Me: Hey, Apple, I’d love to submit my new podcast for inclusion in your iTunes Store podcast directory! Do you have a web form I can use?

Apple: We’d love to have you submit your podcast! All you have to do is download our desktop iTunes application and submit it through there.


Apple: Don’t worry! It’s only 145 megs.


(minutes pass)

Me: OK, fine. I’ll download your terrible, terrible piece of software just to submit what could be done with a simple web form.

(more minutes pass, downloading happens, submission happens)

Apple: We’ve got your submission! We’ll get back to you.

(a day passes)

Apple: Sorry. We’re not including your podcast. It could be for “a variety of reasons.”

Me: (throws head back and screams)
