Podcasts have seen a significant rise in popularity over the past few years, becoming a staple form of entertainment for many of us. Whether it’s commuting to work, exercising, or just unwinding after a long day, podcasts provide a unique blend of entertainment and education.

If you’re a podcast enthusiast, you might be wondering how to show appreciation for your favorite shows — particularly smaller, niche shows that do not have big advertising budgets or celebrity hosts.

One of the best ways is by leaving reviews and ratings. In this guide, we’ll walk you through how to leave podcast reviews on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and Podchaser.

Why Are Reviews Important?

Before we dive into the ‘how’, let’s understand why reviews matter:

Supporting Your Favorite Podcasts: A review can provide encouragement and valuable feedback for the creators.

Influencing Podcast Rankings: Reviews and ratings help boost the podcast’s visibility, helping it reach a larger audience.

Guiding Potential Listeners: Your review can provide insights for potential listeners and help them decide whether a podcast is right for them.
