How I made my podcast available (almost) everywhere
Should I make my podcast exclusive to one service, or make it available everywhere? This is a question many people ask themselves. The way I see it, listeners will use their App or service of choice, so don't miss out on potential listeners thinking you need to be exclusive.
Unless someone offers you a highly lucrative deal to provide a podcast exclusively, you really have no reason to miss out listeners who use other platforms.
I submitted my Podcast to all of these services successfully and (shameless plug) you can check it out here.

I use Anchor to distribute my Podcast and while they do a great job, I found that by grabbing the RSS feed from Anchor in the settings menu, I was able to also add my podcast to the above services, making it reachable by an even wider audience, which is important to get my message out, and increase the reach for my guests.
That being said there are numerous paid and free Podcast services which will host it for you. Anchor was the right fit for me but always do your own research to find the best solution for you.
Social Media Posts
I use Headliner to create audiograms, which are images with transcriptions of the speech, plus a waveform for a visual aspect. Headliner has a free offering which is more than sufficient, I then upload these to my Facebook page, Instagram and YouTube channels.
