Listener Comments about last week’s episode “SLS128: Worried Podcast Advertisers”:

Steve Carter who sent us a great Audio comment last week about YouTube Stats:

Rob / Alex, Thank you for the clarification on how YouTube plays are counted as part of the Spreaker stats.

I'm on the first "pro" level of service which means the listener stats are basic. I'll revisit the CMS stats section again, but at the basic level I don't believe I can see the source of listens.

I see the daily bar graph of listens (downloads and plays) and the individual episode downloads and plays. It's not particularly important to me to have more comprehensive stats, at least right now.

Thanks also for the kind comments about my voice and website. For now, I'm using a Google Sites website with a redirect from GoDaddy for the URL. Depending on whether the podcast gets more traction, I may invest in a more robust site; for now, the present site does what it needs to do at zero cost.

My podcast is 97% clean. A curse word may slip out once in a while from a guest or myself. Not often, I actually sort of cringe a little when it slips out.

I also prefer Skype to Google Hang Outs for video call recording. OBS hates Hang Outs and makes it very laggy, both in video and audio.
