We've used Simplecast for quite a few years to host multiple podcasts. Not a single complaint and the whole team is one of the best in the industry.​

Pros:

Recasts, amazing analytics and just downright easy to use

Cons:

Not a single thing I'd change

I had just signed up when they started rolling out their current V2 and the evolution of one to the next was impressive. I can see that they still have tons of things on their roadmap so I'm excited to find out what's coming in the next few months.

Pros:

The analytics provided for each show/episode are precise, and easy to analyze with their graphical interface.

Cons:

I would like to be able to save certain presets that repeat on every episode.

I've been using Transistor for the past year and I like it, no real problems, but I'd just like my website to look nicer. With this update, Simplecast seem to be offering a lot more features, for less money. I love Transistor & I'll probably still host one of my podcasts there. However, I think I am going to switch my main pod over to Simplecast.

Pros:

Lovely interface, really good site builder and feature set

Cons:

Could do with upload presets

@jmckinven If you mean what I *think* you mean, regarding upload presets, we have Episode Templates in development - allowing you to quickly pre-populate much of your episodes' details, saving time in the publishing workflow. LMK if this is something different, I'd love to hear your feedback!
