Hey Product Hunt, I'm Marcus, the founder of Bitcast.fm and I’m super excited to introduce you to Bitcast 1.0. Bitcast.fm is the social podcast platform that we always wanted - a platform that let's you discover and share the best 'bits' of podcasts seamlessly as you hear them. Rather selfishly, we also decided to design and launch it with our favorite tech podcasts in mind. The decision to build a web app first (instead of native) is to stay agile while we find the right product-everything-fit. Full intentions to build native soon. With that in mind, this version is minimal and maximal where it matters. We tried really hard to make the most important features function well but it still has some rough edges, don't be afraid to tell us about them! Upcoming Features: - Editing and deleting Bits / comments - Sub-comments and upvotes - Following podcasters and friends. - Search and subscribe - PWA (waiting for upcoming IOS update) - Private tagging and messaging. - Alternate Reddit style feed. Boosting with eth. - Topbits, topics, playlists. - Secret sauce, *cough* discussions. Thank you to everyone who previously signed up to the waiting list and cheers @bentossell for hunting! Feel free to reach out! marcus(@)bitcast.fm Best, Marcus_Sonoma

This sure looks promising. It's about time for the next wave of podcasting services, especially the ones that adds a social layer and messaging to some of the already exciting audio content available out there.

@binoyxj wow thanks Binoy. So glad you see value in what we're building. Yeah definitely a lot of buzz in the industry. We think that podcasts are still pretty archaic in the way they're delivered ie one play button and that's it. Out of curiosity, do you think clapping (bookmarking) or tagging is a more enticing feature for you?
