THFC130916 — Free Podcast Media Hosts and Their Limitations


On today’s Tech Help for Churches: Free Podcast Media Hosts and Their Limitations

The ideal podcast host would have a business model that pays for it, be free, have unlimited storage, unlimited bandwidth, and not rename, not reencode, and not delete your files (after a certain time).

While I prefer Libsyn and Blubrry, they aren’t free. So if free is a deal breaker, what about hosts like Podomatic, Buzzsprout, and PodcastGarden?

They each fail one of the tests, so you just have to decide which is the best one for you.
