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

        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.
