The /r/podcasting on Reddit is notoriously skeptical of self-promotion, but after years of contributing to the community (and trying to be helpful in threads) they've invited @mijustin to do an AMA today!
It shows that there's no substitution for showing up every day. ✌️
Big day for Jon Buda, myself, and our Transistor journey:
We've hired our first full-time engineer, Jason Pearl! 🎉
We believe that a small team can produce incredible software (in our case, podcast hosting & analytics), and provide the best customer experience in our industry.
Now you can upload text transcripts and add them to individual podcast episodes. Transistor will update your RSS feed with links to transcripts, as well as display the transcript on your podcast's website.
Steps for adding a podcast transcript in Transistor:
Our Zapier integration is now available:
You can use Zapier + Transistor to create automations like this:
"Trigger a Slack message when a new episode of my podcast is published."
"Trigger a Tweet (with the Share URL) when a new episode of my podcast is published."
"Automatically remove a private subscriber when they cancel their membership."
We just hit a big milestone. There are now over 9,000 individual podcasts (shows) on Transistor. We're serving millions of downloads each month.
Jon and I keep working to make Transistor better. We're excited to hit 10,000 podcasts on the platform.

If you're the type of person who likes doing everything in the terminal, you're going to love this.
Podcast-CLI allows you to listen to your favorite shows, right in the terminal. You can search for shows, browse episodes, download, and listen.
Some days (working on a SaaS) you can feel discouraged.
Getting notes like this in our customer support software make us feel ❤️.
"Outstanding support (especially for someone like me new to podcasting). Very patient and knowledgeable team; they answered every question. This was a really smart decision to subscribe with Transistor.fm."
We're happy to announce a much-requested feature! Now, when you're editing a podcast episode you can:

We've already received some great feedback on it:
"The updated Transistor admin panel is one of the nicest hosting interfaces I've ever used (and I've been through many)." – Ollie Judge
It's not every day that you see a podcast hosted on Transistor in GQ Magazine:
From the article:
Today, he’s releasing those conversations as a new podcast, Business Dad.
“I wanted to talk to as broad a range of business dads, all at the top of their game but doing a variety of things,” he says of the pod. “Guys I knew professionally, we had a whole other thing to talk about that I didn't know we thought about. It unlocked this entirely different thread of conversation whenever we'd get together.”
Nice work Alexis Ohanian! 😎
