Replacing Substack?

Hey everyone.

I'm staring to look for a new tech stack to replace Substack.

We enjoy healthy growth but Substack's features are staring to be lacking, not to mention costly too.

Has anyone made the switch successfully ?
Your recommendations and ideas are more than welcomed

      Oh wait , it;’s you !!!

      I follow your youtube open builds
      You actually helped me get into TailwindCSS Thanks.
      Now I want to try your new product even more !

      We also have a podcast usually gets into top 10 business podcasts in Mexico.

        Nice! Yes, migrating from Simplecast to Transistor is easy:


        There's a 1-click import, and then all you have to do is forward your old RSS feed to your new Transistor RSS.

          Brilliant, if you guys need some extra seed for meeps let me know.

          Most of my “real work” is on media https://digifolkmedia.com/ and I help launch and grow brands both established and new publishers.
