After leaving Twitter, Glass worked on several projects with Marc Canter, a co-founder of MacroMind which later became Macromedia.

He later developed an app that allows a user to enter an audio blog entry from a remote cell to a phone location. His small start-up in his career known as AudBlog was eventually created in partnership with Evan Williams. The two of them then created Odeo, known as a podcasting company.

Odeo was supposed to be a podcasting platform at the beginning of their startup. But then Apple launched iTunes and every member of Odeo got panicked.
