t have 24/7 support. His podcasts are now back.
- Zack Kahn from Vox Media adds on his personal Twitter that “we are building a billion dollar industry on late 90s tech, and it’s going to really hurt us unless we start modernising”, and “even the best podcast hosting providers are doing a C+/B job”. We helped a podcast publisher with an issue with Apple Podcasts last week: their podcast host had let them upload the wrong sized image, and had also allowed them to upload a VBR audio file. Both of these issues are easily caught by simple software routines, and are obvious best practice.
