Choose Your Phone Number
With all plans you also get a dedicated local number (US and Canada only, currently) included! You can easily search for a number within any area code you want.
Just continue updating your podcast as your normally do, we handle the rest automatically!
All your users need is access to a phone. They just dial the dedicated number you selected and then listen at their convenience...all at no charge them to them.
If you have listeners in other countries, they can also dial any of our global numbers and enter the six-digit podcast code.
Note: While Dial-a-Podcast does not impose any fees on callers, dialing long distance or international numbers would be charged at the callers carriers rate — as one would normally expect.
Church attendance by age
According to Pew's latest poll, American's 65 and older were the most likely to attend church, with 48% attending weekly.
Internet usage by age
However, in the current environment where those 65+ years old are at risk of COVID-19, many are not able to attend church in person. Many of us have turned to online video streaming so we can attend church virtually, but a 2019 Pew Research Study shows that 27% of American's aged 65 and over do not use the internet.
Telephone access by age
Yet, telephone access remains a near universal access system with a 2004 U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics report showing 96.1% of US adults 55 and older have either a cell phone and/or land line. This makes it an ideal and easy-to-use medium for sharing audio content.
