Please Support Our Show – Nominate Us for a Podcast Award

Your reviews on iTunes. Your emails. Contest entries. Posts on our blog. We ask for so little.

I know what you’re thinking: What else can I do to help support my friends at the Napoleon 101 Podcast?

This year for the first time ever we’re going to go for an official Podcast Award from

Will you help?

1) Just click the link to go to

2) Click on the small blue text in the top box that says “Click here to nominate.”

3) When there, you can enter us in People’s Choice and one other category. But since we probably will never win the People’s Choice, don’t bother with that one.

Just nominate us in the Education category. Don’t nominate us for any other category – if you nominate us for more than one category (with the exception of “People’s Choice,”) neither vote counts!

You have to fill out our show’s name and our URL like this:

Napoleon 101

4) Then, you have to go to the bottom of the page and enter your name, your email, and whether you’re a podcaster, listener or both.

5) Hit “Submit” and you’re done!

You can only nominate us once, so when you’ve taken care of this, you’re done!

Will you take three minutes and help us out? We’d really appreciate it.

And if you have other podcasts you enjoy, be sure to nominate them, too. Especially shows on The Podcast Network. Spread the love. (Just not in the “Education” category, OK?)

Thank you, thank you, thank you. It would mean a lot to us to be nominated.

We Love To Hear From Our Listeners.
