What Next, Slate's daily news podcast, launched today at a new time of 5am. It had a short pilot period at the end of last year, and undertook surveys of their audience to tweak the show. It's hosted by Mary Harris, formerly of WNYC. (Of the current US daily news podcasts from major publishers, is this the only one permanently hosted by a woman?)
The Hustle and Flowchart alert us about their recent podcast episode with Trevr Smithlin, founder of AdvertiseCast (here). "He gave us some specific strategies to monetize and grow podcasts in 2019." The hosts also said some nice things about Podnews in their email, which was nice and a sure-fire way to be mentioned.
