Starting and maintaining a podcast can be a daunting task. And plowing through the sheer volume of information available online can be exhausting and time-consuming. That’s why every podcaster should be subscribing to at least a couple of podcasting newsletters.
When you subscribe to these newsletters, you’ll receive the best information on podcasting delivered straight to your inbox. To save you even more time and energy, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite podcasting newsletters. Go subscribe to them now!
7 Podcasting Newsletters You Should Be Subscribed To:
Hot Pod is a weekly newsletter that’s delivered every Tuesday. It provides commentary on the podcast industry, as well as some insights on news and trends. You may not get actionable podcast tactics or advice, but this newsletter helps you keep a pulse on the industry as a whole.
Why we love this newsletter: Unlike any other newsletter on this list, Hot Pod offers a paid subscription called the Hot Pod Insider. The Insider comes out twice a week (typically on Thursdays and Fridays), delivers exclusive coverage on news developments, and provides a deeper follow-up to a specific topic from the week. The Hot Pod Insider is $7/month or $70/year.

Inside Podcasting is a daily newsletter (Monday-Friday) that describes its coverage as “everything you need to know about the resurgence of the spoken word.” It’s a subset of the larger newsletter group called simply “Inside” (where you can subscribe to newsletters on a variety of subjects). This newsletter provides a selection of original and curated content about podcast news, gear, etc. For example: a recent newsletter shared a study showing that you should remove the word “podcast” in your show title and publish episodes at 5 am on Tuesdays.
Why we love this newsletter: The aesthetic of Inside Podcasting is very minimalistic compared to other newsletters, making it easy to skim through quickly in the morning over a cup of coffee. Each story is summarized in a very short blip but provides links to further information throughout the short paragraph, allowing you to decide which stories you’d like to explore further.

The Podcast Host
The Podcast Host is primarily a blog and training/mentoring service that helps podcasters start a podcast or take their current podcast to the next level. But they also provide a newsletter that currently has 10,000+ members where they share updates for podcasters and a compilation of their blog content.
Why we love this newsletter: When you first sign up for this newsletter, you get their 20-part “How to Start a Podcast” series. So if you’re a podcaster at the very beginning of your podcasting journey, this is a great way to get information on starting your own podcast delivered straight to your inbox in easily-digestible portions.

Sara’s Podcast Newsletter
Sara’s Podcast Newsletter is delivered every other week. Each newsletter typically includes two sections. The first covers the latest news in podcasting, and the second lists out new podcasts to keep an eye on.
Why we love this newsletter: For each edition, the newsletter’s author Sara Weber handpicks a bunch of fun GIFs that she scatters throughout the newsletter. To put it simply, it’s just plain fun.
