We’re building podcast hosting! Our software will have the same ethos as our stories—based in a belief that hard work, dedication to craft, and good taste are at the root of making stuff of value.

If everything works the way we hope, this will setup a virtuous circle between the publication and the software. Hosting with us will be a way to support great writing about podcasts, and great writing about podcasts will be the thing that binds together a new community of show makers.

My cofounder Chris Hickman has been working with his team to build the software since March, and our beta probably won’t be ready until January or February. We’re being careful to make software you can count on that is a joy to use.

And if you bring your carefully crafted shows to our platform, and your friends bring theirs, soon we’ll have a community of creators and their must-listen shows that will open the door to the next step in what we’re building.

Fine print: when the beta is available, there will be a 14 day free trial, and the first 100 customers will receive discounted, beta-only, $10/month podcast hosting for a year without limits on episode size, download numbers, or number of shows.
