Enthralling your listeners means nailing the details. Your word choice, split-second editing decisions, and the inclusion of chapters in each episode of your podcast can help pull together an expertly crafted story.
But it’s also in how you present your story. How you divvy up and mete out each episode is a way of leading listeners through the narrative thread. Listeners should always know exactly where they need to be when tuning in, and in particular where to begin. For example, if your content is serialized, it’s essential they start from the oldest episode (or rather, the first-ever made episode).
Dividing up your podcast in a smart way also makes your content more digestible. Working through seasons and clearly labeling your episodes helps listeners ease into your podcast without feeling overwhelmed.
Now, thanks to updates introduced with iOS 11, the presentation and production choices you make will be clearly displayed in Apple Podcasts. And to facilitate the matter, we at Spreaker have added new settings that, when applied from the CMS, will come through as tags in your RSS feed’s metadata. Your seasons, episode order, and episode labels will all appear to listeners tuning in through Apple Podcasts.
