Fields of Opinion
The spreadsheet contains some fields that must contain values of opinion, as opposed to factual ones. For example, “Ease of Use” and “Overall Appearance” are fields that contain ratings that are derived from the opinions of the Orange Feed Network. As such, these fields should not be interpreted as anything more than opinion.
In relation to our determining of opinionated fields, we decide based solely on concrete and repeatable factors and are not persuaded, monetarily or otherwise, to change our opinions, recommendations, or portrayals of any podcast host.
The Orange Feed Network has affiliate agreements with all podcast hosts who offer it. This only affects the “Discount” column of the spreadsheet, and in no way changes any data, positioning, or further portrayal of those affiliate hosts, or other non-affiliate hosts.
