#171: Supertop


We’re joined this week by Oisín Prendiville and Pádraig Kennedy of Supertop. Supertop recently released a new version of their podcast player Castro, so we chatted with them about the new release, monetizing through the patronage model (and why they moved away from patronage for this release), as well as some of the marketing strategies they have been using to promote Castro.
