About Castos

Castos was formed in 2017 around the Seriously Simple Podcasting plugin, a popular way of self-hosting podcasts. Castos added analytics, hosting, and an embeddable media player, and now provides automated transcription, a simple website, and allows content to be republished to YouTube.

On top of this, the company also provides podcast editing services.

About RSS.com

RSS.com bills itself as an easy way to upload and manage podcasts. The service offers one-click submission to several podcast directories, and partners with Podcorn to provide customers with access to sponsorship opportunities.

Chief among the benefits for new podcasters with only one show is there is essentially one price to pay, forever. Their “all-in-one” plan offers unlimited downloads, but customers pay per podcast, and there isn’t a way to manage multiple podcasts under the same account.
