Pros: Beginner-Friendly. Easy interface. Responsive Customer Service.

Cons: The stats page is hideous - intentionally obtuse, without giving the opportunity to do deep-dives in figuring out what makes your audience tick.

Overall: For the beginning podcaster, Buzzsprout is a perfect fit. Their tutorials are great, their interface is easy to use, and their customer service is engaged and proactive. (I actually received an unsolicited e-mail from a tech who thought he had noticed a problem with my account, which is amazing.)

There are two primary drawbacks to Buzzsprout:

1) If you're posting a new episode, you cannot put in the episode details before you start uploading your sound file. If you have modern internet, this could mean that your episode is posted before you've had a chance to put in a title, description, artwork, etc.

I can't tell you how many times I've had to delete or do last-second editing, because my episode posted my listeners before I was ready for it to go to them. No one wants to listen to a podcast that's still called "File-Name".mp3, without any description or artwork.

2) The stats are awful. Buzzsprout highlights its "Listeners" statistic, which is an intentionally obtuse, proprietary statistic. What makes a listener? I don't know. Buzzsprout doesn't tell me. This makes it difficult to know what's making a difference for listener engagement and how to communicate to my sponsors about the reach of my podcast. That, combined with the fact that you can't do more advanced features, like A/B testing, etc. means that the service lags behind badly when your audience starts growing and your podcast starts generating revenue.

This is probably the reason I'll have to switch podcasting services at the end of this year; much to my regret.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you're a beginner, this is a perfect choice. If you're a power-podcaster, you'll want to look elsewhere.

Pros: User friendly and look and feel of it

Cons: We need to be able to upload video one day not just audio

Overall: We are running a church website (www.lighthouse-tabernacle.co.za) and we have embedded our Buzzsprout podcast account onto it, and we just love the look and feel of it and the latitude given to us to change the look and feel of the podcast account to mirror the actual website.

We have been uploading sermons since 2014, and we upload weekly on Wednesdays and Sundays, and I am glad to report that the only downtime we ever experienced was less then two hours. The speed at which queries are being attended to with is absolutely amazing.

We are a very small church but we are awed by the highest levels of professionalism and yet at a very reasonable price. The amount data we upload onto the podcast account is massive but yet I have never seen even one time the site crushing. Needless to mention that we had a previous service provider whose downtimes were unacceptable and response times were very poor.

Buzzsprout is professional but yet even a not so technically inclined person can use it.

Pros: I love the professional look to the Buzzsprout portal, the intuitiveness of the web-portal (easy to navigate), the ability to add images to podcasts, the website/social media links to podcasts, and the ability to edit past posts.

Cons: I cannot think of anything I do not like about the Buzzsprout services

Overall: From the first time I uploaded a podcast, I was impressed with the ease and intuitiveness of the Buzzsprout services. I am an associate pastor at a church, and one of my focus areas is our weekly worship service. Knowing the impact a digital presence can have a community and desire to bring a new facet to our local ministry, I immediately addressed the need for a weekly podcast. Not being a software engineer, nor being an expert in digital media (I know enough to be dangerous, but not a guru by any measure), I was concerned with hosting a weekly podcast. How was I going to be able to do a good job producing a weekly podcast? We needed a way to produce a quality podcast that not only sounded good, but also provided features like archiving past messages, and easy playability to our audience. Buzzsprout has provided everything we were looking for, and more! Our Buzzsprout portal looks amazing, is very easy to navigate, archives our podcasts, allows us to add graphics and images to our finished product, provides links to embed on our web page and other social media sites, takes care of the behind-the-scene technical aspects of our podcast with iTunes, and does it all at an extremely affordable monthly rate. I am so thankful I found Buzzsprout and would recommend them to anybody who wants to make a splash in the digital realm.

Recommendations to other buyers: None at this time.

Pros: Value & ease of use. Customer support has also been excellent.

Cons: Not much to dislike about BuzzSprout.

Overall: Our church has used BuzzSprout for two years+ to host our audio (sermons mostly) and for Podcast interface. We have been able to effectively reach our homebound and handicapped members as well as to spread the Word outside out local community - VERY cost effectively.

The great thing about BuzzSprout is ease of use - from uploading audio (sermons in our case) to having it automatically appear on your podcast. There is a fairly simple interface to set up once with the Apple folks and after that, it all happens like magic -- upload your audio from your PC and you're done; a few minutes later it's available to the world. We also like the STATS features. The only thing I would like to see would be a bit more granularity in terms of how long someone plays, and how to tell between a "listen" and a robot. Some of this is available - but we always want more :-) The ability to track how many are listening and approximately where the listeners are is fantastic - useful to know where the outreach is working.

BuzzSprout is so easy to use we haven't needed much support but whenever I needed it - it was prompt and effective!

Recommendations to other buyers: Great way to spread your message --- cost-effectively and quickly.

Pros: functionality, easy to use platform yet diverse features.

Cons: The statistics dont always seem the most accurate. I wish we could see more from the listener stats.

Overall: I have greatly enjoyed Buzzsprout. I found them 2 years ago when podcasting was booming and I wanted to get my homemade podcast out there. The site is simple to use with helpful features and links. It helps get your show promoted with instructions for sharing RSS feed along with providing a simple website available for people find the podcast outside of other Podcast Portals. The best thing I've enjoyed is that I produce my podcast in video format and Buzzsprout can convert that into an audio file without any demerits towards monthly allowance for download space. I have not felt the need to look elsewhere for a podcast host and highly recommend!

Pros: It's easy to upload and edit podcasts.

Cons: I wish you could set the time a podcast is published, not just the date.

Overall: When we first started the ChurchMag Podcast, we hosted our own audio on AWS (Amazon S3) and published our iTunes XML feed using a fairly easy to use desktop app. Compared to other online solutions, it seemed like the best way to maintain control over our media and update feeds. Over time, however, it became clear that it was far from a smooth, easy to use solution.

That's when we found Buzzsprout.

Buzzsprout not only gave me full control over the feed and media, but also made it super easy to integrate other important podcasting platforms like Google Play, Stitcher, as well as the traditional RSS feed and website embed. In the past, iTunes has been very difficult to use when submitting your information, updates, etc... but Buzzsprout made it super easy. Plus, whenever iTunes has an update or add a new feature, Buzzsprout supports it.

In the end, Buzzsprout lets me focus on producing the ChurchMag Podcast and takes any and all the pains out of podcast publishing. I can't imagine podcasting without them.

Recommendations to other buyers: Be sure to select the right plan. You aren't paying for more features, just more storage.

Pros: Ease of use, good customer service, frequent new features

Cons: N/A

Overall: I had been kicking the idea of a podcast around for a long time but was too nervous to ever start. One day my wife was bored at work and started researching a hosting site for me without my knowledge. She sent me some info on Buzzsprout and we began an experiment/trial run. I won't lie, Buzzsprout had wonderful resources laying out the technical details, tips on recording, great options for sharing, and suddenly I had a podcast. My content may not be the best, but that is on me. What Buzzsprout allowed me to do was be creative and not sweat the details. We started with the free plan but once we had our stuff together we realized we needed a paid plan. We went to the middle tier and haven't stopped since. Even when my debit card was hacked and my funds were frozen, Buzzsprout customer service allowed me time to wait for my new card before paying them my monthly fee. I was worried my late payment would mean my archive would be gone and the hard work of two years would be lost forever. Once I let them know they gave me a 30-day window to pay them their fee and I told myself then that I would not forget it.

Recommendations to other buyers: Customer loyalty, no spammy emails

Pros: Ease of use, great tutorials

Cons: The tags now being listed in separate purple circles. I like the tags in a list better.

Overall: Two years ago I began reviewing different podcasting software programs for my church. I read many reviews and looked at many different software packages and ultimately chose Buzzsprout due to its user-friendly interface and great tutorials and directions. Buzzsprout is cost-effective for our small parish as I only upload 4-5 homilies each month. The unlimited storage offered by Buzzsprout is another feature that attracted me. I like the Stats page which allows me to see what device and program listeners are using to hear the podcasts. Our public site was easy to set up through Buzzsprout and the directions on how to establish an iTunes channel were perfect. There was one change made several months ago that I don't like and that has to do with the tags for each podcast episode. The tags used to be listed in a box, making it easy to copy them from an existing podcast to a new podcast, but now each tag is displayed in a purple circle so in order for me to copy the list from one podcast to another one I have to remember to open an existing podcast and copy the list, then close that podcast and go to Upload a New Episode. It adds an extra step. However, I still love Buzzsprout and wouldn't consider switching to a different software

Pros: Easy to use, easy step by step instructions, very user friendly, stats are easy to understand, communicating any issue via twitter is a pretty quick response

Cons: The price is a little higher than others, but the quality of service is excellent and makes up for it.

Overall: We've been using Buzzsprout to host our show for almost a year. They have an easy step by step instructions on how to send your show to iTunes, GooglePlay, and Stitcher. Easy to understand stats that update ever 6 hours! Anytime I've had an issue or a question (which is rare because of how user friendly it is) they are quick to respond on twotter(that's how I contacted them when I have an issue). I've recommended Buzzsprout to many other podcasts, and will continue. You may find cheaper prices, but you are also getting a great quality that others can't offer.

Shameless promotion, go check out our show Secret Transmission Podcast

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are looking for an easy to use, and easy to understand, this is the hosting you should ise

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: You can't download your podcasts to save them offline.

Overall: My daughter and I started recording our nightly conversations and posting them as a podcast. We wanted to see if there was a market for what we had to offer. It could NOT have been easier. Setting it up, marketing, posting, and keeping track of metrics was a breeze. Even when we eventually decided to stop casting, the entire process was very easy. We are paying a small fee right now to keep the recordings because I want to keep them for when she's older, and that was easy to do as well.

If you are looking to dip your feet in the podcasting waters, Buzzsprout is the way to go.

Pros: Ease of use for both the uploader and the listener. We have never had anyone report that they were unable to listen to a message. Buzzsprout supports a variety of browsers and operating systems. I cannot think of any other technology product we use that simply works as well as Buzzsprout with as little fuss.

Cons: None - it works just as it is supposed to work!

Overall: I have been using Buzzsprout on behalf of my church for about two years now. It is simple to upload an MP3 file of our sermon, and members of our church have reported no difficulty listening to or downloading the file. It is rare than any product has so high a success rate with the broad age demographics of a church, but Buzzsprout is one. The website is easy to use, and Buzzsprout's player embeds easily into our own website. Their range of service plans meet well a range of needs. Without Buzzsprout, we would find sharing our audio messages much more difficult. A great service and product!

Recommendations to other buyers: Use it!

Pros: Easy to use. Good looking player.

Cons: Price point and no unlimited download limit

Overall: I've been using Buzzsprout for 4 years and it has helped take our podcast to new heights. It is easy to use and easy way to share our podcast. The new Facebook feature where you can add a 30 second video snip of your podcast is really cool. I like that I have a 4 year archive of my show all in one place. The only thing I wish was different is that there is now Unlimited download price point. For the amount of podcast I do I need that. Also the price is more expensive than other platforms.

Recommendations to other buyers: Great stuff. Easy to use. Looks good.

From the beginning, they were easy to set up and use. The stats are great. And they make integration with the iTunes, Google Play, and my own website very easy. I don't have any complaints about the service or uptime. I know that I can depend on them for consistent, reliable service. And I have recommended Buzzsprout to friends and colleagues.

Recommendations to other buyers: I wish there were a way to pay for service for the whole year.

Pros: I've used this platform for multiple podcast projects. It's intuitive and user-friendly. In particular, it's possible to see your analytics--something that has been difficult on iTunes, for example. The data about number of listeners, platforms, devices, etc. are all extremely helpful. Buzzsprout also makes distribution simple across platforms, with autopublishing features to various podcast players and the ability to embed Buzzsprout's player into any webpage or blog post. The ability to manage multiple podcasts from a single account is helpful as well.

Cons: I haven't had any complaints about Buzzsprout. It does what I've needed it to do.

Overall: I've used Buzzsprout for both personal and organizational podcast projects. In every instance it's been a time-saver and, ultimately, a cost-saver because it saves server space. Recommended.

Great value for the money, intuitive upload process.

Pros: I use buzzsprout on an almost weekly basis. The upload process is very easy and quick.

The amount of storage provided each month is more than sufficient for my needs and I love the ability to add more each month instead of upgrading my entire plan. I also enjoy the snipets you can produce and posting to Facebook and Instagram is a breeze.

Cons: The major concern for me is the inability to post to YouTube. Hosting a podcast is great, but getting it to all avenues is important. YouTube is a big medium that I wish was available to post to.

Another issue I'd like to see is more updated statistics and listeners information. I'd like to know exactly where and when my listeners tune in.

Also a Live feature would be awesome to have as an option for broadcasting.

Overall: We use this software to promote, produce and distribute our podcast on a weekly basis. This software allows us to do this in a clean, easy manner that is visually appealing to our customers.

Pros: Ease of use. Up-time. Podcast feature. Able to create players to play recordings with specific tags.

Cons: Nothing

Overall: Buzzsprout has been the perfect resource for us to share sermons on our website. The functionality on the backend is easy to use for our volunteers. We have never run into a time when we couldn't upload or play sermons.

The flexibility to create custom players for special series has been on of our favorite features. It is easy to select a certain tag and then copy and paste the code into our WordPress site. The podcast option does all the work for you.

I recommend this great resource, especially for the great price!

Recommendations to other buyers: Unsure about how much customization that can be done to fit the look at feel of a website. There may be those features, we just may not know about them or use them. The basic look is simple and flexible for many kinds of sites. It would be nice if there was a mini player that is even smaller than the one offered (just being picky).

Pros: Stats

Cons: Limited choices when customizing my Buzzsprout website.

Overall: This was my first attempt at Podcasting and Buzzsprout made it easy for this first-timer! I'm far from tech-savvy, but I didn't find it difficult or discouraging while navigating their site and the overall process. For remaining questions, I was able to get prompt and personal responses that were actually helpful. And with the different plans, I was able to try it out at a small level and then bump up once I discovered that the process was worthwhile. Since beginning about a year and a half ago, I've now made some customizable changes to my Buzzsprout site. The choices in this regard were somewhat limited, but at least there were choices. I think I like most of all the "Stats" access where I can see such things as how many times each episode is listened to, where the listeners are located in the world, and other interesting information. For my needs, Buzzsprout provides me an excellent value and a positive experience! I highly recommend Buzzsprout, even to those who are just getting started in Podcasting for the first time!

Recommendations to other buyers: Make it more clear that the entry-level plan does not preserve episodes indefinitely.

with an average of 18 podcasts every week, Buzzsprout is the most convenient and effective tool.

Pros: Ease of use. Layout. Features.

Cons: Needs a slight tweak to make scheduling the release date a little easier to set before file uploads.

Overall: I can't imagine how anyone would make hosting and distributing a podcast any easier than Buzzsprout has made it. The sound quality is terrific, customer service is quick and extremely helpful, and I like that features continue to be added. My only suggestion is to put the release date field a little closer to the top of the form for uploading an episode. If your file is small it's too easy for it to upload before you have a chance to set the date, which can cause an episode to be released before you want it to on some services. Other than that - and even with that - we are still extremely satisfied.

Recommendations to other buyers: Any features you can continue to add that will aid in advertising would be appreciated. That's the hardest part of all this it seems - finding your audience and getting them to listen. And if someday you guys want to do an all-in-one solution that facilitates VOIP and recording that would be GREATLY welcomed. There are very options for that currently.

Pros: Very simple to use, intuitive and great easy-to-understand statistics and embedded player options

Cons: The cut-off for paid time - unused time is not carried froward to the next billing period

Overall: I was new to podcasting when I started a little over 15 months ago, but Buzzsprout made it easy from the off. The statistics and support make it easy to maintain and tailor my broadcasting, with very little from me in the way of prior knowledge or hard work - which means I can focus on content rather than technical issues on hosting; after all I don't want to be in IT Support! I started on the very entry-level of Buzzsprout's offerings, but quickly went to a higher volume content when I was established, and the transition was seamless. My only ask would be for unused time to be carried over to the next billing period, which would make the service absolutely perfect, as my job means my output isn't as regular as I'd like, so I might have only a single short 'cast one month and then 3-4 longer ones next month, which means either delaying output or paying for extra time.

Pros: Ease of use, cool new design

Cons: See message re: stats

Overall: I've been loving my experience with Buzzsprout. Whenever I can, I let people know about how phenomenal you all are. Your customer service is incredible! You're so responsive and friendly. Customer service representative was awesome. He's been my major point of contact and he's been incredibly helpful.

If I had to pick one thing you all could improve, and this is very minor, it would be providing more access to more robust statistics. For example, one of my friends posted that his podcast was downloaded in over 70 countries. I didn't have access to that info on my statistics page; however, when I sent Alban an email, he was able to get the info from the tech team. It would be helpful to have those numbers at my fingertips. Similarly, it would be nice if we could have more in-depth metrics for individual episodes that match the metrics we get for the show as a whole. I think people would be more eager to share their episode if they knew that, for example, 12 people heard their episode in Myanmar.

Many people are in the podcasting game for sponsorship. If our statistics were more robust, it would make our stories more powerful.

Thanks again for all you've done, are doing, and will do. I appreciate you!

Cons: Haven't been a big fan of the embedded player, but it's been a while since we've used that feature so it's probably improved since then.

Overall: Our church has been using Buzzsprout for a few years now and it's been very easy for the staff to publish the weekly sermons online. I am a full-time web developer and volunteer some of my time to help with the church's website. When looking into options for publishing sermons online, I wanted something that was so easy that technical assistance wouldn't be required on a regular basis. Buzzsprout fit the bill perfectly. Our folks have done a great job using it and it's a cinch for visitors of our website to find and listen to recent sermons. I do see some room for improvement in terms of the UI and features overall, but couldn't we all use a little improvement? Good app.

Pros: Ease of use, intuitive software. Makes running several podcasts very easy. I also like being able to see stats and find out where my listeners are listening from.

Cons: The only con is I consistently go over the 12 hours of content per month on their highest plan and it can get pricey. I'd like another pricing tier with more than 12 hours per month.

However with a large number of radio programmes on Buzzsprout some form of alphabetic indexing and search would be useful.

Pros: I love the dashboard! It allows me to see my content, views/listens to episode, and how many hours of upload time I have available in each location. Also with Buzzsprout, I am able to have my most current episode featured on my website plus it automatically updates every week!

Cons: I wish that the built in Buzzsprout player was a little more intuitive and clean. I have had people who have had issues fast forwarding and rewinding, so I always have to push people to third party podcast companies (e.g., Apple, Stitcher, etc.).

Overall: Ease of pushing our podcast to various third party platforms. A database of all our episodes so that we have an archive in one location.

Pros: Easy of use and cost.

Cons: Visual Audio is not a user friendly as I would like it to be.

Overall: A few years ago I was looking for a company to host my church's sermons. We are a small church with limited resources but still wanted to increase our internet footprint. After receiving recommendations from other pastors one told me about Buzzsprout. I was initially impressed at the cost for hosting. $12/month for 3 hours of audio (regardless of file size) is the best price I have been able to find. Once I signed up I was even more impressed by how easy it is to actually get your podcast uploaded. The stats they offer are easy to understand and a great way to see just how much people are listening and where. And, the buzzsprout team is constantly working to improve their product and recently rolled out their "visual audio" platform which is another great way to get my podcast recognized. Overall this is a wonderful product that I highly recommend to anyone looking for podcast hosting.

Recommendations to other buyers: Its so easy to use.

I've been using Buzzsprout for almost 4 years and haven't had a single complaint about the service.

Pros: Buzzsprout is very easy to use. The explanations given to help you along with the experience are very easy to understand, and any time that I do have a question, it's already been answered and I can easily find it. Uploading new episodes is very simple, and I've suggested it to many friends who wanted to get into podcast themselves. The prices are very fair for the time allotted each month.

Cons: The only thing about the service I don't necessarily fully understand is the calculations used to determine what a "listener" is, which is different than a subscriber.

Overall: Quick and easy use for uploading all of my podcasts.

Pros: Buzzsprout software and the interface is easy to use, it provides all the features I needed to get my work published and available to those who need it. It connects my podcasts to several services, and provides a great homepage for my work. Finally, I like the way it integrates with facebook with its video preview clips.

Cons: I wish I could customize the homepage and the interactions with the homepage a little more. More advanced podcasters may find buzzspout to be entry-level, but it is perfect for what I need.

Overall: Buzzsprout allows me to upload mp3 files of my weekly sermon with great easy. I use it and love it.

Overall: Buzzsprout is very user friendly, easy to understand and the plug-in for Wordpress is perfect for what I need. I love the features that tell us where people are listening from, and on what devices. The only things I would suggest is having a feature for knowing how many downloads we have for each episode, and having the locations/devices option for all episodes, not just last 5-10 days. I'd love a more detailed analysis regarding stats.

Comments: Easy to use, that's the first thing that got me eager to use Buzzsprout as my podcast uploading software. The one thing I really appreciate and find extremely useful is the fact that you can check out your data per episode. What country listeners to your show, how many listeners and on what platform. Extremely useful when you seek to figure out how to reach your public.

Their Customer service was quick and very polite when It came to helping me fix a problem that I had uploading an episode of my show. They mailed me back right away and fixed the issue in less than an hour. Now that's what I call customer service dedication. I know my review might seem too perfect but that is the experience I am having with them. Everything is just swell. I produce a podcast episode of about 1h30min to 2h every month and their platform has been perfect for my show. A lot of options are there for you also, as in adding an illustration for each episode and a description, perfect tools to get a show on a professional level. Linking up to Stitcher and iTunes is also very helpful for users that are not tech savvy like myself with programming language. The only thing I am looking forward to is what new options are coming next. If you are starting up a Podcast and want to get the data about how many listeners you have and getting it on big platforms like iTunes, then Buzzsprout is totally what you are looking for.

Pros: ease of use and stats

Cons: I would like there to be packages for those who want to host multiple podcasts, ($30 for 4 podcasts at 3 hours/mo)

I have 6+ plus podcasts 3 of them I host with buzzsprout and the other 3 I use wordpress + Seriously Simple Podcasting using hosting from bluehost. I'd love to be able to have all my podcasts on buzzsprout but $12/mo adds up after a couple of shows.

There could even be less time suck at $30/mo for 5 podcasts with 1 hour/mo each

Overall: I now have three podcasts with buzzsprout and feel extremely happy with the ability to easily upload new episodes and get them distributed. I've never had any difficulties and find the available stats very useful in managing my podcast.

The only thing I'd consider is maybe bundle pricing for people doing multiple podcasts, (like $30/mo for up 4 podcasts at

Recommendations to other buyers: features I'd be willing to pay for as an add-on - Basic Email Marketing Features - Being able to create premium content that doesn't hit the RSS feed but people who pay a subscription can access

Got it all sorted and handed it off to one of our high schoolers who manages it for me. Super easy. Super great. Perfect solution.

Pros: It is easy to upload audio files to Buzzsprout. It is also easy for your audience to listen to your content across a variety of platforms. I have never had anyone complain that they could not listen to my podcast, and my organization's audience includes many older adults. The software is simple to use on my end and my audience's end.

Cons: As far as pricing plans, I wish there was a level between the free service and the lowest current pricing plan.

Overall: An easy to use platform to distribute audio content to a large number of users using an equally large number of platforms.

Comments: As a first time podcaster, but with radio experience, my concerns were all about the technical side of ensuring I could get our podcast onto iTunes and other services in an easy and efficient manner. But I've also found the Buzzsprout embedded player to be very useful and most of all, the features that the service provides are all really easy to use and well explained.

The analytics are great, not only do you get stats on numbers of listeners, but also where in the world or where in your country they are from, the devices they are using to listen to your podcast and the software they're using to download it. This makes things like advertising, tailoring content, improvements on the run a real breeze.

The back end support is fantastic, I've actually only needed them once and the reply was prompt and easy to follow. It was something I could have probably worked out myself, but wanted to be sure as I'm a first timer and it's nice to know you're not forgotten once you pay your money.

Which is another aspect that attracted me to Buzzsprout. You get a reliable service, that's easy to use at a really good price. I compared similar products and the others just didn't stack up. I simply go where the best value is, without ever wanting to disappoint listeners with endless drop outs. Never been a problem and I'm genuinely really happy with the choice we made.

Pros: Ease of use, worked as advertised. It was really easy to get everything setup and then push podcast episodes as I needed too. They also have a nice embedded player that is optimized for mobile use too.

Cons: I hated my experience when I decided to leave and switch to another podcast host. They advertise that it will be an easy process, but they made it difficult with all of the games that they were playing with me. They tried to use scare tactics to make me stay instead of just doing what they say they do.

Uploading is very simple, getting listed on iTunes and other sites is a quick and easy process, the tracking is great, and it's one of the best monthly rates available. I didn't rate customer service because I've never needed to call them, which is a strong point in itself. The site itself and web players aren't the flashiest thing but you shouldn't be using that as your main portal to listeners anyway. Overall, a great service that always works and it's at a great price point. Win-win-win. Make the poster into a t-shirt.

Overall: We use Buzzsprout to put our pastor's sermons online for people to listen to if they miss church, leave town, are unable to attend, etc. We only have the free program, so two hours/month is just right for us. They are deleted after 90 days online, but favorites are kept on a computer at home. Since this is a free service, we are very happy for the value. We have had no customer service contact, so can't really speak to that.

Super easy to use. I was able to set up my podcast quickly and easily. The step by step instructions for how to syndicate the podcast to iTunes, Stitcher and Google Play were easy to follow. I had zero prior experience with podcasting and Buzzsprout has made me look like a pro. And their costs are super reasonable and flexible.

Pros: user friendly easy to use fast and uplinks are easy, we upload to satellite and the reviews we get from over seventy countries rate us at very high quality and fantastic content, we literally reach all around the world

Cons: limited to other podcast connections would like to make Buzzsprout the only upload needed to reach all other podcast we have to upload to at least five other servers the signal strength is very important and noise is not a problem according to the millions of listeners

Excellent overall use. Easy and simple to use. Maintaining and updating information is great.

Pros: Uploading of the files easy and straightforward and the help files are actually useful. Setting up the player for various uses was a piece of cake. Maintaining the site is straight forward and having access to stats on views, informative and shows if you are progressing in the right direction.

Cons: Setting up for iTunes and Google Play was a bit tricky, but mostly because of their requirements. This took a bit of time to figure out. The help from Buzzsprout fixed this problem.

This was my hosting for a while and I'm continuing to use it for one of my podcasts.

Pros: Very easy to upload content, customize the website, and view stats. The free plan is great to start out or if you are on a tight budget. And the stats are amazing. Customer service is great as well. I would defiantly recommend Buzzsprout.

Cons: The free plan deletes you episodes after 90 days. I would like it better if they had an "hour" limit instead of automatically deleting them. Also it is a little more expensive then other hosting plans to upgrade.

Overall: Jump into podcasting!

Cons: I haven't really found any cons.

Overall: Wanting to start a sermon podcast for our church plant and being technically challenged made Buzzsprout my choice. I looked at several options and prices, Buzzsprout came on top. I am able to edit, upload, and promote my podcast in less than 10 minutes. In clearly labeled directions. I have never had a problem so have not needed to contact customer support. The feedback we have received has confirmed that our podcasts are heard all over the world. Thank you, Buzzsprout!

Recommendations to other buyers: I have wondered if a stand-alone app was being considered?

Overall: Pretty happy with Buzzsprout. It is a good pricing model and when you have questions, the emails usually come back within 24 hours. And, often, the techs have gone out of their way to help resolve issues, not that there have been many at all. The only thing about features is I am loving their new Facebook Snippet Tool, I just would like 60 secs instead of 30, but they know that :-)

Recommendations to other buyers: Like it overall. Great people.

Pros: Web based - easy to use.

Cons: Often my recordings use a lot of the same info from week to week - and so I have to go to a previous week to copy and paste the same info into the new week. Wish there was a simpler and faster way to do this when creating a new podcast. That's a minor complaint though!

Overall: We've been using Buzzsprout for a bout two years now to host our sermon recordings for church. I love that the site is so flexible - iTunes, custom Buzzsprout site, linked without our app, and now the visual recordings to advertize in our social media accounts. It's been easy to use and easy to train our church media volunteers to post recordings for us. Would highly recommend to any church thinking about getting their sermons online.

Pros: I love the ease of use. It makes sense and helped me get setup and on all the right networks.

Cons: I wish I could have more insight into some of the metrics. Help me with the bookkeeping of stats and growth. The "listener" algorithm is interesting but not quite useful enough for me to approach potentially advertisers that are just looking for raw count and numbers.

Overall: 16 months ago my buddy and I wanted to start podcasting and I knew nothing about the hosting side of things. I knew how to record a quality file but had no idea what to do next. BuzzSprout makes sure that my files look right, tag right, and have helped us build a consistent and growing podcast.

Recommendations to other buyers: Keep it up! It's great and I am thankful!

Pros: I use the 3 hr a month service, and if I go over, I only have to pay for the extra time for that month. It's very easy to upload episodes, get stats, and send the podcast out to the web.

Cons: I haven't had any issues with Buzzsprout in the year and a half I've been using it.

Overall: When I was first looking for a podcast hosting service, I attended Podcast Movement and met the people at Buzzsprout. They were very helpful, and their services and prices met my needs. I especially like their feature of transferring existing podcasts to their service. The stats are also very easy to use, and uploading an episode is super easy and fast. Wonderful service!

Recommendations to other buyers: Just be sure to choose the proper level for your podcast needs.

Cons: I sit between the free service and the pay service, so some months I need to pay and others I don't. I end up paying each month, but I'd love it if hours not used one month would credit the next month. That would make it free for me as on average I use few enough hours to fit into the free category.... It might not make business sense though.

Overall: We are able to podcast weekly messages from our church

I'd like to be able to not just link to another site for the podcast but integrate it as a module or even a page on my site more fluidly... not a huge deal tho...

Overall: I have been using Buzzsprout for my podcasting and audio web hosting needs for over a decade. I have found their customer service to be personal and helpful every time. I am not a techy person and have very little time or resources to pour into our online content -- which is why I started and stayed with Buzzsprout. Even I can figure out how to successfully upload files to it. Even I can figure out how to link to it from my website and Facebook page. The price is right for me and the simplicity of it is right for me.

Pros: The ability to update, publish, and share our podcast. It also does a great job of keeping up with changes and adding useful features. Stats? Check. Album art? Check. Easy to embed on your website and publish on multiple platforms? Check.

Overall: An all-in-one solution for publishing our podcast. It is both robust and easy to use.

It honestly just gets better as time goes on. Almost every update includes a new and useful feature, and it's never failed to meet our podcast publishing needs.

Cons: That the free service downloads have a time limit.

Overall: I am able to share information with my clients and audience to build trust - they know who I am by HEARING me. Additionally, I am able to direct people to my podcasts through my newsletter and social platforms. It's just easy.

Cons: I wish there was a better fast forward, rewind option on the buzzsprout player.

Overall: I have nothing but amazing things to say about Buzzsprout. Being a church, we have to get our message out to those who are waiting for it. We have had issues with other services, but with Buzzsprout, we have never had any hiccups, glitches, or delays. With the ability to push our content to iTunes and Stitcher, our message continues to reach more and more people every week.

Pros: This software is easy to use, and easy to post to the internet. I like that there are links available to copy and paste onto other websites and to social media.

Cons: The free service doesn't have enough free space.

Overall: We use the Buzzsprout free service to publish weekly sermons for our church. We only wish there were more free space each month because sometimes we need to hold off publishing until our minutes renew. Since we are a small church, we don't have the funds to pay for the paid service. Thank you, though, for the free service. It is very easy to use.

Recommendations to other buyers: Used in conjunction with Audacity audio editing service, the Buzzsprout format is just what we needed to publish our church's weekly sermons for free.

Comments: Incredibly easy to upload audio. Visual presentation to listeners is continually improving. The ability to create an 'app' button is a nice feature, but you'd have to have some hardcore, dedicated fans to want that rather than just a bookmark on their browser. The analytics are great although they may not be detailed enough for super-serious users. For shorter or less serious productions, the free tier is a nice option. Finally, the new Facebook audio post feature is a great idea that I'm sure will continue to improve. Some early concerns are pixel/sharpness problems with the title, and the fact that the custom titles only display if the viewer opens the presentation in a new window. But, it is quick and easy for anyone needing to produce several without too much time or effort. Personally, I'd rather create a mini movie where I'm not bound by the 30 second limit and I can add a photo montage if I like. However, this takes a little more time and effort, and some familiarity with audio/video programs. Overall, I'm very pleased with this service. I'm a 'maximizer,' so I researched probably too much when it came to choosing a host. Of course, there's no better way to see if you like it than to give it a try.

Cons: The upload of the podcasting file and the description of the file could be linked better. It's too easy to complete the description and forget to finish the download (or vice versa). User error (me) is half the problem, but there you are.

Overall: Buzzsprout has been my primary podcast host for over 8 years.

While updating and refreshing their platform and features, they have maintained their dependability, ease of use, and good customer service.

They have a variety of plans available, particularly helpful for your small-timer like myself who puts something out there 3-5 times / month. And with that somewhat slow rate of production, I never feel like I'm wasting my money with Buzzsprout.

I have been really impressed with your company.

Pros: Buzzsprout is a really easy, simple platform to use, yet quite feature rich in what it offers. We love that it's easy to access from anywhere - as a multi site church our old system of being tied to one iMac with multiple apps needed to create a podcast is now a thing of the past. Buzzsprout's support team a brilliant too, they understand podcasting and are really helpful and responsive!

Cons: The embedding and integration options could do with a bit if work; whilst we can create embed urls for certain tags and speakers, it would be great to see that taken a step further and have an embeddable player with filter options.

Overall: It's decentralised and streamlined what was a time consuming and onerous task. Our responsiveness in keeping our podcast updated had dramatically improved.

Hi Peter,

Thank you for your review. We actually do have the ability to filter by artists and tags in the embed players. Here's a help article on how to do that: https://www.buzzsprout.com/help/18-advanced-embed-tips

Though, I think we could do a better job of showing that feature on the embed page, so I've passed your review on to the team.

Thanks!

Pros: Its simply so easy and flexible . I can do a new recording and have it up and running in 5 minutes ...Awesome

Cons: That I cant have single audios on my website ....With the singles I don't want my clients to have the ability to scroll to other audios because my podcasts are used in a paid membership site. I would also like a private button .

Overall: Everything is working fine ...I just have a wish list ...I would like the option of only putting single audios on certain parts of the website and then have the whole lot in my classroom for members . I use my Buzz for a teaching tool so I have a classroom where i add all my audios and then as mentioned would love to add seperate audios to particular pages ...As is I have to use other storage for that which is annoying . I would also like the ability to have paid audios . Outside of that, ease of use and customer care you guys are the best ...love the product

Pros: Buzzsprout is laid out really nicely and has a good variety of inputs. It also offers really fast upload speed for the audio clips. They do a nice job with the layout and the transition into itunes. Everything is simple and has a good flow to it.

Cons: I dont have many cons with Buzzsprout..One thing I noticed is that they offer a 30 second or less clip that you can load to facebook or other platforms. Great idea and ease of use, but I think it should offer an option to upload a different picture other than a sound wave photo.

Pros: Ease of use. Ease of billing

Cons: I would like to see more location analytics than the top 10 countries and cities, and the last 1,5,and 10 episode aggregates.

Overall: Buzzsprout is very easy to use and promote your podcast. Monthly hourly upload limits and unlimited active storage are a perfect fit for our business needs at this time. The episode analytics are an excellent feature integrated into the offering that I hadn't seen from other hosting services at this level.

Pros: Buzzsprout is straight forward and very professional. I love the layout and how easy it is to use on a regular basis. Buzzsprout makes it so easy to upload and edit episodes I especially love how easy they layout the stats, it's so easy to understand and see how well each episode is doing. I've never had an issue with support on any web or OS.

Cons: I don't love their pricing tiers. The highest tier only allows us to upload 12 hours per month. If you go over that it begins to get very pricey. I wish that there was another option to allow for 20 or more hours. Other than that I don't have many complaints. The product works as advertises and I've enjoyed using it.

Pros: Very easy to use. Free option works quite well for basic needs.

Cons: I've had a few occasions where the file name wouldn't immediately update after an upload, but that's a pretty minor issue.

Overall: Buzzsprout has been great to us. I love that they have a free option that is genuinely workable (and not just a limited pseudo-account) so you can test the service or get a starter podcast off the ground. The upload tools are very easy to use. Thanks!

Overall positive, lacking some features.

Pros: Easy to use, quick upload time, and reasonably priced. The layout for the admin page is clear and straightforward.

Cons: The website for the shows themselves are a bit messy. The stats are also a bit lacking. For example, I wish there was a way to see ALL the locations where the podcast has played instead of just the top. Also, see the locations of individual episodes.

Pros: Easy, reliable, affordable, flexible, easily customized, provides stats.

Cons: Wish the stats could be a little more specific.

Overall: Buzzsprout is perfect for us. We didn't have anyone knew how to manage and produce a podcast. Finding Buzzsprout was the perfect solution for us. It's affordable. It's flexible if we ever need to decrease or increase our needs. We have NEVER had a problem with their service. It is incredibly easy! We highly recommend it!

Pros: I like how its free

and as a beginner, its easy to understand the most of the rules

on the site

Cons: It was hard to understand when your "time" renewed.

Its not a calendar month, so the actual time when it renews

is funny, so you have to learn how to budget your "time" well

Overall: I have been using Buzzsprout for my podcast "Eye For An I" and it has been a simple and easy beginning. I have not had any trouble and everything is pretty much spelled out got you and easy to use. I actually do not have a single complaint. I am close to a year in using this and have no plans on leaving the site. #EyeForMrJ

Overall: I've been using Buzzsprout for close to 4 years I believe. They make uploading podcasts as easy as it could possibly be I think. I love that with very little effort in the initial setup, we were able to have an iTunes podcast also with every episode. Integration into our website was very easy. Buzzsprout is an affordable, simple, and effective tool for recordings. I imagine we'll use it for years to come.

Overall: As a church administrative assistant, one of my many tasks is uploading sermons and church services to our website, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Buzzsprout is a very easy tool to use to ensure the upload is quick, easy to use, and fool proof. It's so easy to use that I highly recommend it to end users of any level of computer expertise.

Recommendations to other buyers: Great for small businesses in need of a tool to grow their customer base!

If I could give ten stars to customer support, I would.

Pros: The customer service

Cons: I wish I could search Buzzsprout for other buzzsprout podcasts.

Overall: The two times I have had issues with my podcast, Buzzsprout has handled the problem with great speed and an attitude that they put MY problem ahead of everything else. That is a rare thing in tech and it earned my loyalty. I do let others know about Buzzsprout whenever people ask, and have mentioned their great customer service more than once on my podcast.
