  • Todd Cochrane’s Geek News Central will today release its 1,500th episode in a live recording from 7.30pm ET via Facebook. Todd is also CEO of Blubrry, and tells Podnews of the benefit of using your own product: “While I love doing my show for my family of listeners, I strongly believe the only way to stay abreast of what is happening, and the struggles podcasters face in building a show and keeping advertisers happy, is by being in the trenches creating content.” Congratulations to him.

  • Gaming headset company Turtle Beach has acquired Neat Microphones, a company making weird-looking podcaster microphones.
