Before YouTube, videos had to be downloaded and consumed in big monolithic blocks, but now, pretty much every bit of video content is available in short snippets.

In the same way, every podcast on Smash Notes is chunked, divided in section, with immediately playable audio for each individual section.

Each section is usually a question that was asked on the episode, something that provides immediate value to the listeners.


The best time to create Smash Notes for your episode is immediately after your episode is published. As a podcast author, you probably know exactly what was the most interesting about your show, and now you can highlight the best bits right away.
