Since people ask now and then, here’s how you can help:

Spread the word. Tell a friend. Tell all of your friends. Tell your weird uncle. Tweet about the podcast. Use ___________ (insert other social media site) to ____________ (insert social media site-related verb) about it. Blog about it. Write articles about it. Interview me. Whatever.

If you hear a Memory Palace piece on the radio (they pop up on public radio now and then, here and there) write to the station or program on which you heard it. Tell them you liked it. Tell them you’d like to hear more.

Write an review and rate it on iTunes. iTunes rankings work not off raw numbers of downloads or listens or whatnot but off activity (I’m told). The more people are downloading and subscribing and rating and writing reviews the higher a podcast moves up the rankings. The higher a podcast moves, the more prominently it gets displayed, the more just-curious listeners it gets. Virtuous circles and all that.

Donate. On this site or over on the Maximum Fun site.

Follow me on Twitter and/or Facebook. There are gatekeepers out there for whom how many followers someone has really, really matter.

-Hire me to create a Memory Palace audio-tour for your museum or historic site. If you happen to have one lying around. It’s just something I’ve wanted to do. That’s all.

    A wonderful story and a great ending. I’ve always loved your podcast and stories and the note at the beginning was one of the most convincing I’ve heard – one of TAL’s may have edged you out, but you both appealed to my love of the art of what you do, so I’ll head over and sign up now. Thanks.

    Picture a Box, so moving, I don’t have the words but had to say something.

    Hey Nate,

    I’m Nija Dalal, and I curate nights of audio docs in Manchester, UK. I’m part of a group called In the Dark Radio: You might have noticed a mention of us in The Conversation’s piece about radio:

    Are you happy to let me play some out as ‘spreading the word’??

    These are live events, and all money raised through donations goes to support more creative radio-making:

    Love your description of her voice–“puff pastry.” :o)
