History hasn't been good to free podcast hosting companies. But for some startups, hosting podcast files for free is an integral part of their business model.
That's causing old-school podcasters to scratch their heads. Because the conversation is shifting away from "how do I make money with my podcast?" to "how can I discover a business model with where I subsidize the costs of media hosting as part of my overall service offering?"

(Hint: It's a very, very good time to blend podcasting and startup culture!)
