    Pros: 

    Beautiful design and interface. A platform that aims to support creators.

    Cons: 

    None!

    Jijo and his team are amazing executers- I'm so excited to see this launch and I can't believe how impressive a product they have delivered after only a few months of iteration. Really looking forward to seeing this product evolve over time with that mission in mind!

    Beautiful UI

    Cons: 

    None.

    I see Jijo as a person similar to Steve Jobs. Because he never compromised quality and design in his products. Whether it be Whatruns or Buyme a coffe or Brew , all these proucts are excellent in design.Design is the No.1 priority while I look in new products , then performance. Thanks for making such wonderful products. Kudos to the entire team.

Thanks for hunting, @katmanalac! Hey everyone! Brew.com is a podcast app that lets creators publish exclusive content and monetize. Users get access to exclusive content + all the free podcasts that’s available elsewhere - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/... We launched yesterday with 3 creators announcing their shows exclusively on Brew. Thanks, and let us know what you think about the app! :)

Looks like you've narrowed Brew's focus a ton since we last spoke, @jijosunny. Why did you choose to prioritize podcast creators vs. something else?

@rrhoover Yes, we wanted to make supporting creators mainstream and create a marketplace that incentivizes creators. Turns out a generic-content app won't cut it. It's just bad UX. We love podcasts as a medium and have been following its growth. Interestingly, it's the least monetized content type (<500M last year, mostly ads), yet the most monetizable (nearly half of top 25 creators on Patreon are podcasters). Adding to the fact that podcast listeners are deeply engaging audience and tend to have a high net worth. Looks like there's a lot of untapped value here. What do you think?

Hey @jijosunny, could you expand a bit on how you're dividing money between creators? Is it based on listen time? And what about creators who haven't signed up for Brew; can they retroactively claim their share if people listen to their show in the app? Thanks!

@jijosunny @layon_overwhale I love the idea of compensating creators more from their work! I would love to hear more about this — your FAQ implies that the $4.99/mo goes to *all* creators, not just Brew Originals. As a podcaster I have a few questions: - If someone listens to my show on your app, are you collecting money for me? - Do I have to go through a process to "claim" my earnings? If not, how do I get the money? - If so, what happens to podcasts that don't go through that process? - If I upload something exclusive to Brew, can I also e.g. publish it on my private Patreon feed? Thanks! Always glad to see more folks trying new angles on helping creators.

@layon_overwhale @dzohrob Hey Leon, it is currently based on unique listens (30 seconds+ retention to count as a valid listen), but we have some ideas to make it more meaningful and fair. Currently we see a range of 5-10 cents per listen ($50-$100 CPM). Will talk more about it late this month when we have some concrete data. We are very transparent with our business model in our creator dashboard. Please sign up as a creator (requires verification from our end, won't take more than 48 hours) to get access to the dashboard. Dave, first off, great to connect - we found your take on the podcasting space very insightful. - We are not atm. Brew is only collecting money on behalf of the creators who are on Brew. This might change in the future but we have to work on the dynamics then. As of today, almost all of the paid subscribers are referred by the creators on Brew. We don't promote the app. Supply side (creators) drives the demand side (fans/paid subscribers). - Yes, the process is very straightforward and open to all creators. Creators get full access to the listening stats and revenues. - This process is to verify the ownership of existing podcasts. It is not an approval process. Brew will always remain open to all creators, regardless of the audience size or content. - Yes, you can. It is up to the creators to determine the exclusivity of their show on Brew. Exclusivity helps drive more of your fans to Brew and help generate more income. However, this is very much your call. We've been talking to some established creators and they were more interested in publishing their extras and uncut on Brew (for their superfans) and keep doing what they do. At the end of the day, Brew is a new monetization platform for creators - it is up to them to decide what value they should provide to drive their fans to Brew. Hope this answered your questions. I've created an impromptu FAQ doc here and will add more Qs to it as I come across - https://www.notion.so/brewapp/Br...

Love the concept of both paying creators and charging a very reasonable price for consumers. To ensure high quality media content it's extremely important to enable publishers and creators to make a living of it. 🙌 Can't wait for the Android app to come!
