Does your podcast need a website? The short answer is YES.
Joe Casabona is a podcaster, course-creator and developer.
He strongly recommends having an independent website for your podcast to build an audience for your show.
A website can also be the one true source for all of the feeds.
Having a website for your podcast makes adding information to your feed easier, plus hosting other features like a forum, shop, show notes, and transcripts.
A bonus would be creating custom content just for your website visitors, creating a loyal audience for your podcast.
