A fresh look for a fan-favorite podcast network
Wherever You Listen
When I made a list of design podcasts back in 2017, it amazed me how many podcast sites were lacking basic, but important details. Many lacked show notes. Some gave only sparse info on hosts, episode summaries were missing, or a brief description of the show itself might be lacking. Oddest of all were the podcasts with sites that had no links to subscribe easily.
There were so many obvious issues (particularly for design-related podcasts) that I started writing a post specifically on the basic requirements of a good podcast site. That post is still in the Drafts folder for now, but all that thinking paid off when I found myself with this opportunity.
Because the majority of podcast listening starts on mobile devices, I knew the site absolutely had to be responsive. With that in mind, I started by designing in the browser. And with mobile as a primary consideration, I also opted to design both dark and light modes for the site to take advantage of modern media queries. The result was a site that works no matter what device the listener uses and what environment they prefer.
