Stephen Jondrew and Stargate Pioneer host a weekly podcast dedicated for the Hobby Podcaster with tips and tricks on how to get started, sound great, have fun and not break the bank. Each week they talk about a podcasting topic in depth within an arc (like how to start a podcast, podcast gear for the hobby podcaster, and tips on different types of presenting-announcing-hosting) and then run down a current news item of importance to podcasting. They also run down any feedback and offer advice on how to make your hobby podcasting time better, easier and more fun.

It's another battle of podcast media hosting versus podcast self hosting in our 150th episode as we run down the workflow on how to start a podcast (from a technical perspective). SP talks about media hosting and Stephen talks about self-hosting. We break this down into four main sections:

- Ground Work
- Setting Up Your Podcast
- Posting
- Misc Information

In this week's Better Podcasting Download, we review the new Spotify podcaster dashboard and what it means for people who are self-hosting their podcast and what you should do if you're already a podcaster in Spotify.

Additionally in the Download, we talk about the new Skype 7 end of life.

During the Better Podback, we chat about a recent exchange with blubrry and their Podcast Directory of 600,000 shows (and how a lot of them are dead).

Finally, Stephen shares a personal story about how he's STILL LEARNING 150 episodes later.
