Competitive Study on Podcasting Systems


To gain a robust competitive landscape on podcasting systems.

Early Findings

  • In order to find 8 more podcasting platforms, we looked for various lists of the best and top podcasting systems in the US.
  • This lead us to add Podbean, Buzzsprout, Blubrry, Transistor, Captivate, Castos, Podomatic and Fireside to the spreadsheet.
  • Podbean is a one-stop-shop to create, host, distribute and monetize a podcast.
  • Buzzsprout users can host, promote and track their podcasts. It helps combine podcast stats in one easy-to-use interface.
  • Blubrry offers a PowerPress plugin, as well as hosting and data solutions.
  • Transistor is a professional podcast hosting and analytics platform.
  • Captivate positions itself as the "world's only growth-oriented podcast host". It is meant to be an all-in-one solution for podcast hosts to be able to use from day one.
  • Castos offers a WordPress plugin, hosting, analytics, YouTube republishing and easier ways to monetize podcasts.
  • Podomatic offers easy hosting and publishing solutions, as well as marketing tools.
