It can be difficult to get noticed in iTunes and one thing that can really make a difference is reviews. If you enjoy the show please take a minute to write an honest review in iTunes, it would be most appreciated.

If you are not sure how to write an iTunes review I have made a couple of videos for my other podcast on how it can be done on desktop or mobile
