Podible Gives Stories a Voice



Podible is a podcast tech company that is using machine learning to solve both discovery and monetization for podcast authors and listeners. The point is to make it easy for you to discover your next favorite podcast.

You can start listening to podcasts on Podible for free on their website. It gives you the ability to personalize it. Start by selecting your favorite topics from a list of 20.

This brings up a selection of podcasts that podible things you will like, based on the topics you picked. If your favorite podcast is missing, you can add it to your list by typing the name of the podcast into the Podible search engine.

For people who regularly listen to podcasts, it will not be news to you that the podcasting industry has a Discovery problem. Since podcasting first came to the mainstream consumer’s attention, there has been an ever present issue of how to find new podcasts that are in line with a person’s listening history and general interests.

Podible offers the following:

  • Personalized Listening: Their proprietary algorithm will discover new podcasts you’ll love based on your interests.
  • Social Sharing: Easily share your favorite podcast series or episodes with friends with one simple click.
  • Any Device: Users can listen to a podcast across all their devices without any interruptions.
  • Endless Episodes: Stream millions of unique podcast episodes for free with no interruptions.

Podible sounds really good for people who like to listen to podcasts and who don’t want to spend a lot of time searching for new ones to listen to.  It also might be helpful for podcasters who want to get their podcast into the ears of new listeners.  I haven’t been able to figure out how Podible helps solve the problem of monetization for podcasters, and did not see information about that on their website.

  1. Thanks for the great write-up Jen!

    To help authors monetize, we first will help them get listeners. We recommend users any podcast that they’ll find interesting, regardless if it is popular or not (working now to build out the number of shows that we have).

    We are also building a programmatic ad exchange to insert ads into the episodes so that authors who partner with us can monetize, regardless of their user numbers.

    Happy listening,
