How does podcast hosting work?
For beginners, I have to tell you that the platforms like Spotify, Prime Music, and Resso don’t have the recordings of your podcast. They don’t stream your podcast. The platforms like Buzzsprout, RSS.com, and Anchor have your podcast recordings.
These hosting platforms connect to streaming services and ultimately your audience can enjoy your podcast. Hosting platforms send an RSS feed to the streaming platforms. When a user listens to your podcast, it is fed by hosting platforms.
Streaming platforms are just for users. You can’t create a podcast on streaming platforms. Now, let’s see a free podcast hosting platform exclusively for beginners.
