Always learning

Podbean is one of the saved apps in my "listening" category on my phone. I go to it frequently to listen to one of my favorite go-to educational resources. Easy, accessible, and delivers the info I'm looking for.

Pros

I was introduced to Podbean because a particular influencer I follow posted a podcast here, so of course I had to listen! I found Podbean easy to use. I like the aesthetic, layout, and organization of the recordings.

Cons

Thankfully I didn't come across any glitches or friction. I guess my only "complaint" would be that I wasn't inspired to explore Podbean outside of the one podcast I came to listen to. I'd attribute this more to user error (me!) than the platform. Having said that...now I want to go explore :)

Podbean really seems to give podcasters everything they need

Pros

Podbean is one of the few media hosts that really seems to give podcasters pretty much everything they need from start to finish. In particular, I like that Podbean lets you: – share your podcast content to different platforms – easily edit a web page that's automatically created and that accompanies each episode that you publish – different podcast monetization avenues – the ability to live stream your episodes in real-time and even have guests or a co-host call in – join its free community of podcasters to network and learn from others – host video content (perfect if you are considering using or adding video for your show) – mobile app you can use to record, publish episodes, listen to podcasts, go live, and get paid

Cons

The analytics don't seem as accurate and "complete" as on other platforms and depending on what you need, you may end up paying quite a bit for your Podbean plan

zero customer support

Pros

It is fairly easy to upload your podcast.

Cons

Zero support, on a review site it was stated that they had phone support, they do not. The tutorials they use to walk you through the distribution cluster f, are not up to date and when I asked they sent me the out to date video.

Reasons for Choosing Podbean

because alleged support.

An affordable way to begin a podcast

It was easy, streamlined, and well designed. I loved it.

Pros

The features for the price. A new podcaster with just a phone could do a decent job with this platform, and the price is beyond reasonable.

Cons

I’m not a computer novice. So I could use open source software to do most of what Podbean can do for free, but it requires more knowledge and resources to do it that way.

top quality music streaming

my favorite music updated with the click of a button. amazing

Pros

The thing i like the most about podbean is that it's very easy to use and i can find weekly updates on my favorite music and podcasts by my favorite dj's. Just by clicking the follow button the latest podcast is already there next time you use the app

Cons

I love this app and i can't fault it at all. I'd give it 5 stars
