I don’t know if you realize this, but there’s actually a newsletter called the Podfeet Press. It’s very simple – it gives you all of the shownotes links for each week’s NosillaCast.
It comes out automagically right after I publish the show, which makes it a handy-dandy reference guide for the links to all of the blog posts. If you subscribe, you don’t have to dig through the shownotes in your podcatcher of choice on a tiny phone screen to find things we’ve talked about on the NosillaCast.
It’s super easy to sign up – go to podfeet.com and in the upper banner on the right there’s a link to the Podfeet Press Signup. Enter your email address and any first and last name you’d like – real or imaginary, and then choose whether you want an html or plain-text email to be sent to your inbox every week.
If you’re on the fence about whether to sign up, on that same page you can preview previous “Campaigns” to see if it looks useful to you. I didn’t name them “campaigns”, that’s what Mailchimp, the automated service that creates these and sends them out for me calls them.
But here’s the best part. At the bottom of every email from the Podfeet Press is a red underlined link that says “Unsubscribe from this list”. If you decide it’s not for you, you can unsubscribe and I promise it will actually stop the emails, unlike the Marriott Bonvoy email list that I’ve unsubscribed from 238 times so far and they keep spamming me.
You might be wondering why there’s no newsletter for Chit Chat Across the Pond. Those podcast episodes, both Lite and Programming By Stealth, are really just one link so it seems kinda unnecessary to send you an email that tells you an episode is up and pretty much nothing more. If you sign up for the Podfeet Press, each week’s NosillaCast has a link to that week’s Chit Chat Across the Pond if there was one.
Give the Podfeet Press a try and see if you like it – and if you don’t, that’s totally cool too.
