Captivate, the podcast hosting service, now allows its creators to credit themselves, and their crew, using industry-specific roles as defined by the Podcast Taxonomy Initiative.
Captivate’s adoption is a massive step forward for Podcast Taxonomy, the multidisciplinary and collaborative standard for recognizing roles and credits in podcast production! Many people working within the podcasting community often go unrecognized for their skilled work. Captivate is moving to curb this trend by allowing podcasters to credit themselves and others for their contributions to podcasts and episodes.
Podcast Taxonomy is a collaborative initiative focused on standardizing roles and production credits within the podcasting industry. Their goal is to improve job search and discovery, providing networks and independent creators with a standard list of clearly defined positions. Additionally, all Podcast Taxonomy roles are inclusive, representing people of all backgrounds, gender identities, people of color, and marginalized voices.
