How to Share Podcasts

Keep the discussion going after the podcast is done


Did you just listen to a podcast series or episode that needs to be shared with the world?

Repod makes it easy to share podcasts with anyone. This guide will detail all the ways you can share.

Share inside the community

Share podcasts with the Repod community or send to specific users on the app.

  • Post to the community (Feed) - A comment on an episode will be sent to the Feed and appears in both the Global and in your following's Following tab

  • Share with specific users (Share Within) - Share an episode and an optional comment to any user on the app by searching for their username.

Share outside the community

You can share a link to any episode, show, playlist, or profile to anyone outside of Repod. We have plans to build a new web app that syncs with the app so you can continue to listen on your desktop and other devices.

  • Link Copy - Copy a special link and share with anyone anywhere: text, Slack, Twitter, Instagram, or however else you share

How do I post a comment to the Feed?

Find/search for the episode under Explore. Once you find the episode you were looking for tap "Add Comment" on the episode, that comment will then be sent to the feed. See a video of how to post a comment to the feed

If you can't find the show/episode then we need to add the show to Repod. If the podcast(s) is missing, please email us and we'll add them for you.
