Which startup is going to be the next big thing? Investors, bloggers, job seekers, and inspiring entrepreneurs everywhere are dying to know.

Remote work is where it’s at. More and more companies have at least some components of their business based out of the traditional office. Startups in particular rely heavily on scattered employees and freelancers.
So, who needs the traditional, kitchen sink job board when the workforce and employers are hungry to go remote?
Remotive looks to jump to the forefront of the changing workplace landscape. It’s a weekly newsletter and job board focused on – you guessed it – remote work opportunities. Find great tips on remote work and productivity as well as remote job positions at great companies. (Remote + Productive = Remotive)
Landing remote jobs and working in isolation present unique challenges, as those with plenty of experience working remotely know well. High time a startup speak directly to the needs of this rapidly growing community.
We have lots of good reasons to love podcasts – great content on a wide variety of subjects, bold Internet personalities, the intimacy of interviews with unfiltered commentary. And we have one very good reason to dislike podcasts – uneven audio quality.
It goes without saying that not all podcasts have the studio capabilities of This American Life. Which is fine. Pity though when interviews conducted on Skype or on the phone sound incomprehensible.
PodClear to the rescue.
The PodClear application lets podcasters record crystal clear interviews. No need to change the chat service you’re already using or your recording rig. PodClear runs in parallel, allowing you to work as you like, adding only the simple press of a button.
PodClear records separate tracks of each party as well as a mixed version, which makes both editing and broadcasting fast and easy. Podcasters can also use the service to store their podcasts.
