In youtube, when we suscribe to a chanel, the author knows it. And it encourages her. It’s a way to thanks her. What about antennapod? Do the author knows when we suscribed to her podcast?
Yes, they know. AntennaPod loads the podcast directly from the host’s servers, so they can count downloads/streams.
By the way, the best way to reward podcasters is to donate to them That keeps the medium free and open instead of having to pay for subscriptions.
