I received a response today from Podbean:
Currently, we don't have staff available for interview.
Podbean.com was founded in Montreal, Canada.
We are a group of tech geekers who love to use the tech solutions to give best low cost service to users.
So they are from Canada, and people who manage podcasting, don't have 15 minutes to talk to someone who has an audience filledwith people who are interested in podcast hosting.
It's not an ego thing. Really it's not. Does anybody else find this weird?
