How to listen to podcasts guide from Radio Public
A few podcast hosts
Soundcloud: Gives 3 hours free if you want to start by not paying for hosting right away has $7 plan and $15
Pippa - $15 a month has free podcast transcripts. They arent perfect and you have to put time into cleaning up the transcripts but a great resource for your podcast content on your podcast website. Responds to questions on social media
Simplecast fm - $12 easy to edit the webpage that comes with the hosting, responds to questions on social media
Libsyn - The biggest host for smaller podcasts imo. Easy to get responses online if you have issues. They have a podcast that also is about helping podcasters. Posts directly to youtube without it costing more with your podcast logo as the background.
