It’s a new year, and with that, we know many of you have goals to really take your podcast to the next level! Our team is always looking for ways to support exactly that, so we’re thrilled to kick off 2020 with our Podchaser partnership!
What is Podchaser?
In a nutshell, Podchaser is like the IMDb of podcasting with a social layer. Podchaser boasts a wide range of features including podcast and episode reviews, user-curated lists, custom categories, over four million creator and guest credits, the ability to follow friends, podcasts, and creators, and much more. With their recent activity feed feature, users can see all of this engagement in real-time leading to more discovery. It’s really cool!
So what does this partnership mean for you? While Podchaser is a great platform to simply distribute your podcast to (via our one-click distribution), it’s actually a lot more than that! But before we dive into those benefits, here’s how you can easily extend the reach of your podcast by distributing to Podchaser.

Unique Podchaser Benefits
As we mentioned above, you can distribute your podcast to Podchaser (in the same place you distribute your podcast to Apple, Spotify, etc.), but you have the opportunity to take it a step further by adding Creator profiles and claiming your podcast on Podchaser, unlocking a slew of resources that will help you build your brand and reach new listeners.
Get Discovered and Get Feedback: Once you’ve claimed your podcast on Podchaser, you’ll receive notifications of new ratings and reviews for your podcast, gathering valuable listener feedback. Accumulate ratings to see your podcast rise in the ranks of Podchaser’s trending podcasts and episodes for discoverability. This activity will also be shown to other users via the activity feed, exposing your podcast to new audiences.
Grow Your Personal Brand: As the mastermind behind your podcast, creating a profile on Podchaser allows you to showcase all of your work, including any time you’ve helped produce another podcast or appeared as a guest on another podcast! Other users on Podchaser will easily be able to find and engage with you based on your interests and passions.
Find Guests and Partners: In the same way that creating a profile on Podchaser allows you to be found by others, it’s an incredible search tool for you to find other hosts, guests, producers, editors, voice actors, or just about any kind of collaboration you’re looking for!
Plus, you can harness the power of those guests by adding guest credits to your episodes. That way, anyone who follows your guest will receive a notification that they were on your podcast.
