Overall Satisfaction with Podbean

We use Podbean to host and publish multiple podcasts. Podbean is a great solution for our podcast hosting because it takes all of the guesswork out of the whole process of uploading and sharing our podcasts. It has tools to quickly submit podcasts to many services like iTunes and Google Play. It also has a player that can be embedded directly into web pages. It also has helpful analytics so I can see how many people are listening to each podcast episode.


  • Easy upload and management of podcast episodes.
  • Easy process of submitting shows to podcast apps and services.
  • Player to embed into web pages.
  • Useful analytics information.
  • Easy to host multiple shows.


  • Better analytics data. I would like to know what players people are using most.
  • More obvious limitations of number of podcasts allowed in each pricing tier. Saying Business has unlimited number of podcasts is misleading if that is for unlimited private podcasts and only 2 public.
  • Ease of uploading new podcast episodes.
  • Useful analytics information.
  • Ease of submitting podcasts to apps and services.
  • New apps and services being added.
  • No need to worry about technical issues of hosting.
  • I have saved time not having to manage a podcast server.
  • I have been able to show the rest of the organization how popular our podcasts are via analytics.
  • It is good to put our podcasts out to as many apps and services as possible as easily as possible.
For a personal podcast, I host on WordPress with a plugin called Seriously Simple Podcasting. This solution is a bare bones solution, good if you know how to manage a WordPress website and are able to submit your podcasts manually to different apps and services. If you can afford Podbean I would suggest using it because the WordPress route takes a lot more time and technical knowledge. Podbean takes so much of the hassle and work away from the process.

Podbean is the best podcast hosting service I have seen so far outside of hosting your own podcast server. It has many tools built in that make hosting and sharing your podcast simple. If you are technically minded, there is good software based on WordPress to create a cheap solution for hosting multiple podcasts, but you don't get as many features and you have to do all the work yourself. If you want a solution to quickly and easily get a podcast off the ground and out into the world without having to worry about lots of technical issues, then Podbean is a good way to go.
