How to make money podcasting:
1) Join a network with money like Stitcher and put 3+ ads in your show.
2) $upport another podcast by using your fan base and feed to preview their first episode.
3) Put archived, older episodes behind a paywall.
COINCIDENTALLY, these are all the reasons I have stopped listening to podcasts.
and https://www.patreon.com/roadwork just added an ad-free option behind a $5/month paywall
https://www.patreon.com/otherpplpod joined a network and removed their paywall
there's a lot going on, I guess
