Podange has hit the street with a Beta "Station Owners" program. In a nutshell, someone (anyone!) can create "station" of podcasts - which appears to be nothing more than a hand-picked aggregate of topical podcasts - and make it available for subscription. Podango will then sell ad space on these "stations" and everybody gets rich. It costs nothing but time and passion and it pays from $25K to $250K per year or more. I've signed up for the beta because I want more information and that appears to be the only way to get it. The immediate questions that come to mind are:
How can podango guarantee $25K per year. Or are they?
How do the podcasters whose shows form this channel get paid? Or do they?
Anyone have any inside info on this? I'll post back if I get more info.
