Hey, I’m so glad you found your way to this page.
I’m really grateful you’re interested in rating and reviewing my podcast.
Firstly, asking for reviews and ratings isn’t a popularity game, trying to get more likes and such. Ratings and listens by real people affect how the B-RAD Podcast shows up in searches on iTunes and other podcast directories.
Ideally, I hope you’re here because what I’m sharing on the podcast connects with you in some way.
Maybe you’re asking questions about the meaning of life and your personal identity? Maybe you’re re-thinking some of your previous assumptions and mindsets? Maybe you’re looking for an honest and inspiring dialogue about the Divine and humanity that assumes goodness and beauty and then explores how to live from that knowledge?
Other people are looking for the same kind of conversations and media experiences and I’d like them to be able to find it on this podcast.
I need your help so people can find this podcast, to be part of these conversations and experiences.
There are over half a million podcasts on iTunes. It’s a deep, deep pool and bringing the B-RAD Podcast to the surface of this pool, or even to the layer where the light penetrates, is assisted by iTunes reviews and ratings.
iTunes reviews, ratings, and subscriptions affect how iTunes displays a podcast in search results.
It’s hard for new people to find the B-RAD Podcast without reviews and ratings to help bump the podcast up in position. This isn’t about an ego trip, it’s the way media publishers (iTunes, Amazon, etc.) determine what’s valuable to their audience. They figure if the community of readers or listeners values it, it’s worth showcasing in their listings.
B-RAD Podcast is on many podcast directories and you can listen on any app or service that you prefer. But iTunes is the most popular podcast directory and the industry standard. It’s the place where your rating will make the most impact. That’s why we ask you for your review on that platform.
