Reminder, podcasts are just an rss feed with links to audio files.

Not an app. Not some walled ecosystem.

@RadicalEdward True, but syndication and discoverability are definitely walled gardens. Especially if you want the convenience for followers to automatically be delivered new episodes on iTunes, Spotify, or Google Play.

@hentai @RadicalEdward syndication isn't really walled per se. You can tell the main distributors how to find your RSS feed and users of those platforms will be able to get your content; you aren't required to wall off your content to get that, and your listeners don't have to use those gardens

Discovery definitely is, sadly. If I'm on, say, Spotify and you don't genuflect to them, I will never find your thing
