The value of mini episodes & short roundups (Brandy Heyde Montague, For Animals. For Earth.)

This post may contain affiliate links to some of my favorite podcasting tools and resources. Full disclosure here.

Brandy currently releases a weekly 40-minute episode, but she’s thinking about adding shorter mini episodes to hook more listeners. Is this an effective way to build your audience or your community? Or it just yet another thing that takes too much time?
