Popular vs My Feed

Popular and My Feed tabs for Podchaser Feed

Upon first opening the Feed, users will find two different tabs: “Popular” and “My Feed.” The Popular tab displays what’s trending across all of podcasting, while the My Feed tab provides a personalized discovery timeline based off of what podcasts, creators, lists, and other listeners the user follows on Podchaser. The more you follow, the more personalized your Feed gets!

Is This Your Card?

Inside each tab of the Feed you’ll see a scrolling timeline made up of individual cards, each with their own purpose. Here’s a rundown of some of the cards you’ll see.

A Whole New Ballgame

🎧 Listeners

Let’s face it, podcast discovery has always been a chore. An endless treadmill of digging through social media, newsletters, fruitless Google searches, and hounding your friends for recommendations. As fellow podcast listeners, we found this exhausting and that’s why we created the Feed.

The Feed does the work for you. It connects you to the pulse of podcast information with real-time updates that come to you. The best part is you can customize it to create a truly personal experience. Want to know what your best friend is listening to? Follow them on Podchaser for updates when they follow new shows, leave a new review, or create a list. Big fan of Jad Abumrad of Radiolab? Follow him on Podchaser and you’ll see when he’s a guest on other podcasts or when he’s working on a new project.

🎙️ Podcasters

Up until now, listener engagement across podcasting has been stuck in a black hole. If a listener left a review or followed their favorite show, nobody would know unless they were actively seeking it out. Similarly, bringing a guest onto the show meant having to hope and pray they would throw out a tweet to push their fans to your show (and often they didn’t).

The Feed solves all of that. In the short time since launching the beta version of the Feed, we’ve seen a HUGE increase in the number of listens, ratings & reviews, show & creator follows, playlist inclusion, and more.

Every time a user follows a podcast or creator, leaves a rating or review, creates a new List, or likes another user’s review, it shows up in the Feed in real-time. And when a new episode is released, it shows up on the Feed. If a user follows a creator who guests on your show, that shows up too! All of this leads to more exposure and interaction with your podcast, which also boosts your SEO presence for greater organic traffic.

⭐️ The takeaway: The Feed drives to more and more engagement to your podcast and increases exposure to tons of potential listeners!

Here’s an article for how to best utilize the Feed to grow your audience.
