  • Vizzy, a web-based podcast enrichment platform, is looking for early adopters to use its tool. Images, chapters and links can be added to podcasts, and are viewable using Apple Podcasts, Overcast, Podcast Addict and others.

Top Stories:

  • Acast released its financial report for Q3/22
  • Amazon Music Prime users, and Amazon Music Unlimited, now has thousands of ad-free podcasts from Acast
  • The Podnews Daily podcast is on Amazon Music. Here’s how to add yours.

  • The Fediverse is so much bigger than Mastodon says Castopod. (Castopod has been connected to Mastodon since April 2021) …Dave Jones has also pointed out that this is where cross-app comments live, so it’s a good opportunity for podcasting.

  • If you’re one of the many people making the leap to Mastodon, you might be interested in MastoFeed, a tool to share new episodes of your podcast.
