Throughout time people have listened to radio and media in a variety of formats. However, surprisingly many of the people we meet everyday do not realize however "how to" listen to podcasts. Don't be embarrassed you are NOT alone. So we thought we would take the time to help everyone on their journey. Please enjoy!~
The first and most common way to listen to podcasts is by using your smart phone or smart device. Many of these devices come with a default listening podcast application. These applications allow you to search for topics you wanted to listen to and save your favorite shows and episodes. In addition, these applications will push notifications to you when new material or seasons are released. So click the application, and do a search for Sasquatch Syndicate and Subscribe - and if you leave a good review don't be surprised if you get a shout out on the show. There are a few apps we recommend however such as Apple's Podcast Application and or if you like third party applications we recommend the application "Overcast".
Surprisingly to some as of 2015, only 22% of the world population own smart phones. Many still are using flip phones or no phone at all and over 80% of the world still have no internet. In these cases many fans pick up the show at work on their computer by using our shows website links.
Website links are a great way to stay up to date at all times, as when shows reshuffle or adjust releases this is the true source using the shows RSS “really simple syndication,” feed to the networks. Sadly however, many networks do not refresh this signal so the source does not always make its way to your ears.
Radio is still the most frequent application the world has access to. Many podcasts are syndicated to the radio networks via outlets and licensing is arranged between the show and to AM/FM broadcast stations. While radio stations still exist, they are becoming fewer and farther between.
As a result, many radio broadcasters have moved to podcasts as a new media source to actually see their work reach the audience, as podcast data is much richer for the creator to see what their listeners are interested in. Shows like Sasquatch Syndicate are available on iHeart Radio and other broadcast media platforms like Soundcloud and Spotify.
Sasquatch Syndicate does not yet have a Youtube Channel, as Podcasts are an Audio Format. While many of the shows out there release their audio episodes, Youtube was intended for Video or Video Log's none as VLOG format. That being said, a video show format is on our 5 year plan so keep checking back and we look forward to moving to video in the coming years.
What's your favorite way to listen? let us know and share your thoughts with our audience. Thanks again for listening!!!
