another thing w/r/t the Apple Pod news:— Nick Quah (@nwquah) April 20, 2021
according to an email I obtained, “The NPR Board has endorsed plans for NPR to develop a 'public radio podcast subscription service.’”
Well, this is fun.— Marco Arment (@marcoarment) April 20, 2021
Tried going to Apple Podcasts Connect when signed into my developer account. Hit Cancel, signed out.
Now I can’t get into App Store Connect with my dev account.
Always redirects to podcastsconnect, even in another browser.
i just reject that framing. at a time of massive rising inequality of which Apple is a huge beneficiary, capturing the maximum amount of revenue created by their platforms should not be how it approaches the creator economy— Casey Newton (@CaseyNewton) April 20, 2021
I missed it, does Substack have tens of millions of extant podcast listeners?— Lucas Shaw (@Lucas_Shaw) April 20, 2021
First take on Apple’s pod plans: creator-friendly way to generate more $ w/out cannibalizing existing biz.— Peter Kafka (@pkafka) April 20, 2021
I had thought Apple would require some kind of exclusivity but am told that’s not so: you can distribute pod with ads on Spotify, Apple etc and sell ad-free via Apple too.
Apple's margin is no one's opportunity due to App Store restrictions— nilay patel (@reckless) April 20, 2021

Whoa.🎙️📰@ApplePodcasts just announced a major update to their podcasting platform and specifically the tools that podcasters use (Podcast Connect).— Transistor (@TransistorFM) April 20, 2021

The podcast wars just heated up🔥— Sid Jha (@sidharthajha) April 20, 2021
Apple announces subscriptions with a 30% take rate for the first year and 15% from Year 2.
Good for creators as Apple's ecosystem all but eliminates any friction, but will be interesting to see how Spotify reacts.https://t.co/HF7McN3j5Z
"[...]premium subscriptions that include a variety of benefits curated by creators, SUCH AS ad-free listening, access to additional content, and early or exclusive access to new series."— Bryan Barletta - Sounds Profitable (@HighFiveRPG) April 20, 2021
Emphasis mine. Subscriptions does not mean ad free.https://t.co/20fnUIoNMX
Podcasting as we've known it is dead, dying, or going through a renaissance, I'm not sure which.— ⌗ChrisMessina (@chrismessina) April 20, 2021
First @Spotify announces it's breaking syndication formats; today @Apple announced its own premium podcast subscription.https://t.co/jpGZJPQA9w#StreamingWars #AppleEvent
As far as I can tell, this is the first major podcast player to allow for in-app subscriptions for all creators, which will allow for much more seamless consumption than what's offered through platforms like Patreon and Supporting Cast.https://t.co/Ms5Agkm8OV— Simon Owens (@simonowens) April 20, 2021

Audio could be the next frontier for digital journalism. A day after @Facebook 's major audio play announcements including in-app podcasts, @Apple makes a plucky drive towards podcasts. In India, the languages will be the battleground. @Earshot_Socialhttps://t.co/8oXhtrs5Ij— Gaurav Choudhury (@gauravchoudhury) April 21, 2021
