RedCircle

RedCircle is a podcasting host which allows users to host and distribute their podcasts. The platform gives users unlimited uploads and storage, as well as allows them to share content on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, YouTube and many other directories. Users can also check the platform’s built-in analytics to track and increase their audience. Podcast recordings need to be in the mp3 or mp4 format and cannot be larger than 200MB. The creator can upload a special image for each recording or leave it without, in which case the default image of the sharing platform is used. Creators can also choose titles, write short summaries and choose publishing dates.

Evaluation: RedCircle is a good platform for teachers and students as it is easy to use and gives them a free option to express their creativity in any language. The users also get an email from the platform through which their listeners can contact them. Another great feature of the platform is that it finds users advertisers and helps them earn money with it, although the platform keeps 30% of the revenue. Dynamic insertion allows users to add advertisements to older episodes as well.

Cost: free with registration
