5by5, 70Decibels Podcast Networks to Merge

Myke Hurley, in a blog post announcing the move:

As the network continues to grow, our ambitions grow with it. Our hosts put out shows that deserve a larger audience, and my dream of a career in podcasting is within reach. To get to the next level, we need help. We need a better infrastructure and even more great people to support the network we have created. That's why I'm thrilled to announce that 70Decibels is going to be moving to the 5by5 Podcasting Network.

Our shows deserve a solid platform to continue to grow. In my mind, there is no better place for this than 5by5 and no better person than Dan Benjamin to help us continue moving forward. When he first reached out to gauge our interest in joining his network, I was floored. As I said, Dan is a hero of mine, and I was honoured to have our network considered to join 5by5. As we continued to talk, and as I spoke with the other hosts, it was clear that this was the right opportunity for us.

For a podcast geek like me, this is huge news. I've been listening to many 5by5 shows, and I'm a huge fan of shows like CMD+SPACE and the 512 Podcast on 70Decibels. Dan has done a terrific job with 5by5, and teaming up with Myke will make the network even better.
