WhatPods is a global community platform for avid podcast listeners and a professional network for podcast hosts. For listeners, WhatPods offers an intelligent episode discovery feature via its homepage, a user-generated daily countdown of the 10 most endorsed podcast episodes for the day, which reset every 24 hours. These rankings are informed by our community members, who 'endorse' the episodes they love via the show pages on our network. Listeners can also follow and engage with their favorite hosts, connect with other listeners, and easily share episodes from any of the 500,000+ podcasts accessible via our database. For hosts, WhatPods offers a professional network, a virtual space for hosts to build mutually beneficial working relationships, to pool resources, experience, and promotional power, and to work together to survive and thrive as the new frontiers of podcasting continue to expand. WhatPods currently serves a community of hosts and listeners from all over the world.
