The weekly podcast about vinyl records and the people who collect them.


If you are on this page then no doubt you are a true Vinyl Examiner.

As many of you listeners know, The Vinyl Exam podcast was born out of a supreme love for vinyl records - the feel of them, the artwork, the memories attached to finding these gems, and, of course, the music hidden in their grooves. We do this show simply because we love it. But we need your help to continue going strong. Below are a few things you can do to help us out:

1: Subscribe + 1

From this list, this is really the one thing we care about most. We want to create a community of music lovers around the vinyl record, and by subscribing to our show, you become part of that community. And make sure to find a buddy, a friend, a family member who loves music as much as you do and get them to subscribe too. 

Subscribe here: iTunes, Stitcher, Soundcloud, Podomatic

Welcome to the family! 

2: Give us Dap on iTunes 

Rate and Review our show on iTunes. Practically every podcast you listen to will ask you to rate and review them on iTunes. That’s because all podcast producers know something that most folks don’t; and that’s that having a 5-star iTunes ratings with some amazing reviews will push your podcast to new listeners. The magic algorithms operate like that. 

So if you’re feeling generous, write something nice about us HERE. And let us know, we’ll give you a shoutout to show our appreciation.

3: Become a Patron

Join our community of Vinyl Examiners on our Patreon Crowdfunding Page. This is one of the best ways to help us grow our podcast. By becoming a patron, you immediately get access to our exclusive newsletter - Liner Notes - and a ton of fantastic awards, producer credits, and special surprise giveaways. Our Patreon page is where we put out exclusive content, meaning we will have secret material that will *not* be featured on the podcast or website. Serious. 

4: Say Hello

We are pretty active on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook (all using the handle @TheVinylExam). And we love hearing from our listeners. For one, it helps us improve the show because we’ll know what you like and what you don’t like. But more importantly, we just love talking with fellow vinyl-enthusiasts and music-lovers.

Connect with us!

5: Pitch us ideas for new episodes

We’d love to hear your crazy ideas. 


We really appreciate all the support you are giving us. We love making The Vinyl Exam, but we also love knowing we have the support of Vinyl Examiners the world over.
