Integrated Interview Management

Once your guests have booked their interview using Captivate, you can manage the whole process from your dashboard.

From gathering the right information for your show to making sure that cancelations and reschedules are simply communicated, Captivate handles it all.

Complete with a memorable public booking link, total availability control, and direct integration with your favorite remote recording platforms, Captivate's interview management features save you time AND money.

IAB-Certified Podcast Analytics

As the podcast industry continues to develop and evolve, the one thing that we are dedicated to as a podcast hosting platform is of course, the accuracy of your podcast analytics.

We are passionate about getting closer to the people listening, not just the number of file downloads that your podcast receives and that's why, Captivate, is proud to say that we are IAB-certified as a podcast analytics provider.

Quickly & Easily Distribute Your Podcast Everywhere, with a Single Click

Podcast distribution is a vital part of podcasting. Making your show available in as many outlets as possible gives you the best possible chance to reach new listeners across the globe, on any device.

Captivate's distribution center takes away all of that confusion and makes it easy (and free!) to submit your podcast to every directory in the world, with handy quick links for submission (and one-click submission for the podcast platforms that support it.)
