The Podyssey Podcast app is a community of podcast listeners that help you find the very best podcasts & episodes. Edison Research shows that 42% of podcast listeners are subscribed to three or fewer podcasts. Our mission at Podyssey is to connect the quality podcast content available to people looking to discover more podcasts that interest them.
We have taken a different approach compared to anything currently out there. Rather than building another podcast player, we focus solely on helping users discover quality podcasts. We built Podyssey to be the place where people shared their favourite podcasts and episodes irrespective of which podcast player they use for listening.
The first thing you do when you download Podyssey is import your subscriptions from your podcast player. This builds your profile and our users have told us they love this feature. To understand why, let’s contrast the experience of opening your podcast player, which allows you see the podcasts you have subscribed to and love with having the ability to also open up Podyssey, where you finally get to see which podcasts and episodes your friends are listening to and loving. Another one of the main things to do in the app is to echo out an episode. If a user discovers an episode they are excited to recommended, they can “echo” it out to their friends and the community at large. All their friends see it on their community feed as an episode a friend is recommending and it also shows up on a screen which displays the most echoed out episodes of the month. Lastly, podcast creators, who have been some of our earliest users, are using Podyssey as a platform to connect with their fans and see what they are saying about particular episodes.
Podyssey used to be Echo Podcasts but we have recently gone through a rebrand, and other people have referred to us as Podessey, Podyessey, Podessy, Podyssy, and even Podicy. Podyssey is for you if you want a better sense of which podcasts your friends are listening to, what recommendations they have, or a convenient place to discuss them. Come join us!
