Here is the direct MP3 download for the Evil Genius Chronicles podcast, August 13 2013.

In this episode, I take a break from the fandom series and talk about the selling of digital goods and in particular the dynamics of “name your own price” deals. I discuss the Humble ebook bundles and how I think big publishers fail to understand the elasticity of demand for their goods; my experience with buying Amanda Palmer’s album with name your own price; and how I think large businesses that sell physical goods will never do an adequate job of selling digital goods.
