So I wanted to let folks here know that my podcast has moved. Don’t get me wrong, Fireside are great! Although, there site has gotten less Safari compatible, and therefore less accessible for me, since I started with them back in 2018. And there were some accessibility issues I brought to their attention that they never did fix, although, admittedly, I didn’t nag them nearly as much as I should have. But those aren’t the reasons I decided to move my show. They’re still a great service and I’d definitely recommend them!
No, I decided to change hosting services because of straight-up affordability LOL all to be able to keep hosting one episode! Because, the one catch with Fireside is that there cheaper plans have a 100 MB file-size limit. And there’s this one interview I did last year where the file goes just a bit over that! LOL And I don’t have nearly the editing skill necessary to get the file-size down, much less without loosing audio quality!
But then, actually during my zine launch, a friend mentioned Anchor.fm, which is a free hosting service. But even though it’s free, it still has quite good creation and distribution features, although I’m still getting the hang of all the ins and outs. And while it does have a file-size limit, it’s 200 MB!! LOL So that gives me a lot more wiggle-room. Which is awesome, because I’m hoping to do a lot more interviews! And I don’t like to cut them. I prefer to keep interviews as natural as possible.
Anyway, the new podcast site is https://anchor.fm/in-this-labyrinth to check out. The show’s also back up and running on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and Spotify (URLs at the bottom of this post), and is newly available on RadioPublic and Breaker. So we’re back in business!!
Oh, and I’ll be posting a new episode very soon with highlights from my zine launch. Because, as I think I mentioned, the fabulous folks who volunteered to read excerpts from the first issue also awesomely allowed me to record their readings to share on the podcast! I’m so thankful to them for that. So watch this space, and/or the podcast website, and/or the podcast Facebook and Twitter for that very soon. Indeed, I hope to get it posted in the next few days!
