The backend interface makes this one of the easiest to use podcasting platforms out there. They also facilitate a lot of the ways to post so they make it easy to push your podcast to iTunes (No easy feat without help) and they also connect you to Spotify which is another difficult to navigate interface. The download metrics are easy to make comparisons across platforms and episodes as well as geographic data.
What do you dislike?
There are some hidden features on the back end that should not be hidden- for instance there is a limitor on episodes that is auto enabled and that means if you post over that number of podcasts then the earlier episodes will be removed. This is NOT an easy setting to find so I had to reach out to support (who was helpful and very fast to respond!) but it seemed odd that it was so difficult to find.
Recommendations to others considering the product
I would highly recommend this service, they are one of the top podcasting sites out there and the features are on par with every other hosting site that we looked into. It is certainly comparable to Libsyn.
