I know, I know, don’t start a podcast just because you’re bored. Let’s be real though, the COVID-19 situation is going to be the event that launches a million podcasts, as we’re all stuck at home with hours to prattle on about things into the void.
Zencastr, one of the better tools for remote podcasters, announced today that it will be waiving the limits for those on its Hobbyist tier. That includes dropping limits on hours and the number of participants. The policy will remain in place until July 1. Hopefully we’ll be able to, you know, go outside by then.
I’ve listed Zencastr in a few of my podcasting guides as a great podcast-specific alternative to virtual conferencing platforms like Skype and Zoom. Among the features is the ability to automatically record and upload individual tracks — a terrific feature when it comes time to edit the thing.
