I have to confess that I’m amazed and delighted at the success of The Bike Show’s podcast edition. Most listeners will be aware that The Bike Show is made for broadcast on Resonance FM, an experimental art radio station in London. However, thanks to podcasting, it is reaching a much wider audience, right around the globe.
So first of all, thanks again to Jon Oates, who first encouraged me to get my podcasting act together and held my hand while I flapped around trying to do it. This was back in May 2005, in the early prehistory of podcasting, before iTunes podcast directory, Ricky Gervais and all.
Since then, The Bike Show’s podcast has grown in popularity to a point where it is downloaded each week by between 1000 and 1500 subscribers! Almost all of this has been through word of mouth. I have done zero promotion as I’m too busy just making the show itself every week.
But I’ve been told that a good way to spread the word about The Bike Show is to vote for it on Podcast Alley. You can do that in a flash by clicking here. So far there is a grand total of 7 votes. The show deserves more than that, doesn’t it?
