But do not worry, the team is not going away. We will be triumphal the polity as we have every year and will still be managing our social media channels.

It can be sad when a minion event changes, or ends. International Podcast Day gave podcasts quite a bit of time to process the changes. There will be no official International Podcast Day stream in 2021. That doesn’t midpoint an individual podcaster, or a podcast team, couldn’t decide to get on Twitch or YouTube and stream something themselves to gloat the day.
