Simplecast San Mateo, California United States


Description

Every year, millions of new listeners are being exposed to podcasting, with hundreds of thousands of new creators meeting this increased listener demand with new content. Individual audio content creators are looking for better tools to immerse their audience in a story.

Since 2013, Simplecast has helped creators publish their podcasts the easy way with hosting, distribution, analytics & sharing tools. Thousands of individual creators and companies have trusted Simplecast with their audio, including Politico, Shopify, TechCrunch, Harvard, Medium, Fast Company, and many other names you know and love.

Over the last two years, we’ve been hard at work to usher podcasting into the future, by building the platform we’ve always dreamed of — with more listener insights than ever before, and as easy to publish, share and scale as any other medium.

In June, 2020, Simplecast joined the SiriusXM–Pandora family, where we’ll be able to help podcasters and their shows go even further. Along with AdsWizz and Pandora, Simplecast is breaking ground on unique distribution opportunities and exciting new revenue-generating tools.

We're growing our product development team to shape the future of podcasting by empowering audio creators with the resources they need to connect their shows with a world of listeners.
