The easiest way to start, the best place to grow.

Shortwave is more than just a hosting platform, it's the best place to build your podcast, grow your audience, and monetize your entire catalog of episodes with dynamic content and ads.

Browser Clip Stitching

Make your show.
Then make it again.

Manage your shows, seasons, episodes, and clips all visually in the browser. Upload an entire episode, or separate clips for your preroll, intro, content, ads, and outro.

Then reuse, remix, and remake them. We handle combining the clips and uploading them as one streamable file for your audience.

Learn more about about clip stitching.

On-the-fly Ad Updates

Monetize your episodes.

Your show shouldn't be a time capsule. Upload the audio of your show and your ads separately. Then, swap them out when you want. Continue to monetize older episodes while you're building your audience.

HD Audio

The highest audio quality available.

Every time we process your show's audio, we create a 192kb/sec MP3 - the highest bitrate of any podcast platform. So your show sounds as great as it did when you recorded it.

Analytics Dashboard

Analyze, optimize, grow.

Get smarter analytics around who is listening to your episodes, and how. Dive deep into per-episode metrics, and get actionable insights from audience trends across your show's entire catalog.

Unlimited downloads.

We want you to make as much as possible. With every subscription, we offer unlimited cloud storage for your shows, and unlimited streaming from your listeners. No need to worry about hitting bandwidth caps.

Switching from another platform?
