We’d like to thank you on this Black Friday, for opening your Podcast apps as you travel from shop to shop (or browser tab to browser tab).
You can see in our listener stats overview that we’ve reached parity of listens for Part 1 of Guillermo del Toro’s “Pan’s Labyrinth” when compared to listens for Tim Burton’s “Batman Returns”. You’re amazing! Thanks for venturing into the woods with us, and into more rebel encampments.
Also, with the addition of “Pan’s Labyrinth”, we have also had over 100 listens! Woohoo for you! Woohoo for everyone.
Want to help boost our signal? Use your sharing thumbs to let your friends know about our off-color cinema rants, to help this woman-owned startup climb those podcasting search engine ladders.
May the algorithms ever be on your side, Applauder.
Jonathan will be throwing himself into the editing pit this afternoon (OK, we pushed him), to produce Part 2, in preparation for this Tuesday’s release.
We are in full-on squee mode, and can’t wait for you to hear our dive into the Penguin’s journey of self discovery, the coupling of two costumed night creatures, and more than a few rants about the patriarchy.
Just listening and haven’t subscribed? Go to podcast.shockedandapplaud.com on your mobile device to pull it up in your preferred Podcasting app! Then click that subscribe button, because we’ll have Part 3 out before you realize it’s been another two weeks.
Yes, that’s you, if you’ve even listened through one part of an episode! Go you! Your time is priceless to us.
But, did you know there’s an official way to support us as a Patreon Patron, for as little as $1 a month? It’s true! For the price of a song, you can be the reason our peculiar podcast remains ad-free.
Growth is a science! The Podcast market is flooded, and we’ve decided to take higher ground by not relying on third-party marketing to reach you. That means we rely directly on our listeners to reach new subscribers, so fly, fly our little bumble bees! Pollinate all the things!
As a Patreon Clapper, you’ll get updates on where your dollar goes, just like this post right here, which we generally would save until we provided you with a bonus-filled login at shockedandapplaud.com.
Want to get even more officially licensed as an audience member? Become an Applauder at the $5/month level to receive links to bonus content and uncut (still edited, sorry Jonathan) episodes!
From Shocked & Applaud, thank you for patroning the peculiar!
