We’re thrilled to roll out new features that let listeners curate and contribute to Spotify exclusive podcasts on Podchaser!
If you’ve paid attention to podcasting news, you’ve probably noticed that Spotify has started producing their own podcasts and acquiring existing shows. Many of these shows (such as The Joe Rogan Experience) used to be found on all major podcast listening services before becoming exclusive to Spotify, while others (such as Gimlet Academy) have only ever been available on Spotify.
Podchaser empowers listeners to rate, curate, and contribute data to podcasting, and now we offer those features for Spotify Exclusives! We want every series and every creator to be discoverable, no matter the listening service. Are you eager to add your thoughts to these shows?

Next to the “Play” button, you will see the Spotify logo. By selecting this, you will be prompted with a link to open in Spotify.” You’ll also see a helpful message next to the player when you listen to a preview clip.
Take for example “Infamous: The Tekashi 6ix9ine Story.” You can see it is an exclusive podcast by both its description and the Podchaser menu. If you select the Spotify logo, the “Exclusive Podcast” message will appear and you can select “Open in Spotify.”
Setting aside the features above, you will still be able to fully interact with these episodes similar to any other podcast on Podchaser. You can still:
