Acast Podcast Hosting Site Link this is the link to the first podcast directly to the host. This option is great for sharing to known sources and for using on social media.
Apple iTunes link to the podcast Being successful in an application to iTunes opens up several new opportunities for listeners to the podcast. Biggest advantage that I see is that listeners can subscribe once to the podcast and iTunes will download future shows directly to you as soon as they are uploaded to the host site. The other advantage being that podcast listeners can search different genre’s and hash tags and may find the podcast if any of the tags or show descriptions meet the search request.
