Book Chats is going out into the world. We released our first test podcast last week and registered with Google, Apple, Stiticher, and Spotify. So far we have been approved by all except Stitcher. I still haven’t heard back from them, but they usually take awhile.
Although we have been approved, we still have to wait for updates before Book Chats will be widely available. This should be resolved in the next couple of days. As soon as the podcast appears in the various “stores,” I will write a post on “How To Post a Review of Book Chats.” So keep your eyes out for that.
Some of you have been able to subscribe to the podcast. I want to thank those of you who helped us by subscribing and reporting issues with the different feeds. All your emails and Facebook messages have been helpful in working out the kinks. The goal is a clean release when the first interview with Jay Greenstein goes live on July 9.
If you get bored and want something to do, download a different podcast app from the one you normally use, and try subscribing to Book Chats. If you have difficulty, drop me a note at AdamChristiansen@BookChats.net and I will look into it.
Book Chats even gets to use the Google Play Badge in our marketing. I must admit that I am feeling pretty fancy. Unfortunately, I am disappointed that the badge doesn’t connect back to Book Chats. Instead, it is an advertisement for a subscription to Google Play.
Another test podcast will be released tomorrow, so let us know if it doesn’t show up in your podcast feed.
Again, thank you for your help in this pre-launch phase of Book Chats.
