  7. 7. The Voice Unsustained is no longer a voice • Podfade: When a podcast begins putting out episodes more and more sporadically and at greater intervals. Typically begins with only one episode missed, but if a podcast isn't careful, it can compound, sometimes as severe as one podcast every other month. Podfade often leads to podcast death. Many podcasts deny their podfade until it is too late. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=podfade
