What happens if your avatar is part of the 75% who have not yet picked up the habit of listening to podcasts? This episode gives some practical advice that you should implement right away because: Words like “subscribe” & “follow” have no context They’ve no recognition of podcast app logos They don’t know where to go digging for a player… so don’t hide it! They’re less likely to forgive you for three minutes of chitter-chatter before you get to the point! Keep in mind that three out of every four people who find your website have likely not regular podcast consumers. Three out of four. That’s the majority. Clearly, your site needs to address their needs as well as more seasoned listeners.  Do your part to make podcasting better for them… and all of us. ---- A text-based and totally-re-written-for-reading version of this episode can be found at: https://podcastpontifications.com/episode/design-your-podcast-for-the-75-who-dont-listen-to-podcasts (https://podcastpontifications.com/episode/design-your-podcast-for-the-75-who-dont-listen-to-podcasts) https://podcastpontifications.com (Podcast Pontifications) is published by Evo Terra four times a week and is aimed at the working podcaster.

Mentioned in this episode: Support For Abortion Rights While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S. The Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade on June 24th. Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions. Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn't be the privilege of a small few. You can help by donating to local abortion funds. To find out where to donate for each state, visit donations4abortion.com. If you or someone you know needs help, or if you want to get more involved, here are 5 resources: 1. ShoutYourAbortion.com is a campaign to normalize abortion. 2.
