    Hey Jonathan – not sure if this is an android specific issue but I can’t listen to the podcast because the pinterest pin it button is super-imposed over the play button. If I press play or click on the download like I get asked to login to pinterest rather than hear the content. Would love to listen to this episode… thanks

    1. Michael – I have an Android phone. I listen to all of my podcasts, including this one, via a free app called Beyond Pod. I hear Stitcher is another great app for podcasting, although I haven’t tried that one myself yet.

  2. This episode REALLY helped me out and shed some light for me. I’ve dabbled with Pinterest just a little bit, but didn’t realize the full potential I could be getting from it. I had no idea people “pinned” pictures as a way of bookmarking posts for later use. The “Pinterest Pin It Button for Images” plugin is awesome!! I was having trouble with my generic Pinterest sharing buttons always choosing the wrong images to pin. This strategy might even help me drive traffic to some of my niche sites as well – not to mention the links that these pins create! Thanks for another awesome episode.
