As the WCoC Sermon Podcast gains momentum both here at home, and on the international stage, we are proud to announce that over this past week, our application for a Google Play podcast channel has been approved.
This is great news because it now potentially doubles our reach to the world and allows a much larger audience the option to subscribe to the sermon podcasts. This is the case because it now makes it much easier for Android subscribers to dial in to the podcast using native apps. Previously it was sometimes necessary to install additional apps to access the Apple-based iTunes podcasts because of course the iPhone devices favor iTunes; whereas Google Play is favored by Android.
At the time of writing this article, the WCoC podcasts have had over 2,300 hits. These have been largely in the US, but we have also seen high numbers of hits in some surprising countries including Japan (see previous article) and more recently a growing following in the Netherlands.
We hope that by adding Google Play as a new way to access our podcasts, we will continue to increase our listener base around the globe.
It is fascinating how this new era of internet technology has opened up new and powerful ways to share the word of God and the love of Christ Jesus. Now Bob’s teachings can reach new brothers and sisters who may not otherwise have regular access to such high caliber sermons as delivered each week by our dear Minister Bob Kolodner. We are so blessed to have him as our Minister and to have regular access to his wonderful teaching and guidance.
