Acast has announced a new partnership with podcast and creator database Podchaser. All 31,000 Acast-hosted podcasts will now automatically sync with Podchaser. Instead of gathering cover art, show descriptions and hosting details for these podcasts from submitted RSS feeds, Podchaser will now get this information directly from Acast, thereby ensuring all the shows are accurately represented.
Podchaser has been called “the IMDB of podcasts” and offers rating and reviews, creator and guest credits and user-curated playlists.
This new partnership boosts discoverability for Acast podcasters, helping them grow their audiences and find new listeners. Podcasters can now receive feedback on their shows directly from listeners and engage with them through Podchaser’s community tools.
Stacey Goers, product manager at Acast, said: “We’re always looking for new ways to help our podcasters grow their audience, and having Acast podcasts properly represented within Podchaser means even more visibility and exposure for those creators. Podchaser also allows creators to engage with fans outside of podcast listening apps, further supporting the open ecosystem while helping podcasters build deeper connections.”
Bradley Davis, CEO at Podchaser, said: “At Podchaser, we believe in giving podcasters the tools they need to grow their show and connect with listeners. Through this partnership, Acast-hosted podcasts can easily receive and reply to reviews, add credits, add custom categories, create lists, and more, to boost their organic discoverability.”
