The International Podcast Association held its first board meeting at Podcast Movement last night.

The group’s website contains a survey to help set the group’s priorities.
Spotify has brought their platform, called Spotify for Podcasters, out of beta. The enhanced podcaster portal offers a new blog, support for teams, and most interestingly - a way to discover “the top music artists that their podcast listeners play on Spotify”. Podnews listeners like Taylor Swift at #1, and Elton John at #2. Disappointing.
