Podium has become Buzzsprout's go-to AI provider
Podium has become Buzzsprout's go-to AI service provider. Now, as a Buzzsprout customer, you can get the same power of Podium right inside Buzzsprout's interface.
Hey Podium fans! We’ve got a big announcement to make:
Podium is teaming up with one of the best and largest podcast hosts in the world: Buzzsprout. Podium will now be Buzzsprout’s de-facto AI service provider.
This innovative collaboration will lead to the launch of Cohost AI—a suite of tools aimed at significantly enhancing the podcasting experience for creators using the Buzzsprout platform.
With Cohost AI, Buzzsprout's customers will gain access to the same AI power you can get from Podium today, but right in Buzzsprout’s interface. Buzzsprout users will be able to auto-generate comprehensive show notes, easy-to-navigate chapters, title recommendations, transcripts, and more—making podcast production even more effortless and efficient, right inside their publishing workflow.
"When evaluating AI partners, Podium was the clear winner,” shared Alban Brooke, Head of Marketing at Buzzsprout. "Podium consistently delivers high-quality results, and we’re thrilled to work with them to seamlessly integrate AI into podcasters’ workflows."
By offering automatic transcript generation, Buzzsprout is opening up podcasts to a wider audience, including the deaf and hard-of-hearing community. And, after recording and editing, podcasters can spend anywhere from one to ten hours in post-production. Cohost AI (Podium under the hood) can reduce this to mere minutes upon uploading of an audio file. With Podium, podcasters can radically increase productivity, discoverability, and accessibility.
"We're really happy to partner with a company that is committed to empowering podcasters like we do and has been leading the industry as one of the best hosting platforms," added Paul Bloch, co-founder of Podium. "By integrating Podium’s AI, Buzzsprout is the first to release this kind of AI technology at scale to creators. Buzzsprout is helping their customers to focus on what they do best – creating compelling and exciting podcast content for their listeners."
The partnership symbolizes a shared commitment by Buzzsprout and Podium to make podcasting more inclusive, efficient, and engaging. The formal announcement of the integration of Podium’s AI tools into Buzzsprout's platform will be on June 6, 2023.
