Podcast hosting and analytics platform
With their origin deeply rooted in WordPress and the open source community, Castos and their Seriously Simple Podcasting plugin are industry standard tools for WordPress site owners wanting to podcast directly from their WordPress site.
In an age where some podcasting platforms are opting for a “walled garden” approach, Castos and their Seriously Simple Podcasting plugin continue to be champions of open podcasting standards, and encourage every podcaster to “own their turf” where their podcast lives.
Castos helps podcasters grow their audience primarily through automated tools to repurpose and redistribute podcast content on new channels. This includes YouTube, social media, and through automated transcription. Castos offers podcasters the option to monetize their content through podcast subscriptions. To do this they have deep integrations with payment providers such as Stripe, and creator tools such as MemberSpace, ConvertKit, LifterLMS, Paid Memberships Pro, and others both in and outside of the WordPress world.
Castos is also leading the industry in Private Podcasting, both for companies wanting to offer this as an internal communications medium for employees, but also powering the Creator Economy through audio.
