Acast is the home of podcasting. Whether you’re a podcaster or an advertiser, we have everything you need — just like any good home.

Podcasters: We have all the slick tools and features you need to build your podcast brand and listenership — and make money, too. Yep, we’ll help you turn your craft into cash. In fact, to date, we’ve paid out more than $150 million to podcasters just like you. We do it through advertising — which you can control — as well as paid-for membership options for your listeners.

We believe podcasters should be creative guardians of the content they produce, so we don’t interfere on what you should make. What we do really care about, though, is what’s known as “open podcasting”. If you want to connect with as many listeners as possible, then you need your show to be where they are — whether that’s on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Amazon Music or, well, anywhere. We’re fully committed to that open ecosystem and, with Acast, you can get your show on — and make money across — every podcast listening app out there, at just the click of a button. 

Advertisers: Our curated, brand-safe, global podcast marketplace helps get your messages in front of immersed, engaged listeners the world over. Target niche audiences or find global scale through ads, host-read endorsements, and branded content (from short segments to full-blown series) — all dynamically matched to the podcasts that best fit your brand at the moment a listener hits ‘play’. That means your advertising never goes out of date, and always sounds new and relevant to listeners.

Getting paid to podcast, with Football Ramble.

Using spoken word to create entire universes, with the Rusty Quill Network.

Fiction podcasts are exploding in popularity among a wide range of audiences, thanks to audio’s capacity for rich storytelling. We’re joined by audio-drama royalty Rusty Quill — the minds behind the hugely popular Magnus Archives podcast – to learn how the power of spoken word and clever sound design can create a truly cinematic listening experience. We’ll also have a few tips and tricks for budding podcasters who want to create audio fiction.

What advertisers really want to hear.

Ads and host-read endorsements are the backbone of any podcaster's revenue stream, but how do you keep a brand happy without sacrificing your listener experience? Acast Creative, our dedicated in-house creative team, reveals the recipe for the perfect sponsorship read — and how to make sure advertisers (and listeners) keep coming back for more.
