Industrial-Grade Podcast Hosting.
Podcasters, from those just starting out to those with millions of listeners are choosing BTR as their platform of choice, find out why
You've got your microphone, and your podcasting studio set-up to record, and have polished up your basic audio editing skills to get started podcasting. Now you need a podcast media host that is cost effective, easy to use, and that can get your content everywhere - into iTunes and other podcast apps via RSS feeds, sharable across the web via attractive streaming players that enable listeners to play your content where they are, while increasing your chances of building up a good following. Aside from these basics, you need your podcast platform to be robust, able to deliver accurate industrial grade metrics you can make sound editorial decisions against, able to maximize the earning potential of your show as you grow (and not only when you hit superstar status). This platform also needs to be robust, performant, provide you with the support that you need, and treat you fairly. The new BlogTalkRadio is just that platform.
"The team has consistently worked with me to maximize revenue opportunities, and to pair my show with sponsors that are a great fit for me and my audience. They’re a wonderful partner in this endeavor, and I’m very grateful for everything they do."Seth Andrews, Host of the Thinking Atheist

The New BlogTalkRadio | Our Journey Thus Far
Since January of 2014, BlogTalkRadio has been undergoing a quiet revolution. Our team, from bottom to the top has been completely restructured. We've only brought in people who are aligned with our new mission to help podcasters thrive and profit fairly from their work. While many creators still come to us for our interview studio, many professionals who produce content outside of our tools and upload full episodes have come to rely on our robust platform as a base for their podcasting enterprise and as a means to maintain their independence.
Their reasons are clear, through the years, the fundamental podcast media hosting and syndication components of our platform (we call these the 'basics') have gone through the painful process of scaling, and over the last three years, we've significantly improved the platform where it matters - better sound quality on delivered files, more robust RSS service, robust streaming and embeddable players, a new content management system, research and proven learning materials (not folk knowledge), a completely overhauled data platform that leapfrogs existing podcast measurement systems by drawing from proven techniques drawn from mature digital media(not the nascent podcasting space) to separate human activity from bots and deliver actionable data to help inform editorial decisions, to our market leading dynamic podcast ad insertion system that was the first of its kind to launch back in 2014 that has to date served over 250 million dynamically inserted ad impressions, and that has gone through the hard knocks of stabilization and scaling.
We are only just getting started, and would be privileged to serve you in your podcasting journey.
