Video Tutorial: How to leave me feedback about podcasts using the voice message feature on Anchor

By Seth Singleton

Do you ever wish you could tell someone on television that they were doing it wrong? It’s not that you are mean or that you are trying to hurt them, but you see something that they don’t or can’t.

What about radio?

Do you ever hear something that would sound better or if it was said differently?

It happens to me.

It’s not something that I try to do intentionally, but if I am listening or watching and I hear something that sounds wrong, my mind immediately pictures what it would sound like if it was better.

Then I wonder if there is some way that someone could have told them. Maybe I could have told them. But how?

When I post things I know that there is always a chance that I am doing it wrong. There is a mistake that I will miss or not catch. At some point, I know that I will hear or see or read the mistake and then I will hopefully fix it.

But, what if it wasn’t just up to me to catch the mistakes. What if other people could let me know too?

I think I could catch more errors.

Would that change things for me?

I think it would help me improve the quality of each new post.

Would I be aware of my mistakes earlier if someone let me know that I had made a mistake?

I would try to remember each reminder before I made a new post so that I could improve the quality and the content.

Would it have to be only mistakes?

I hope not. Don’t get me wrong, the value of someone pointing out what I did wrong is invaluable, but so is the idea of someone giving me support when I get it right.

Criticism or support can reveal how to turn a topic into a theme or series by changing my approach.

Use Your Voice

That’s one of the main reasons why I am glad that there is a message feature available through the Anchor platform.

Not only can you leave me your feedback, but you can do it in your voice.

Not sure how to spell the thing that you want to say?

Need to put some emphasis on a few words that will make all the difference in what you are trying to say?

Here’s your chance

The voice message service is one way that you can give me feedback on my podcasts. It’s also a great way for you and me to connect, and for me to hear how I can provide you with the content that you want.

To help you see how this works, I have included a series of screenshots and two short videos.

If you did not feel like reading everything above you can watch this short video about why I want to hear from you.

Podcast – This is why you shouldn’t count your chickens before they hatch = 5 stories of Expectation vs. Reality Russia 2018 World Cup

By Seth Singleton

Expectation and Reality share a fabled history.

Like two sides of a coin, each has landed on success and failure.

The 2018 World Cup in Russia had many predictions about Ronaldo, Messi, Russia and more.

These are a few moments when expectation met reality:

  1. When I overslept or slept in and spent the morning trying to catch up on the game scores and highlights, all while my Frenchie snored in my ear and the microphone.

  2.  The diverging paths of Ronaldo and Messi.

  3.  Iran and Serbia have gone from underrated to recognition.

  4.  Neymar and Brazil found relief and redemption.

  5. Why stories of Expectation vs Reality are important

    There’s more…

Top 5 Reasons I Recorded “Do Superheroes Ever Have This Problem?” on my Anchor Podcast and Why I Plan to Record Them All

By Seth Singleton

Storytelling was originally an auditory experience

The first stories were spoken aloud. They told you how to find food, which plants were used to heal, and the history of the place where you lived.

Books-to-read

Not everyone is able to read

Like listening to audiobooks, podcasts allow people to hear the information they want when they are driving to work, working at a job that allows them to think, or just enjoying a walk or run. Age and eyestrain can make reading a story on a screen more work than enjoyment. Now, when reading hurts, you have another option.

It’s another way to send a message

In the past, messages were sent by pigeon, by smoke, and even invisible ink. Sometimes one person had the job of shouting announcements from a central location. In other examples, a team provided hourly announcements or relayed messages from one location to another, miles away.

I grew up listening to stories on the radio

The radio was always on in the house where I was raised. It was a family radio station. Hosts provided commentary and discussion, and there were scheduled times for story hour. On Saturday mornings, I listened to the adventures of Ranger Bill and his old sidekick Stumpy.

I believe in fostering the imagination

Listening to the radio taught me how to use my imagination. It’s similar to reading a book instead of seeing the movie. The author gives you the details and the descriptions that make the story come alive. You get to fill in the spaces like a coloring book. The story becomes personal when your brain creates the images that bring it to life for you.
