A quick, reliable and easy way to move podcast hosts with no loss of episodes or listeners.
Hey, I'm Mark, co-founder of Captivate.
I've produced over 1,100 podcast episodes since 2013. Since then, I have been trying to find a podcast host that makes it easier to consistently grow an audience and where I feel like more than just a recurring payment.
After using all of the "usual" hosts, I couldn't find anything. So, we created Captivate and since then, have helped thousands of podcasts just like yours across the world to grow.
We treat you like more than just a set of payment details and actively help you to grow your podcast through our weekly feature releases, community and personal support.
We know you care about your podcast and I'm excited to help you to grow.
Keep all of your listeners in all of these apps, and more!
All of your subscribers will stick around in other places like Overcast, PocketCasts and every other podcast app, too.
Why move from your current host?

Moving an iconic pop culture brand to Captivate
Jamie Anderson, the producer of The Gerry Anderson Podcast and son of legendary TV & film producer Gerry Anderson, reached out to Captivate to help with breaking the growth plateau of the show - here's what Jamie said when we asked him why:
"The show was doing ok, but I wasn't happy with the tough interface and lack of personal support from my previous podcast host so I began to research what else was available. When I found Captivate, the team was so responsive and the platform so focussed on audience growth that I knew I'd found the perfect new home for the show.
The move to Captivate was really quick and easy. All of our listeners stuck around and the support team were really helpful in reassuring me throughout the process.
Since the move, we've smashed the growth plateau and also launched a star-studded new audio drama called 'First Action Bureau' with huge personal support from Mark & the Captivate team!".
