How to Review a Podcast on Apple iTunes, Step-by-Step Instructions (Important for Writers)

I make no bones about my love of podcasts, Gentle Reader, in fact I have one of my own (20 Minute Delay) all about travel hacks.

One of the things that really helps podcasts (in much the same way that it helps books) is reviews. For Podcasts the best place to put those reviews is on Apple, because they kind of own the ecosystem. (For books, it’s Amazon.) Whether you consume using that platform is kinda irrelevant.

However, it is HARD to review a podcast on Apple! Especially on a desktop.

Well the amazing Kelly recently showed me how much easier it is to do on the phone, so I thought I would also tell you all.

How to Review a Podcast on Apple/iTunes

In 5 Easy Steps

You need to have Apple’s native “Podcasts” app installed on your mobile device. You don’t have to use it to consume podcasts (in fact I recommend Overcast myself).

Open the app and get started.

1. Click on the “Search” option at the bottom.

2. Type in the name of the podcast you are looking to review:

For example “20 Minute Delay” click on “search” or the name of the podcast if it came up.

3. Click on the podcast image (AKA it’s card).

4. Scroll to the very bottom to the Ratings & Reviews section.

5. There you can give it a rating and write a review. It’s easy to just do a star rating if that’s all you want to do, but adding a nice few sentences is always better.

And there you have it, one kind way to give back that doesn’t cost money.

How to Marry a Werewolf (In 10 Easy Steps) ~ A Claw & Courtship Novella by Gail Carriger features a certain white wolf we all love to hate (except those of us weirdos who love to love him).

Guilty of an indiscretion? Time to marry a werewolf.

Rejected by her family, Faith crosses the Atlantic, looking for a marriage of convenience and revenge. But things are done differently in London. Werewolves are civilized. At least they pretend to be.

Bookshelf Fantasies says:

“This is a charming novella that works as a stand-alone, although prior experience with Gail Carriger’s steampunk/supernatural world certainly is helpful (and possibly even essential). I love everything about her books, and this piece fits nicely into the world she’s created…”

    Completely random comment – I’ve just worked out the line about “no-one expects an enchantment; it’s like the Spanish Inquisition” in “the Sumage Solution” from trawling TVTropes and finding the Monty Python memes page. Sometimes I wonder what happened to proper educations – mine was lacking in certain areas!
