Q. How do I tune in?
A. See our How To Tune In To The Daily SearchCast page for extensive instructions.
Q. What's this "chat room" I keep hearing about?
A. The chat room is where people gather to listen to the live broadcast and discuss what's being said. You're welcome to take part in the chat and give feedback to the hosts, as they present. The chat room is here. Just log in when the show goes out, and you can take part in the fun.
Q. Is there really singing on the show?
A. Occasionally, but it's generally not very long and only if Danny feels there's a particular song well suited to being mutilated to fit the day's search news. Many people also jog and exercise to the show, so we're trying to help them out with a little music.
Q. Where can I hear examples of the singing?
A. Sadly, we've not tagged shows that specifically contain singing. However, a good example of what you're likely to hear is covered here: Danny Sullivan's American Idol Audition.
Q. That singing was awful. How do I prevent ever hearing such sounds again?
A. We agree, the singing is bad. Be assured that you will never hear songs to such length on the actual show. At worst, you'd be subjected to maybe 10 to 15 seconds, often with a warning, so you can use your fast forward button.
Q. I'm one of those who listens when exercising. Is it true you might put a soundtrack to the show?
A. At the Daily SearchCast, we're always thinking about new ways to deliver content, plus we are open to new ideas. We've discussed the idea of running songs with good, fast beats as a background to the show, as an alternative option for those on the go. We know listeners are tuning in while skiing, rowing, jogging and so on. Reassured we might make it happen someday.
Q. There's too much banter. Can't I get a more serious show?
A. Extensive research has shown that 92.3 percent of our listeners enjoy the banter. We're sticking with it. However, we do try to ensure that the banter doesn't side-track from the show's main purpose, to keep you up to speed on search news.
Q. How do I advertise on the show? How do I contact someone about it?
A. See our About page!
Q. Why's it called the Daily SearchCast when it only happens weekly.
A. I got tired. Going weekly was a way to recover some energy. It might go back to daily down the line.
