What is the Podchaser Feed?

The Feed is a revolutionary social timeline just for podcasts. Accessible from the Podchaser homepage, the Feed posts updates from podcasting including new episodes, ratings and reviews, creator/guest credits, list updates, and more. We’ve created the ultimate discovery tool and we’re excited to share it with you!

Popular vs. My Feed

The feed comes with two tabs that you can cycle between: Popular and My Feed. The Popular tab showcases highlights from across podcasting and Podchaser, allowing you to discover new shows, creators, and reviews. My Feed only shows posts from creators, podcasts, lists, and listeners that you follow on Podchaser, and you can use it to craft your own personal discovery tool.

You can customize or curate your feed by following your favorite podcasts, creators, celebs, lists, and listeners. We breakdown each one below.
