Google is looking to get serious with their podcast strategy (finally) and if they're successful, could we see podcast listenership double current rates?
Join Ray, Dave, Jonathan Bloom and Ryan Flaherty to talk about Google's podcast strategy, Quakers who podcast but say nothing, 2018 Edison podcast research/stats and more!

We're trying a new format on the Roundtable today. Each Roundtabler is choosing a couple podcasting news items and we'll discuss. I think you'll find the format very informative. I'm already enjoying the format just reading all the chosen articles! Should be fun, come join us live if you can and join the discussion in the chat!
One of the stories I've chosen is about asking for ratings and reviews. "Do podcasters really need to beg for ratings and reviews?" What do ratings and reviews really do for your podcast? In short, in Apple Podcasts, probably not much...at least for the algorithm but they might go a long way to get more people to sample your podcast.
