This morning Apple held their spring 2021 event. One of the announcements was about Apple’s new podcast subscription service that they were going to be launching in May 2021.
I am an avid listener of podcasts, and I use different podcast apps to listen to them. I have found that Apple podcast app has been one of their poorest items for apps that they have. In terms of accessibility.
I am not thrilled about the prospect of doing Apple more money to listen to the podcasts that I currently enjoy on other platforms for free.
Having said that, I realize that my opinions may change. I like to support many of the podcast that I listen to. But that can get expensive overtime.If Apple is supporting the podcast community, and compensating the creators properly and not screwing them over, then I may consider a subscription. Are there any other podcast listeners out there that have any other opinions on this?
