Fast-growing, award-winning podcast player featured by Fast Company, Inc Magazine, Dot.la and more.
Fast Company Magazine - As the number of podcasts explodes, Goodpods is building a social network to help users find which are actually worth listening to. The real innovation is in the recommendation engine, which has been carefully designed to avoid the ideological echo chambers that plague other social platforms.
Dot.la - Los Angeles-based Goodpods launched with the hopes of answering the question "What podcast should I listen to?" "Rotten Tomatoes does it for movies. Yelp does it for restaurants, Goodreads did it for books," said Goodpods co-founder, Ken Ramberg. "There was no discovery platform for good podcasts."
Inc. Magazine – Goodpods is a podcast-centric social network that co-founder JJ Ramberg defines as a mix between Goodreads and Instagram. The app has garnered the attention of celebrities as users including Kim Kardashian West, Simon Sinek, Katie Couric and Malcolm Gladwell.

Ratings and Reviews
I was never a podcast listener. After I began traveling heavily for work I quickly tired of both the radio and my music playlists. So, I decided to look at podcasts. Frankly, I really didn’t know what they were. My impression was they were essentially books on tape, which is great but I didn’t need more of those. Also, I didn’t know where to find a podcast, never mind a podcast that might be of interest, or how to play it. Enter Goodpods! This app is awesome. It’s my Instagram or Twitter feed for podcasts. It curates by series and episodes (which is really helpful), and allows me to cut through having too many choices and find what I want quickly.
Finally, I won’t be scrambling to find a good podcast at the last minute! I’m an avid podcasts listener but have fallen into ruts with the same few every time. I try to remember recommendations from friends but always forget when I’m about to drive or go for a walk. Goodpods lets me bookmark a recommended podcast so I *always* have one ready. And Goodpods helped me discover new, cool podcasts via friends, writers, artists, chefs, comedians, and curmudgeons I enjoy. Such a relief.
Love this app...
As a podcast lover, but a bit of a novice, I was stuck in a rut of listening to the same shows again and again...until I found Goodpods. I have discovered so many new interesting podcasts that I would never have found without this app. It is fun, easy to use and I love seeing what my friends are listening to. I highly recommend this app.
