New Host

I recently decided to switch hosting services for my mix files. I've been using Switchpod to host my files since the beginning of the Hydrogen Cafe. But, their service has been going steadily downhill. So, I stumbled upon the Podbean hosting service and decided to make the switch. So far, Podean rules. They have a pricing structure similar to Switchpod but Podbean has no upper limit to the number of files you can upload. They have a monthly upload cap based on your subscription but you can keep uploading files month after month with no total size limits to your account. That rocks! Download speeds seem to be good and they also offer embeddable stream players like the ones I recently installed for each of my mixes. They also have good iTunes support so you can easily link your podcast to iTunes.

I just shutdown my Switchpod account completely. I've tried to go back and change all of the download links on web posts I have made. There may be a few old ones I missed. If you have any problems downloading, all the new Podbean download links below work. Please drop me a line if you are still having problems. Also, if you are interested in signing up for a Podbean account, send me an e-mail and I can send you a special code that will get us each a free month of service! You can e-mail me at: nrvnet9(at) LOL this sounds like a freakin' ad. But Podbean does rock!
