More than a podcast.
Share more than just an episode, and make your podcast about more than just listening. Each episode can become a bigger, richer experience by adding supporting multimedia material around it—writing, images, or bonus audio and video content.
A direct relationship with listeners.
On Substack, you’re not podcasting into a void. Email subscriptions create direct relationships with listeners. Comments and community threads connect subscribers.
Monetize through devotion.
On Substack you can share free episodes broadly via email, web, in the Substack app, or via RSS feed to all major podcast players — and add extra convert to a paying subscription all in one place.
