Ad Painter

Replace old baked-in content with new, dynamic content using Captivate's bulk ad painter technology.

Simply paint over your old audio and either upload replacement snippets or ask Captivate to dynamically insert something - perfect for getting rid of old adverts or out-of-date content without re-editing your episode!

Dynamic Show Notes Builder

Save hours per week with Captivate's Dynamic Show Notes Builder, making creating discoverable and useful show notes so much more efficient.

By pulling in data from across your podcast dashboard (such as episode plans, guest details, research links, marketing, and sponsor links), Captivate will automatically construct useful show notes and publish them to your podcast episodes.

Episode Planning

Plan your episodes, connect research links from across the web, add private production notes, link guests to episodes and print or email your episode plans to your team, guests, and more.

Then, convert your planned episodes to live episodes with one click - goodbye copy and paste!

Plus... Captivate will build your show notes for you automatically from your plan!

Research links

It's always great to be able to link out to sites and resources that are mentioned in that episode.

Not only does this make it easy for the listener to read about the topics discussed, but it helps your show notes stand out and act as a deep-dive resource. Add Research Links at any stage of your workflow.

Research Links Browser Extension

Using Captivate's Research Links feature, you can easily collate links and add them to your episode plans or directly to your show notes.

Deep research equals high-quality episodes. Now you can achieve that quality in a fraction of the time, and link all relevant episode links to guests, episodes, and planned productions.

Download Captivate's Podcast Research Tool extension for Chrome and save any link to your podcast research!

Once a guest has booked, Captivate handles all of the reminder emails and even gives you the guest's details to integrate into your episodes directly. Bye bye, copy and paste!
