My guest today is a friend of mine, Matt Medeiros. Matt is known as the “WordPress guy” to many in his community and those of us who know him professionally. With the launch of WordPress 5.0, we discuss what the changes will mean for podcasters and WordPress users in general. Even if you don’t plan on starting a podcast, WordPress is changing the game and worth looking into it.As easy as it is, like your plug-in at Castos makes it to host these things, you should still take some time and go at this with some care and be ready for the journey of podcasting. It can be daunting. – Matt Click To Tweet
