Our policies aren't changing

Podchaser will continue to operate as an independent brand in compliance with our existing data and privacy policies. This means all of our partners will have the exact same access to our database. In short, nothing will change and we're committed to that, and to making the open ecosystem great for all.

Our values aren't changing

Operational independence means we'll be rocking the same values and same mission to grow the open podcasting ecosystem.

  • Keep podcasting open + accessible

  • Platform-agnostic = partnering with everyone

  • Giving podcasters tools to connect with audiences

  • Celebrating & empowering indie creators

Podchaser is staying independent and only getting better

You can read about Acast's commitment to keeping Podchaser independent in our announcement article. Here's a brief excerpt.

Throughout our journey, Podchaser has stayed true to its values of supporting podcasting’s open ecosystem by remaining platform-agnostic, partnering with everybody, and giving podcasters the tools they need to connect with new audiences, regardless of whether they’re independent or part of a larger network.

We are excited to maintain this spirit of independence going forward. Acast has committed not only to leaving Podchaser as is, but encouraging us to continue on our own path. Nothing is changing (not even our logo). It’s the same ol’ Podchaser you’ve come to love.

What you will see is an acceleration of Podchaser’s vision. This new chapter is supercharging our efforts to build discovery tools that help listeners, creators, and brands/advertisers get the most out of podcasting. While Podchaser will remain operationally independent, we will utilize the data and expertise of Acast to push the envelope even further. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on.
