There are so many platforms for podcasting these days and it can be difficult to keep up with the process of uploading your podcast on all of them. We automatically upload your podcasts on Spotify, Google Podcasts, TuneIn, PocketCasts and a lot of other platforms. However, some podcast platforms are still yet to be integrated onto the Hubhopper distribution system or requires a creator verification. Here are some the podcast platforms where Hubhopper is currently not automatically distributing to, and how you can manually distribute your podcast to these platforms.
