Why can’t I just use a free app to host my files? Becuase bandwidth isn't free see http://davidjackson.org/2017/09/another-clueless-free-podcas-media-host-goes-business/
What days should I release? The one that works for you.
How long should my episodes be? As long as they need to be and not a minute more. Embrace the power of editing.
How frequently should I publish? As often as needed.
Should I go to X conference? If you can afford it yes. Building your audience and relationships face to face is the best.
I only have so many downloads for my super niche show – I’m a failure. There are more ways to count success besides downloads. Plus, if you're hyper-niche you may have captured a large percentage of your total audience.
