Apply to be Featured

Castbox values your work. In an effort to help your podcast reach a wider audience on Castbox, we provide the opportunities to apply to be featured on Castbox in the banner or Editors' Picks on the homepage. We will review the applications regularly and feature qualified podcasts. 
Please note that we’d love to accept every show, but only a small portion have the audience size, content quality and growth potential that fit our current strategic goals. Due to the volume of applications we receive you will only hear from us if your show fits these criteria. 
If your show is qualified, we will contact you within 1-2 weeks. It might take longer if there is a holiday. 
For qualified shows, we can feature them for a week for once. For each applicant, you can only apply for banner promotion once every two months. 
Due to limited resources, effective from April 25th, 2023, our team no longer manually review banners and Editors' Picks for the Iranian region. Instead, an algorithm will recommend relevant podcasts directly. As a result, we NO LONGER accept manual feature requests from our Iranian podcasters.

Prerequisites (for first-time applicants)

Applications that don't meet the first three standards won't be reviewed.
