About Goodpods - Podcast App

Goodpods is a fast-growing, award-winning, free podcast player and podcast discovery app featured by Fast Company, Inc. Magazine, and more! Listen to, discover, and share all your favorite podcasts and shows that haven’t yet hit your radar.

We started Goodpods for those moments when you're staring at your phone -- about to hop in the car or go for a run -- wondering what podcast to listen to next, wishing that someone would magically appear with a good recommendation. In other words… podcast paralysis!

And who better to get those recommendations from than friends who know you best or people you admire? This already exists with books. And music. We just wanted it for podcasts too!

Before launching the Goodpods podcast player, we looked hard at other popular podcast apps. And we’ve come up with a free podcast player and podcast discovery app that you’ll absolutely love. The good news is that it’s catching fire!

With Goodpods, you can find new and exciting podcasts and listen to all-time favorites! Discover podcasts that your followers are recommending and posting on your feed. Check out what other people are listening to and find your next series.

Like and comment on podcasts that other people post about. Create discussions, join groups and share your thoughts on podcasts that pique your interest. Find podcasts to follow, interact with podcasters and hosts, and find your listening community!

Goodpods Features:

Podcast Player:
- Listen to all your favorite podcasts -- millions of episodes are available
- Stream, bookmark, or download podcasts to listen offline
- Set the sleep timer before bed

Discover Podcasts:
- See what podcasts your friends are listening to
- View our podcast charts by category including true crime, sports, news, ESL & more
- Check out the “everyone feed” to see what people world-wide are listening to

Join Groups:

- Hundreds of groups already exist, by topic, show, geography, etc.
- Create a private group with friends -- like a book club for podcasts

In The News:

Fast Company Magazine – “As the number of podcasts explodes, Goodpods is building a social network to help users find which podcast episodes are actually worth listening to. The real innovation is in the podcast recommendation engine, which has been carefully designed to avoid the ideological echo chambers that plague other social platforms and podcast players. One of the 10 most innovative companies of 2021!”

Inc. Magazine – “Goodpods is a free podcast app that co-founder JJ Ramberg defines as a mix between Goodreads and Instagram. The app has garnered the attention of celebrities as users including Kim Kardashian, Alyssa Milano, Simon Sinek, Katie Couric and Malcolm Gladwell.” – “Los Angeles-based Goodpods launched its free podcast app with the hopes of answering the question "What podcast should I listen to?" "Rotten Tomatoes does it for movies. Yelp does it for restaurants, Goodreads did it for books," said Goodpods co-founder, Ken Ramberg. "There was no discovery platform for podcasts."

Happy listening! – The Goodpods Team
