So, in this episode, I talk about my decision and experience to switch my podcast hosting platform from Megaphone to Captivate.fm. I'll go through the reasons why I decided that Megaphone wasn't the podcast hosting platform for me and also why I decided to move over to Captivate.fm.

You'll also pick up podcasting tips about how to choose the podcast host that best suits your own podcast.
