Potential Problems With Podcasts Soon
Hey everyone. Just wanted to give a quick heads up about something that could be happening in the future.
As some of you know, we host all of our podcasts on SoundCloud. They’ve been a pretty great platform for us and we’ve liked using them. Unfortunately, just yesterday (October 5th) we got a copyright strike against our account. If we get two strikes, we can no longer have tracks be downloadable. At three strikes, our account is shut down.
We desperately don’t want this to happen. Unfortunately, we’re not sure what the strike is from exactly, so we’re not sure how to fight it. And there could very possibly be more strikes on the way. So we could lose all 546 tracks we have posted to the SoundCloud.
Right now we do have another hosting platform picked out should that happen, but at the same time we don’t have backups for all of our old shows. We just didn’t have the space needed to back them all up. If our account is shutdown before we can get everything hosted on there downloaded and backed up, we could lose a lot of shows.
This is all potentially on the horizon at this point, but I wanted to let you all know ahead of time in case this does come up sooner rather than later and we end up losing a lot of our shows.
I’m sorry about all of this. Hopefully it doesn’t happen, but I’m still sorry if it does.
