About CoHost

Fatima Zaidi, founder and CEO of Quill, felt that podcast hosting was still an unsolved problem, so created CoHost to try and scratch an itch she feels podcasters are still having.

The service boasts automated transcripts, a customisable website, download and link tracking, and a highly customisable and attractive embeddable player.

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.
