  • A delightful app!

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    I can honestly say Podyssey scratches an itch I’ve had for some time — an app-agnostic community where I can review my newest obsessions and my longtime favourites alike; a platform for discovering new shows and kindred spirits; and my own little nook to collect and curate my own podcast personality.

Podcast creators value Podyssey

Podyssey is where podcast creators can reach new listeners, engage with fans, and get meaningful audience feedback on their content.

  • "Podyssey helps me discover shows that I can reach out to for cross promotion and find podcast listeners who will love our content — two essential elements of growing an independent podcast."

    Jenna Spinelle of Democracy Works from Penn State McCourtney Institute for Democracy

  • "Participants were all super thoughtful and knowledgeable about AI and had clearly listened to the episodes. This was way more meaningful engagement than Twitter or Instagram. It was both validating and gave an indication of storylines and themes that are especially resonant."

    Oz Woloshyn of Sleepwalkers from iHeartRadio

  • "It was great to see that our episode was showing another aspect to the conversation and getting people to think about that. That was quite fulfilling. We definitely think Podyssey is a great app."

    Maisha Bahdon of That's What They Said

  • "It was really nice to have such an engaged audience asking specific questions about the story. Usually we just get generic feedback like 'Nice job! Love what you’re doing!' but it’s fun to be quizzed further, also helped me identify a few gaps that we could’ve addressed in the episode."
