Adding content

Publishing your interview content on Padverb is easy! If you already have a podcast, you can submit your RSS feed for indexing and once it's added, label your guests. If you are just starting out and are not sure what RSS is, don't worry! Just record your interview, upload the audio file, and label your guest(s). We'll take care of the rest.

Exporting content

Episodes uploaded directly to Padverb can be exported to other aggregator platforms, including Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and Spotify. This free option is activated when you have at least one uploaded interview in your portfolio.

Matchmaking with Guests

You can use Padverb to discover new, exciting interview guests. Our site lists more than 15,000 influencers organized by professional category, such as authors economists, journalists, etc. You can also search profiles by name and browse interviews by keyword.

Creating an Interview Portfolio

Use Padverb to create and grow your podcast interview portfolio. If you have ever been a guest on an episode of a publicly available podcast, we will gladly add that interview to your profile. Click the Add button on your profile page and send us a link to the episode or the podcast's RSS link. Your Padverb profile can also feature your photo, bio, and social media links.

Getting Discovered

Once you create a profile and establish your portfolio—even if it consists of a single interview at first—both listeners and hosts will be able to discover it. They can find you by looking you up directly, of course, as well as by browsing the profiles of those podcasters (hosts or guests) you have interviews with, by browsing the topical guest directories, or by doing a keyword search.

Matchmaking with Hosts

Once you add your professional categories to your profile, our system can recommend hosts who have previously talked to influencers from similar professional backgrounds.

Discovering and following people

Our platform is choke-full of amazing interview content and is growing rapidly. Try browsing our most popular profiles, check out the list of profile categories, or just do a keyword search. On Padverb, you can follow anyone—host, guest, or listener. Clicking "Follow" ensures that the person's interview content is automatically added to your personal feed as soon as it's added to Padverb. If the person you follow is a Padverb user, your feed will also contain every episode they "liked."

Curating content

Whether or not you publish your own interview content, your profile can be followed by other Padverb users: all interviews you "like" will be added to your followers' personal feeds. Your likes are thus public.

Organizing your bookmarks

If you simply want to set aside a few episodes to listen to later, then the "bookmark" button will let you do just that. Your bookmarks are private and can not be seen by other users.
