Apple is pivoting away from podcasts iTunes (How will I ever sync my iPod classic now!) with an announcement on April 13th, 2017.

What are you looking forward to most with the change? What are your concerns? Do you even care (Hint: you should since Apple provides over 70% of your content to audiences via Libsyn stats read on Libsyn's The Feed podcast monthly by Libsyn Vice President Of Podcaster Relations, Rob Walch)?

I *just* updated the subscription links on my site to make sure they all have the iTunes badges and two days later Apple makes me change them again. Figures...

Personally I think this is a good change. Maybe it will help people that get confused and think they have to pay for podcasts.

So it's your fault then? :p

But seriously, I agree with what you said. I've known many people who think you have to pay when you say it's in iTunes.
