Eli Budelli, Head of Apps at Automattic:
As part of Automattic, Pocket Casts will continue to provide you with the features needed to enjoy your favorite podcasts (or find something new). We will explore building deep integrations with WordPress.com and Pocket Casts, making it easier to distribute and listen to podcasts. We’re thrilled that we can continue to give our users a multitude of ways to tell and engage with stories that matter.
Co-founders Russell Ivanovic and Philip Simpson will continue to lead Pocket Casts as part of Automattic.
I’m very high on the future of podcasting. And I’m incredibly excited to see Automattic becoming a bigger part of that.
