Podcast Squared #109- Top of the Pops

In the news: Google decides there are too many better podcast apps on Android so they kill their own Listen app. Radio station/blog WBEZ wises up to the wonder that is Marc Maron in their feature on his 300th episode. Wizzard Media expands into China with their acquisition of FAB and reveals the Chinese are surprisingly big on independent podcasts. The sad news is making its rounds that co-host of the Professor Blastoff podcast and all around great comedian Tig Notaro has been diagnosed with breast cancer, we here at Podcast Squared wish her the best and hope for a speedy recovery.

In review: This week Andrew reviews one of the growing number of podcasts that are taking on the world of video game music with his review of Minnesota Public Radio’s Top Score.

Our guest this week is the heir apparent to the Mike Duncan history podcast throne, it’s David Crowther the host of the History of England podcast. We talk about bad sources, quirky British things, and how the podcast world is going to cope without Mike!
