TL;DR: To celebrate our latest release, for a limited time, we're offering free accounts with 3GB of storage at open.audio if you want to host your podcast or audio content on a decentralized, ad-free, open platform.

Hi there, fellow podcasters!
Over the past 6 months, we've worked really hard to make it possible to publish and host podcasts on Funkwhale, and we're now confident enough to communicate more widely about it.
To celebrate this, we're opening subscriptions for a couple of weeks at https://open.audio. Any account created in this period will get 3GB of storage to publish podcast episodes!
To avoid abuse and ensure the best quality of service, we'll review registrations manually, typically in a few hours so don't panic if there is a small delay before you get your confirmation.
A couple features that you may like:
- Other users can subscribe to podcasts if they have an account on any Funkwhale pod, and anonymously, as we produce a RSS feed compatible with existing podcasting applications.
- Each podcast episode published on Funkwhale gets a dedicated page, and can have a description and cover image. People can visit this page to listen to your episode, without logging-in.
- It's also possible to embed your channel or episodes on your own website, through an iframe-based player
We'd love to hear what you think about it, and of course, let us know if you have any questions! You can contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
