Podcast Websites

Some podcast listeners access episodes from platforms like Apple Podcasts and Spotify but having your own website is also important. Your site serves as a virtual home to your podcasting business. Having your own site is good for branding, makes it easier for listeners to find you, and you have complete control over the details of your site (you don’t have control over other platforms).

Here, we’ll look at examples of well-designed podcast websites so you can see what you should be working towards.

How to Create Your Own Podcast Website

When you browse through the showcase of podcast websites below, you’ll see that almost all of them were created with one of two platforms: WordPress or Squarespace. While there are several ways to create your podcast website, we believe WordPress and Squarespace are the best options. Both allow you to create a podcast feed to share your episodes.

But which website builder is right for you?

WordPress is excellent if you want unlimited potential to add features and functionality. It also helps if you have some experience managing a website and you’re comfortable with updating WordPress, your theme, and plugins (or you’re ok hiring someone to do it for you).

Squarespace is an ideal website builder if you’re looking for a site that’s beautiful but simple to manage. You’re more limited with Squarespace than you would be with WordPress, but you won’t need to worry about updates. You can also get help from Squarespace customer service whenever you need it. And you can start with a podcast website template like Paloma or Sundew.
