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.
Every podcast needs:
Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Podcasts are podcast players but they're not hosting platforms. When you click "download" or "subscribe" in these apps, the request gets sent to whichever host your favorite podcast is using (like Transistor.fm!). The podcast player will then download the MP3 file from that server.
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.
