Writer Office Hours: Podcasts 📅

Have questions about publishing, growing, or going paid with your podcast on Substack?

The same way we made it simple to start a paid newsletter, we’re making it just as easy to author a paid, subscription-based podcast on Substack.

Today we are joined by special guests:

  • Substack CEO and co-founder, Chris Best.

  • Virginia Sole-Smith, host of podcast Burnt Toast, will share her experience and insights around podcasting on Substack.

  • The technical team building Substack podcasting and audio tools.

  • Our writer development team who are our experts on how to launch a Substack podcast.

Have questions about podcasting on Substack? Post in the thread and our team will be answering questions and sharing insights today from 10 a.m.–11 a.m. PST / 1 p.m.–2 p.m. EST. Got another burning question? The rest of the Substack team and fellow writers are also here for you to answer general questions.
