Everything About Reality TV Updates! [11-19-2019]

           I wanted to take the time to make this announcement post and to give you guys heads up you will now hear a 15 - 30 spot before the intro roles as it normal does and the reason is the podcast is an affiliate and that is all I really want to say but this is a great opportunity and I am sure it will take some time before things pick up. However I can say on the Stitcher side of the platforms that the podcast is with well the views are up which is great and means it is starting to pick up. That isn't the only good thing as you probably noticed Castbox is back and yes I got it back up and it's gaining subscribers pretty quick which is incredible. Also I noticed this a few weeks back but Everything About Reality TV Podcast is also on IHeartRadio which a friend of mine said it is very hard to get on which is true but hey Everything About Reality TV got picked and I am forever grateful for this opportunity. Now back to the 15 - 30 spot, it is hard to explain but you will hear it 2 days from tonight what it is sounds like and I can say it is awesome to add a 15 - 30 second spot promoting Stitcher Premium that I can say. Hopefully that does help explain but like I said you will hear it 2 days from this evening as I will be add it in before the intro.

          I am excited to be an affiliate with Stitcher and have the opportunity to promote their product. Going to Stitcher was the best thing I ever did for the podcast 3 years ago and I was there even when they were still growing as a platform and having issues but I stuck by them even when I took a break I still came back and their platform and staff have been nothing but great to me. This also includes TuneIn, ITunes, Player FM, Castbox and all the platforms my podcast as they have been amazing especially when I had a question or concern with my feed they would help me out with the problem so I am forever grateful for the help when I struggle with things.  Either way it has been a very productive journey and it is now no secret as I said in the post 2 days ago that I have decided to continue or move forward with future seasons of the podcast. I cannot wait for you guys to hear this week's episode as I am changing things around and it will sound different for sure and a lot better this week then it has in the past!

What Makes A Good Podcast?

                What makes a good podcast? Several things that makes a good podcast and that is what I am going to talk about today is what makes a good podcast and also give you tips to become a successful podcaster, like myself and many other amazing podcasts out there. 

1)     Good audio, having crisp and clear audio, my recommendation is 128 KBPS (Kilobytes Per Second) is the best setting for your audio sound. I also do recommend MP3 format for your podcast which sounds amazing if you ask me.

2) Use the platforms that will get you good views and I highly recommend staying on Audio Only as it has brought tons of viewers but if you want to do video that is also fine as well, it is totally up to the podcaster and what you are most comfortable with podcasting on. The more platforms you are on the better, not necessary, go on the ones that you think you will be successful on then it is totally up to you.

3) Choosing your platforms you wanna be on, I.E. Stitcher,, Player.FM,, Mixcloud, ITunes.

4) The platforms I do highly recommend to try and use for podcasts are Stitcher,, Player.FM,

5) Lengthwise? Well it up to you, it can be 15 minutes, 20 - 30 minutes, it can be an hour but I recommend, if you guys do not mind me recommending but you can try the other ones that are listed on here. 

6) The ones that I recommend to you guys can try but again, it is totally up to you guys the Podcaster to where you would like to have your podcast on. The ones I do recommend are,, Player.FM, those are the platforms I am on and love every moment and highly recommend them, especially Player.FM as they featured my podcast under Reality TV Roundup, so you could end up featured on there! TuneIn, you grow fast and the furious and loving the platform all together. 

                 The most important part of podcasts is your sound quality so people can understand what you are saying or if you are doing a music type of podcast, please note you have to have a music license to play it, you gotta make sure the quality is crisp and clear. Also platforms that will help you grow in the long run, like I mentioned above. If you do what I said above, you will be a huge success. Don't stress if it is perfect, you will perfect it in time, just be patient! Have a great night!

What Platforms Has My Podcast Been On?

             I have been doing podcasts since September 2015, as you know my history of Everything About Reality TV starting on YouTube, now on Audio ONLY platforms and this is why I am writing today's blog post is to talk about platforms you can podcast on and which ones you should be on. Let me say this first, it doesn't matter what platform you are on, it is the platforms that works for you and I am going to talk about which ones I am on and why, but also the different platforms I have discovered over the course of the last year that you can get your podcast on. 

     The primary platform my podcast is on and it has been a great platform and if you need an RSS, this is a great platform to grow on and that's another blog post for another day talking about Growth. But when I moved over from Mixcloud due to the viewership on there wasn't overly the greatest and was hard to get a following on there that is why I chose and I think I found this site through Rob Has A Podcast (RHAP) if I remember correctly. I am still currently with them to this current time and loving how my podcast has grown so fast.

               Stitcher: It was another great platform but the problem I did have with them and I am not putting them down and I think it was because of the growth of their website which does put a smile but if you want to grow you have to break the website, someway, somehow. I know that with my own website. But after 4 - 6 months I started to grow on there but the problem was the feed wasn't updating or took over 2 hours for a 30 min - 45 min podcast, but they told me it was their site is growing which is a great thing. I will be forever grateful for them allowing me on their website as a start to my podcasting career so I am very humble for the opportunity there. 

       Tunein, I absolutely love, been a great experience and I have grown on there with currently 8 favorites and Tunein is a huge for Radio Stations & Podcasts, even local stations here, Toronto and all over Canada and the world. So it is worth it to get onto TuneIn if you want to grow. 

                  Player FM: Player FM is one of my favorite platforms as currently I am featured with them under Reality TV Round-Up which is very cool and I proud of actually being recognized for the hard work I have done in the last year. You can now say I am among the other great podcasters out there like RHAP (Rob Has A Podcast)

                   ITunes: Was great to be on one of the bigger platforms once again, but again I had some technical issues with it but a lot of the views I'm sure came from there, but obviously as you know I had to pull out of there, however I may return there in the near future but highly recommend it if you wanna grow as a podcast.

                   So which one's do I recommend to use? Well it depends which platform or platforms you wanna be on and are doing well on, so it has to do with the podcast individual or individuals choice of preference  and I am only giving my opinion on the ones I have been with but these are the main ones I am or was involved with in the past.

So Many Problems I Can Take Right Now!

       Right now I am showing my frustration of waiting almost 2 hours for a post to come up on Stitcher and this has happened today once again after I posted the BB19 the other day and it never showed and I started to feel discouraged that I am not going very far even though the stats on Stitcher have been better then usual and been getting views from the Stitcher platform but what bothers me the length of it what it takes for the podcast to show up, usually the longest is an hour, an hour and a half which is fine with me but 2 hours or more or for it to not show up. This is not the first time I have had this issue and this time I had to really think about the future of Everything About Reality TV and I know Justin Milner my former Staff member kind of mentioned to me about leaving Stitcher few months back and with great sadness I am announcing in this blog post I am leaving Stitcher after 9 months of being with their amazing platform and it was the toughest decision I have yet to made within the last year well 2nd toughest decision to me letting go my entire team so I can go more on a solo project but sometimes you gotta let go and that is what I did in this instance. 

         I am not saying I am not happy, I was kind of more frustrated by the situation, however I am humble to be a part of the platform for the length that I have lasted with them. I am not only Humble but proud to be part of the platform and was a great starter for me and my podcast. It does stinks I am leaving when I started to get more traffic on it but I will try and explain it on the next podcast as best as I can. Like the saying goes, one door closes and not being on Stitcher doesn't mean Everything About Reality TV isn't done, because it isn't, the podcast is still on,, & of course on ITunes. So the podcast is still out there and losing out on a partnership isn't the end of the world, these small setbacks happens and I know I will continue to succeed in the podcast even on my own website,, TuneIn & ITunes. Getting onto ITunes came at the right time to help the podcast out even with the recent departure on one platform, I am on another one. Stitcher was a great start for me and I will never forget this experience and cannot thank Stitcher Staff enough for everything, their love and support throughout the last 9 months. I may be a bit a pain in emails but they know I want nothing but the best for Everything About Reality TV and for it to be successful. In conclusion of tonight's rather late blog post, change sometimes is good and I think this change will be really good for the podcast and if I ever want to return to Stitcher I can in the near future and let em know I would like my feed back I can always request it in the nearby future.

Have a Great Night!
