Our Podcast Hosting Platform FireSide.FM

We get asked fairly often which podcast host to choose from, for there are many. We switched to and have never looked back.

Dan Benjamin is a professional podcaster who runs his own network. He saw the writing on the wall that many of his podcasters, once his 5by5 network gave them a huge audience, would jump ship off his network and either start their own or just go independent. So he saw an opportunity in creating a powerful and dead simple hosting platform.

This is not the place for video podcasts. It's just audio. Just MP3. And just RSS feeds.

Within these constraints, you have a simple and clear layout to get your show up and running. We use the default artwork and fonts because, honestly, I think they look great and I don't have the time or experience changing anything now.

The price is easy: $19/month. It's the only plan.

If you have more shows you want to do, new podcasts are only $8/month. It'll import from your provider in one click and help you easily get on more platforms, like iTunes (default), Google Play, Stitcher, TuneIn and more. Catching Foxes in on about 8 or so different podcast platforms.

We started as a podcast hosted by Squarespace on my website. This is great for non-serious, cheap, or just starting out podcast shows. You need a website for your show, an RSS feed to point iTunes to, and that's about it. Fireside gives you a website and the RSS, but if you already have a website, like I did with, then adding a podcast is essentially free.

But once I jumped ship to pay more money for hosting with Fireside, I haven't regretted it for a single moment.
