Get started

  • 1. Sign up for Podyssey

    Download the iOS or Android app to sign up for a Podyssey account.

    We encourage you to sign up as yourself, not your podcast, so that you can be more personable and approacheable to listeners. You can indicate on your bio that you are the host of your podcast.

  • 2. Verify your podcast

    Submit this form to verify your account, tell us more about your podcast, and how we can help you succeed. We are currently building out creator-specific tools such as verification badges and will contact you when they're available.

  • 3. Add the Podyssey badge to your website

    Tell your listeners they can listen and recommend your podcast and episodes on Podyssey by displaying our badge on your website, social media, and apps. To download SVG and PNG versions of the badges, click here (.zip). Search for the link to your podcast and episodes on Podyssey.

  • 4. Recommend your episodes on Podyssey

    Let the Podyssey community know you've joined by recommending your favourite episodes on Podyssey with interesting information that's not already on your show notes. You are welcome to recommend episodes of your own show, but constant self-promoting is frowned about in our community. So mix it up, because your listeners also want to know what else you're listening too!

  • 5. Curate podcast playlists to promote your podcast

    Curate podcast playlists to highlight your top episodes to help new listeners dive into the best of your podcast. Remix episodes from same or different podcasts into themes to surface great content. Post your playlists on your website and social channels.

    Here are some examples of great podcast playlists:

  • 6. Invite your listeners to engage

    Create a loyal listener community. Encourage your listeners to recommend your episodes. Host an AMA (Ask Me Anything), Q&A or listener discussion on Podyssey.

"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."
