Many of you know Giving Tuesday as the yearly celebration of giving, generosity and helping each other out post-Thanksgiving. “Giving” can mean donating, volunteering, thanking or another act of generosity. But wouldn’t it be better if generosity, thankfulness, and donation of time and resources was a regular occurrence?
As part of the campaign, podcasters can give other creators what they want more than anything else – new listeners!
Every Tuesday, Tracy Hazzard, host of The Binge Factor, will release a short, special episode recommending two or more podcasts to her subscribers. Listen in to get great new and under-appreciated shows that deserve more listeners.
