  • Stitcher has a new logo. “A bit more modern, a bit bolder. Representative of the continuing evolution of podcasting, yet still harkening back to our roots.” Podcasters are asked to update their listen badges: visit the partner portal and then hit “promote this show”. Stitcher is also now the parent brand of Midroll and Earwolf.

  • The Guardian is to launch a daily flagship podcast by the end of the year. The host has been announced as Anushka Asthana, who is currently the newspaper’s joint political editor; Leo Hornack is EP. Bose is due to be the launch sponsor, and Acast will represent the podcast.

  • Podcrypt is a proposed new app for sharing money with podcasters based on how long you listen. It will use cryptocurrency and a progressive web app. There’s a Telegram group to join if you think it’s a good idea.
