October 1, 2019 · 2.7 minutes to read
A new podcast app with a difference: Podcast Alarm claims it’s “the only podcast alarm app on iOS”. “With Podcast Alarm you can select whatever kind of podcast you’re into as your morning alarm. Instead of hitting snooze, dozing off again and feeling worse, you can actually listen to something interesting.” It’s $1.99, iOS only. (You could wake up to our podcast maybe.)

One Voice, One Mic is a new short documentary about podcasting from Ben Gummery, and was released yesterday. It’s available on Amazon Prime Video - USA, UK, global - and coming soon to Vimeo. “It takes an upbeat yet honest look at the rise of podcasting as well as examining the state of the medium; considering whether podcasts are becoming over-saturated and demystifying how the monetisation of podcasts actually works in practice; with a particular focus on the UK podcasting scene.”

I know it sounds crazy because we’re so used to believing you can only get healthcare if you have insurance, but it’s not true. I’m self-employed and I have the best healthcare I’ve ever had for 60% less than insurance. All same advantages, without the hassles, limitations, and expense of health insurance.

Finally, we return to The Daily Star, a British newspaper that steals stories from podcasts. This time, White Wine Question Time, a podcast by Yahoo! UK, interviewed Eamonn Holmes in an episode from July 25th. It took Alex Brown, a journalist from the newspaper, over a month to steal the story, entirely uncredited, which appeared on page 17 and online on September 5th. Any more?
