Categories, channels, taxonomies and a whole lot of other decisions are discussed to help you get a better idea of how to start a network easily with the help of PowerPress.

Recently Gimlet Media decided to end one of their shows which sparked lots of conversation. Thanks for listening and go subscribe to the show!
