Buzzsprout Subscriptions

Whether you're just getting started or have been podcasting for years, Buzzsprout Subscriptions provide a clear path to a listener-supported podcast.

You can set up a subscription and start by accepting recurring support from your listeners in less than 2 minutes. Then, once you're ready, you can start incentivizing more listeners to support the show with premium subscriber-only content.

Buzzsprout Subscriptions is available on all paid plans, so there's no need to set up another tool or manage multiple platforms.

Fighting back against email spam

Removing email address from RSS Feeds
Removing email address from RSS Feeds

Email spam has increasingly become an issue for podcasters. Spammers and bots routinely scrape RSS feeds to collect podcasters' email addresses and send them junk emails.

To help protect your privacy, Buzzsprout is removing email addresses from your RSS Feed so that shady marketers and bots cannot find your email address.

If you ever need to include your email in your feed, like when submitting to iHeart Radio, we’ve created a simple way to add an email address to your feed for 24 hours. This is enough time to verify you own the podcast without allowing the spammers and bots to grab your email address.

We hope this makes your email experience a bit nicer.

Buzzsprout Ads automatically finds mid-roll ad spots in your podcast episodes, and we've added additional controls over which mid-roll ad spots are used for Buzzsprout Ads.
You can disable ads for an entire episode or just remove a single mid-roll insertion point that you don't like. This is especially helpful if you're using Buzzsprout Ads, but have specific episodes you don't want to monetize.
