I’ve got a rather assorted issue of Hot Pod for you all today. First off, Paul McCartney is getting a podcast. I spoke to the executive producer of the new show to learn more about the inner workings of the two-season series. There’s a new leader at Amazon Music and a new sales partnership from Soundrise with TED Audio Collective. Also, the popular rewatch podcast The Always Sunny Podcast is going on a break.
