The simplest way to support a podcast is to leave a review on whatever platforms you can. This is a great way to give feedback to the podcasters while also boosting their rankings.
While not as tangible as a review, word of mouth can also be an effective way to support podcasts. Tell all your friends and social media followers to help the podcast gain even more listeners.
