"Simple & Effective Podcast Solution"
What do you like best about Podbean?
I find the user interface, reporting, and customer support to be exceptional. The price point is also extremely competitive in the space. I've been using Podbean for over 6 months and have been completely satisfied.
What do you dislike about Podbean?
I've recently lost some FB integration with automatically posting the podcast link; however, I'm not entirely sure who is at fault. I also don't like that video podcasts and audio only can't be created under the same account -- you need 2 accounts.
What problems is Podbean solving and how is that benefiting you?
PodBean houses the RSS and Video feed for our parent company's weekly podcast feed.

"Best podcast publishing online software for the price"
What do you like best about Podbean?
I love how easy it is to use podbean; it's user-friendly and beginner-friendly. I recommend it for everyone, the best software for the price.
What do you dislike about Podbean?
I don't dislike anything about podbean; the only thing they could improve on is their pricing plans; the pricing itself is really great, but I would like to have the full customization for the beginner plan too.
What problems is Podbean solving and how is that benefiting you?
I've solved the problem of not having to worry about where I'm going to publish my podcast. It's straightforward to use; you can post your podcast to all other significant apps and services from the same podbean admin panel.

"Podbean - Easy to set up a podcast"
What do you like best about Podbean?
I like that I can easily add new episodes to my podcast. The setup is intuitive and straightforward, so that is appreciated. Podbean is also cost-friendly for small businesses or solopreneurs.
What do you dislike about Podbean?
I can't think of a dislike. Podbean offers an RSS feed that I have not used, so I can't speak to that, but once I get more episodes posted, then I will look into broadcasting on other sites my podcast.
What problems is Podbean solving and how is that benefiting you?
I use Podbean to offer my website content in podcast form. It helps me connect with people that are interested in audio content as opposed to reading our website content.

"A brilliantly simple podcasting app!"
What do you like best about Podbean?
I began podcasting almost two years ago. When I started, I used another hosting site which left me craving more. PodBean is unbelievably easy to fire up. Whether you're a podcast newbie or a seasoned veteran, you'll be publishing episodes in no time, with many customizable options. Every step of the way is explained, and you can crank out up to 10 hours with their free plan (upgrades are available in 3 other tiers). There are opportunities to monetize your podcast for serious creators, and the app has special features that I've never seen on other podcatchers.
What do you dislike about Podbean?
It is very hard to find a detailed explanation for refunds and cancellations on their annual premium plan. I would like to consider this upgrade, but not before I can appropriately research it.
What problems is Podbean solving and how is that benefiting you?
I wanted a simpler podcasting experience. No nonsense, no fuss. If I do wish to upgrade, it's only going to cost me $9 a month, and I will receive the upgrades I need and want. I'm appreciative that they don't charge you an arm and a leg to move to the first premium tier.

"Easy to navigate"
What do you like best about Podbean?
For the technologically hopeless PodBean is easy to use and navigate. Staying current on trends and products is important in higher education. Podbean allows schools to share what they are doing easily and cheaply. More importantly for small colleges, it is a resource that we can use that wont hurt our budget. What I love is despite the lack of cost, there was enough energy put into this app that makes it easy to navigate. My colleges who care barely download an app have learned how to use PodBean without any trouble.
What do you dislike about Podbean?
The auto download and delete is not always functioning correctly and can fill up my memory quite fast if I am not paying attention.
What problems is Podbean solving and how is that benefiting you?
Since larger colleges are using PodBean to share and discuss trends and resources.

"Podbean is a great service for podcasters that need to distribute their show"
What do you like best about Podbean?
I loved that podbean allowed me to distribute my show to a wide variety of platforms from one easy place. It also provided really useful analytics on our show listeners from each platform and showed us the country, time, and other variables of who was listening.
What do you dislike about Podbean?
It was a little bit pricey and we could have paid a lot more if we wanted even more features, but overall it was a useful service that did the job it was intended for.
What problems is Podbean solving and how is that benefiting you?
I used podbean to distribute my podcast to several platforms at once, track the analytics of my show to determine who listens where and when, and store the recordings for each of my episodes in one convenient place. It also allowed me to type one description for each show and distributed that to each platform which saved a lot of time.

"PodBean is Great For First Time Podcasters"
What do you like best about Podbean?
For first-time podcasters getting started, PodBean is well laid out, easy to use, and has some great tools to get started with your show.
What do you dislike about Podbean?
It's a little basic and lacks in some of the advanced analytics that some other hosting sites have.
What problems is Podbean solving and how is that benefiting you?
It's easy to use and host your podcast on. It has a low monthly cost for hosting which makes it great for new podcasters.

"Podbean is Fast and Easy, Great for the Beginning Podcaster"
What do you like best about Podbean?
I upload several long podcasts every week. Before Podbean, I chose managed my own site. In doing that I had complete freedom in presenting my materials, but it took a lot of my time. I went looking first for a host that offered -unlimited space-, a modest price, great ease and timeliness of uploading, a simple interface, the ability to share to social media sites and a large and ready group of downloaders. Podbean has all of those features plus automatic uploads to the podcast giants like Itunes and Google Podcasts. Podbean has all of these features. I have been on Podbean for nearly a year now and have gained new followers - more than I expected - and my podcast has the potential of being heard all over the world, and very easily at that. OK - Podbean is EASY use and podcasts are Easy for a listener to find. And EASY for a newbie to get started fast and maintain with limited effort. I like all these features.
What do you dislike about Podbean?
I do not like the way my podcasts appear. There are a few templates - and though my podcast falls into a major category (82% religion and spirituality), there are no templates that have anything to do with this vastly popular topic. Filling out the template is not WYSIWYG - it can appear to the podcaster one way and to the user another quite differently, especially in the "fill-in sections (fields)" - for me the default text often gets published with a background that obscures the text and/or text and background conflict. I guess I could build my own template; that is what I have done in the past which I wish to avoid. I would also like to be able to set the order of the podcasts, grouping them by subject matter, but there is little I can do about that. Of course, the uploads display in chronological order, but a great feature would be to implement a SQL service so they can be ordered as the author deems appropriate. Finally, the monthly price is a little steep at $29.
What problems is Podbean solving and how is that benefiting you?
Because I usually do 3 - 4 50-minutes shows per week, with Podbean I'm saving loads of time in posting them. That was my biggest problem before, which is now solved. And I'm actually saving a little money by abandoning the prior company I used for this purpose - after 18 years on, that company really did my wrong, and I had to find an alternative fast. In a very short time with little preparation I was able to make the switch.
