Simplecast is the easiest way for you to publish your audio to the world—with one-click publishing to Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music, Spotify, or wherever your audience listens.

Podcast Hosting & Distribution Made Easy

You can have your show up and running in minutes, and with our reliable, rock-solid hosting infrastructure, you can rest assured that your episodes will always be available to listeners all over the world.

Share Your Podcast With the World

Once you're ready to share your podcast with the world, you'll want to get your show into Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music, Spotify, and wherever else people listen to podcasts.

We've made it incredibly easy to get your show into the podcast directories and apps, and once you do, any new episodes you publish in your dashboard will be picked up and passed along to your listeners automatically.

Learn More About Your Audience With Advanced Analytics

Of course you'll want to know how many people are listening to your show, and Simplecast has an audio analytics platform unlike any you've seen.

You'll get all kinds of useful data about your show and episodes, including the total number of downloads and unique listeners, where those listeners are located, which apps and devices they're using to listen to your show, and so much more.

And of course your show's analytics are IAB Certified, which means your numbers meet the industry standards right out of the box.

We've made enterprise-level analytics affordable for podcasters everywhere. If you’re nerdy for numbers, you’re in the right place.

A Beautiful, Functional Website for Your Podcast

Here at Simplecast, we believe every show deserves a beautiful website. 

We know you already put a lot of work into your show, and may not want to spend a lot of time creating and maintaining a website too. No worries! We've got you covered.

Every show on Simplecast gets a site, and the site updates automatically when you publish a new episode or make a change to your show or episode details. 

Simplecast show sites are beautiful, customizable, mobile-friendly, optimized for search engines and Google Podcasts, and you can even use your own custom domain name if you’d like.

We've done the hard work for you so you can be a podcaster, not a webmaster.

Manage Multiple Shows With One Account

Working on multiple podcasts? You can easily manage all your shows from one account. 

Simplecast makes it easy to manage and grow your podcast empire, whether you have two shows, or two dozen shows.

Assemble Your Podcast Team

You don’t have to run your show alone: Invite team members to help! 

With all-new permission levels, invite team members to one show or multiple shows, while granting them access to see or edit only what you want them to. 

Beautiful, Robust, and Intelligent Embeddable Audio Players

We know a lot of podcast discovery still happens in the web browser, so we provide you with beautiful, robust, and intelligent web players for your episodes and show.

Our players are oEmbed-ready, making it effortless to use them in site-builders like Squarespace or WordPress, blogs like Medium, and across social media.

They can also report your listeners' listening speeds, share points, and drop-offs as well!
