The News October 2019

Month Of Spooky 2019

RAS News Update - Blog PostFrom time to time I like to bring you up to date on the News as it relates to Ron’s Amazing Stories.

The 400th Episode:
The biggest news is that this week we present our 400th episode of the show. If you had told me on episode one that we would reach 400, I wouldn’t have been so sure. It was a slow start back then and having 50 or 60 people download the show was exciting. Now it’s thousands of people and growing. We are on the radio where they tell me it is as much as 83,000 people are listening. Crazy to think about. But I have you to thank for it.  So, here is to 100 more.

The Month Of Spooky 2019 Begins:
My favorite time of year. Many of you have told me that really the podcast is celebrating spooky all year round now. I would have to agree with that, but we still have that special month where it just seems more spooky and the stories get even crazier. This year we begin the season with Jim Harold co-hosting and four amazing UFO stories sent in by you guys. Slyvia and Jason will be back as well and without any doubt, the month is going to be even more spooky.

The Numbers:
I have started looking at numbers from all over the place. Podcasting has become a big business and tracking the success of these shows has become a full-time job for people. One thing that has changed in the past few months is the categories. In the beginning, the show was under “Performing Arts”, which I think you will agree does not describe us. Our main category now is fiction, which has been a game-changer. Keep in mind that these numbers represent just apple podcasts which are about 30% of our audience.
