Castro 3’s Business Model

Supertop:

Oisín & Pádraig discuss the different options for Castro 3’s business model and the reasons behind the model they’ve chosen.

This is an interesting discussion about why they are switching to subscriptions despite previously not liking that model. Advertising does not seem like a good fit because they are deliberately targeting a niche user base. What is the proper way to balance unique features with a free trial?

I wonder how well PocketCasts is doing financially since they are still using the old business model. I bought the iOS version years ago and eventually picked up Android and Web versions as well since the cloud sync works great across devices (I could never get the Apple Podcast app to sync podcasts correctly).
