The leadership at PodcastOne is hopeful the roster of talented podcasters they’ve assembled will be worth paying for. Until now, running ads within podcasts was the primary way to make money at podcasting. PodcastOne is trying to add another revenue stream.
The subscription model is called PodcastOne Premium. All archived podcasts from Adam Carolla, Shaquille O’Neal, Steve Austin, and others will be moved behind a paywall. For $7.99 per month or $59.99 per year, listeners can have access to Podcast One’s archived podcasts. When a podcast is released it will be available for free for 60 days before listeners have to pay for it. Also, a series of Adam Carolla interviews will be made exclusively available and commercial-free for premium members. Carolla is also moving his entire premium collection to the PodcastOne platform, with new episodes weekly. Read more about the subscription model HERE
