PR013 – Dealing with Negative Feedback

Ever receive a negative comment regarding your podcast? How did it feel? How did you respond?

Certainly, if you’ve been podcasting for any significant amount of time there’s no doubt that indeed you’ve received a negative iTunes review, a “bad” comment on your website or a disparaging remark on your podcast’s Facebook page. Perhaps it happened after your first episode!

As podcasters we put our content and ourselves out into the world for anyone to see, hear and comment on. This inevitability means someone isn’t going to like what you say, how you say it or misinterpret your meaning and share their dislike with the world. And in some cases they might be right.

But how do you deal with it? On this Round, myself (Ray Ortega), +Daniel J. Lewis +David Jackson +Max Flight, +Robert Chazz Chute, +Erik Fisher, and +Gary Fawcett discuss the negative feedback we’ve received over our years of podcasting and what we did about it. And trust me, we didn’t always make the right decision.

How do you deal with negative comments about your podcast? Share your experiences below in the comments as you watch along.
