Recommend podcasts with Podroll

Podroll is a simple way to recommend podcasts you love to your listeners.

It's reminiscent of blogrolls from the early 00's where bloggers would recommend their favorite blogs, websites, and discussion groups.

These recommendations are powerful because they're curated by the podcast creator, not an algorithm.

Buzzsprout podcasters can add podcast recommendations to their Podroll by going to Podcast Info > Podroll. These recommendations will appear on your Buzzsprout website, on Podnews, and in Podcasting 2.0-enabled listening apps.

Dynamic Mid-Rolls

You can now use Dynamic Content to add mid-rolls to your back catalog. Dynamic Content uses our Smart Insertion Point technology to automatically identify good places to add mid-rolls to your episodes. This saves you hours of relistening to your episodes to find pauses in the conversation.

All mid-roll content includes a transition to help your listers identify that this is a different type of content.
