This podcast may use tracking and attribution, dynamic content insertion and uses a unique domain

Stats: Statistics are produced by Libsyn and Chartable to help Ask the Podcast Coach to understand how many downloads it is getting, or how many people are listening. Your device’s IP address and user agent is used to help calculate this figure. Libsyn and Chartable are IAB v2 certified.

Tracking and attribution: Chartable or its partners may connect the fact you listened to this podcast to an action elsewhere on the internet. For example - it may spot a device that downloaded an episode of Ask the Podcast Coach later visited the website of an advertiser; or it may track that a device that listened to Ask the Podcast Coach also listened to a different show. This form of attribution is used to measure advertising effectiveness.

Dynamic content insertion: Libsyn may use limited data that they know about you - the device you’re using, the approximate location you’re in, or other data that can be derived from this, like the current weather forecast for your area - to change parts of the audio. Ask the Podcast Coach may do this for advertising or for other forms of content, like news stories.

Ask the Podcast Coach is able to use the above tools since its podcast host or measurement company offers this service. It doesn’t mean that this individual podcast uses them, or has access to this functionality. We use open data.

This podcast uses a unique RSS domain. This podcast is the only one that we’re aware of which uses a domain of askthepodcastcoach.libsyn.com for its RSS feed. Domains are always visible to anyone who can see your internet traffic - your internet service provider, employer or even your government - even when you use HTTPS connections. If your podcast app uses the RSS feed directly, you can be tracked as a listener to this podcast every time your phone checks for a new episode.

Here’s more about insecure links and unique domains.

Information for podcasters

Get a universal link

https://podnews.net/podcast/i34w/listen is a so-called universal link: it will automatically open Google Podcasts on Android phones, Apple Podcasts on iOS devices, or this page. Both Apple Podcasts and the Google Podcasts player are pre-installed on every phone.

A QR code to this URL is a great way to share your podcast. You’ll find a QR code at the top of this page on desktop. It’s particularly ideal for business cards, posters or conventions.

But - you are always better to fully control your own podcast and not rely on any third-party - even us. So, here’s the code to add a universal link to your own website. Copy/paste this HTML into a new file on your website, and link to that instead.

Don’t code? Here are more universal link providers you can use.

Privacy: The player will download audio directly from Libsyn if you listen. That shares data (like your IP address or details of your device) with them.
Affiliate links: This page links to Apple Podcasts. We may receive a commission for purchases made via those links.
