- Listener Comments & Questions:

My show LTV has grown entirely off of interviews. The trick is to ALSO be intimate with your audience...don't do the entire show as an interview if possible.

I don't think podfaded shows need to be removed, I just think they should be further down in search results -- not at the very top.

I think that listening in the car might be impacted by how many people are in the car with you. I know that I don't listen to podcasts if I have someone in the car with me. Do you?

Andrew McGivern
Some of the podfaded shows are still relevant though. If the content is evergreen and still valuable it should still rank... but there are a lot of podcasts that rank that are not evergreen.
