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.

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.
