How Does Private Podcasting Work?
All you need to do is add your individual Private Subscribers by their name and email address, and we take care of the rest.
Your new Private Subscribers will receive an email on your behalf inviting them to your private podcast. They subscribe with a unique RSS feed URL to their favorite podcasting app, and that’s it!
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Private Podcasting cost?
Castos’ Private Podcasting is included in all of our standard pricing plans. You’re allotted up to 100 private subscribers in our Starter plan, 250 in the Growth Plan, and 500 in the Pro plan. If you go over 500 Private Subscribers we simply bill you $50 per 500 additional Private Subscribers in your account.
Can I add the same person to multiple Private Podcasts?
Yes! The same individual email address can be added to as many Private Podcasts in your account as you’d like. That one unique private subscriber only counts once in terms of billing.
Can I charge for access to my Private Podcast?
Absolutely. With our direct integration with the popular membership platform MemberSpace you can easily set up paid tier access to your content, and tie that in directly with your Private Podcast in Castos.
Can I create a Public and a Private podcast in the same Castos account?
You bet! You’re always free to create as many podcasts in a single Castos account as you’d like. Make them Public or Private depending on the use case for that show.
Does Private Podcasting work with Seriously Simple Podcasting in WordPress?
Yes, it does. All you need to do is set up that new podcast in WordPress, and once that has synced over to Castos set the podcast as Private in your Castos dashboard. From there publish episodes to the Private Podcast and your Private Subscribers only will get that content.
