Getting a feeling for podcasting

Getting a feeling for podcasting

I am about to launch my own podcast, but have little experience with podcasting.

Does a mobile user need a podcasting app? If so, what are the popular one for the iPhone?

I assume I could download it and see how various podcasts are displayed and accessed within the app. This would be very educational for me.

No requirement for an App. Actually using some custom App for this may decrease your reach.

Instead, just use something like WordPress + PowerPress to syndicate your .mp3 files across various indexes, like iTunes.

I have a WP site but was told that it wold take 12-16 hours to integrate a podcast theme. I just want to start distributing audio through the big channels, like iTunes, as quickly as possible.

Is PowerPress a theme? How much effort to upgrade to use that plug-in?
David FavorLinux/LXD/WordPress/Hosting SavantCommented:
You don't really require a Podcast theme.

Just check out PowerPress.

I tend to use GeneratePress (theme) + Elementor or Beaver (Page Builders) + the RibbonLite theme works great for Podcasts too.
