Somehow My Podcast Was Approved for iTunes (& Opportunity to Win Free Books & Course Access) - This Is Trouble

Somehow My Podcast Was Approved for iTunes (& Opportunity to Win Free Books & Course Access)

This is one of the coolest fucking things that has happened to me as a result of writing this blog.

And I’ve had some pretty rewarding stories from a lot of readers over the (nearly) three years I’ve been writing This Is Trouble.

So, big announcement:

Troublesome Radio is Now on ITUNES!

Apple is a little slow on updating the main image, and it’s classified as EXPLICIT, but I can live with both of those. I like the fact that Apple thinks I’m a little bit edgy, so to speak.

I’m surprised it was approved, as I’d applied to Apple way back on December 20th, and hadn’t heard a thing. I figured it was one of those, “Don’t call us, we’ll call you”, kind of situations – and frankly, it probably wouldn’t have even been worth the time to try to hunt someone from Apple down.

But a few days ago I Googled “Troublesome Radio” for shits and giggles, and it popped up. Unable to believe my eyes, I clicked on it – and lo’ and behold, there it was. The only issue being that apparently Apple doesn’t like .m4a files – which is the default Soundcloud file type when you upload. As a result, I had to rip every one of my podcasts down, convert the file type, and then re-upload to Soundcloud.

And then I waited for Apple to refresh it, which apparently can take anywhere from an hour to a day.

The good news is that it’s all working.

So…let’s have a contest, because I want to get the reviews on iTunes built up.

I’m going to give away a ton of free shit if there are enough reviews.

#1: Access to my upcoming system – The Harem Handbook. This is a fully interactive course, with videos, interactive spreadsheets for tracking progress (like online dating response rates and $$ spent on dates), and all sorts of other goodies.

#2: A copy of Cracking OkCupid.

Here are the rules:

  1. You must write the review from a legitimate iTunes account.
  2. For every TEN reviews, I will give away one access code to The Harem Handbook (slated for an April release) and one copy of Cracking OkCupid. This means you have a 20% chance of getting a freebie.*
  3. This means that if I get fifty reviews, I’ll give away 5 access codes and 5 copies, up to a max of ten each.
  4. If you do not want access to THH, you can substitute it for a copy of COKC.
  5. If you do not want COKC, or already own a copy, you can substitute for a profile review or a copy of my upcoming book (March 7th) Trouble In Hungary (which includes a Tinder travel guide).
  6. After you leave your iTunes review, post a comment below stating that you have (doesn’t have to include your iTunes username, but make sure I can get in touch with you somehow).

* There must be at least ten total reviews.

And…that’s it.

20% chance of winning is pretty damn good.

Well, gents. This is hard to do. Apparently you can’t see reviews until there are enough.

No idea what that minimum is.

So when the time comes, I WILL give away course access, but it may take a few more reviews. I’ll select out of those who did it within a week of this posting.
