🔁 Let’s Make Podcasts More Accessible
Caroline Mincks, writing for Sounds Profitable, assesses the publication itself in terms of deaf accessibility:
I ran an informal poll on my Twitter where I posed the question “Have you ever given up on/not bothered with a podcast because it was in some way inaccessible to you?” …out of 372 responses to the poll, 74.5% said that yes, they had avoided a show because of a lack of accommodations. That is 277 people - an overwhelming majority. 277 potential audience members. 277 people who could consume, rate, and review your podcast. 277 people who could share it with friends, family, and colleagues and grow your base (and, by extension, your earnings) exponentially.
