A podcast is only a podcast if it's distributed as an audio file via a news feed. If your "podcast" is exclusive to any service, be it Spotify, YouTube, iTunes, etc., then it's not a podcast!
@DHeadshot @saxnot I couln't agree more! (Having had a podcast since the early days and months of it's existence.) But still, everyone calls it that way. Let's think up an ugly word for that... Blotcast? Rotcast? Kapotcast? Podknast? (I like that one, but maybe a bit too German :😀 ) Foolcast perhaps... Or else snotcast. No no no SPOTCAST!!
