How to support podcasters

Podcasters spend a lot of time and effort producing high-quality podcasts, not only for developers but for every niche possible. How can you support their efforts and let them know that their time was well spent?

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.

Many podcasts can also be financially contributed to via memberships or one-off payments like boosts. Boosts are a form of direct feedback and direct financial contribution via Bitcoin.
