The definition of Podfade:

The gradual or abrupt cessation of podcast episodes without notice.

Key Points about Podfading:

  • If a podcast series ends with an official final episode then it did not Podfade.
  • If a podcast ceases to publish new episodes without letting the audience know then it has podfaded.

I wrote a more lengthy post about Podfading at the Podcast Hero blog.
