The first Anne is a Man audio Promo - by Jim Mowatt

38 seconds PROMO for Anne is a Man:

This is my first audio promo. Jim Mowatt of the Historyzine podcast did the text and I fumbled with some podsafe music by Muzyka Dawna from Poznan (Poland). If you appreciate my blog and especially if you were happy with a review you found here, I invite you to play this promo on your podcast or place it on your website. Let me know, when you do.

You can download the promo or embed it. To embed, first click the 'SHARE' link on the player above. Then copy the code to clipboard and then paste it into the code of your web page.

I'll continue to work on the subject of audio promo's, so keep posted.

Subject: your reviews are indispensable to me

Dear Anne,

I can't thank you enough for your blog. I'm lucky enough to have a job, hobbies, commute, and home life that allow me to listen to podcasts several hours a day. Until I found your site (via recommendation on the Historyzine podcast) I was running out of quality shows. I have found other podcast reviewers focus either too narrowly on a specific subject (e.g. physics for physics majors/professionals) or too broadly to a general (and, though it sounds patronizing, pedestrian and tasteless) audience. Your reviews are, for me, just right. Your taste is excellent, your reviews informative and honest, and your site setup makes it so easy for me to locate and subscribe to casts.

I am amazed by all the altruism on the web. From freeware to reviews so many people have enriched my life out of the goodness of their hearts. Thank you again for your help and all the time and effort you put in to making quality podcasts known. You're a mensch.
