We make podcasting less confusing

Podcasting is an incredible medium, but it can be confusing for newcomers.

At Transistor, we guide you through the confusing podcasting landscape. All you'll need to do is record your audio, and upload it to Transistor. We'll help you submit your show to platforms like Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

We're more than hosting and analytics. We'll help answer your questions with our live chat and guides.

What is needed to start a podcast?

The Transistor story so far

Jon Buda and Justin Jackson met in Portland in 2014, at the XOXO Festival.


We were both into podcasting: Jon had built an early podcast hosting tool, and Justin had a podcast. We ended up hanging out quite a bit that week. In the following years, we met up numerous times and even built a few small projects together.

Fast forward to 2017. Jon was building a new podcast hosting platform on the side for his employer to use. We started talking about the idea of us teaming up and launching it to the public together.

We signed the partnership documents in February of 2018 and officially launched on August 1, 2018.

From the beginning, we've been podcasters!


Every week, we record a new episode for our podcast (just like thousands of our customers). We've even shared our podcast stats publicly.

Today, we serve over 20,000 podcasts of all types. Our customers include indie podcasters, small businesses, and enterprise companies: Indie Hackers, IBM, The NHL's Vegas Golden Knights, VH1, ProfitWell, Ionic, and Laravel.
