Podcast discovery is broken
…even with the nice and tidy categories that most podcast directories offer. When I say ‘podcast discovery,’ I mean it in the most literal sense—where listeners can actually discover new shows without having to dive deep into their podcast app.
Open up your favorite podcast player on your smartphone, be it Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or Pocket Casts, Himalaya, Castbox, Overcast or Spotify. Seriously, go for it. I’ll wait a sec. Got it? Great.
Now do this as if you’re someone new to this topsy-turvy world of podcasting and pretend you want to find a show to listen to, to kick the proverbial podcasting tires. Navigate to the app’s Explore or Discovery section to select a category and begin exploring and discovering.
Oh boy. Yeah…those directories? Overwhelmingly, they feature the same old, same old podcasts produced by professional broadcasters and well-backed, well-marketed podcast studios.
That’s where YouJoint comes in.
You already know you want to listen to a podcast about muscle cars, or build journals, or off-roading, or racing, or recounts of stories about drag races in the 70’s, or…or…
We put all the podcasts about all those topics and hundreds more under the umbrella of “automotive stuff” all in one place so you can find them, listen to them, subscribe to them and talk about them.
