September 20, 2021 Doing an AMA on Reddit today

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. ✌️

August 3, 2021 Hired our first full-time engineer!

Big day for Jon Buda, myself, and our Transistor journey:

We've hired our first full-time engineer, Jason Pearl! 🎉

https://transistor.fm/jason/

This brings the Transistor team to a total of 4 full-time people: @mijustin, @jonbuda, @helenryles, and Jason.

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.

July 21, 2021 New feature: podcast transcripts

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:

  1. Create an episode in Transistor.
  2. Save the episode (either as a draft, or published) before you add a transcript.
  3. Paste in your transcript, or upload a .txt, .srt, or .vtt file
  4. Once published, your transcript will be linked in your RSS feed.
  5. It will also be published (automatically) on the landing page for your episode.

"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."

July 28, 2020 Over 9,000 podcasts hosted on Transistor.fm!

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 have a podcast hosted somewhere else (or you're thinking about starting your own show) we'd love to have you:

July 21, 2020 Fun and geeky: listen to podcasts in the terminal

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.

July 15, 2020 We love getting reviews like this!

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."

July 7, 2020 Draft, Publish Now, or Schedule podcast episodes!

We're happy to announce a much-requested feature! Now, when you're editing a podcast episode you can:

  • Save it as a draft
  • Publish it immediately
  • Schedule it in the future
  • Schedule it (retroactively) in the past
  • Revert a published or scheduled episode to Draft (unpublish it)

May 13, 2020 We shipped a new podcast UI!

We just launched a new app design for Transistor! 🥳

Under the hood, we're using Tailwind CSS (by @adamwathan) and Alpine.js to create a UI that's both mobile-friendly and blazing fast. We've reduced the size of our Javascript by 43%, and our CSS by 82.5%.

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

April 15, 2020 GQ Magazine

It's not every day that you see a podcast hosted on Transistor in GQ Magazine:
https://www.gq.com/story/alexis-ohanian-business-dad

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! 😎
