Questions?

Does Glow require listeners to download a new app?

No. Listeners can pay you and listen to premium content wherever they like to listen. Glow works with major podcast players, including Apple Podcasts, Overcast, and Pocket Casts.

Can someone share my private feed?

They can, but they’d have to try really hard. We monitor for feed piracy to make sure your private content doesn't get into the hands of people who didn't pay for it.

I’m interested, but don’t know where to start.

Start here. Once you create an account, someone from our team will reach out to you to answer questions and help you brainstorm your membership.

More FAQs

Created by and for podcasters.

Glow was born out of our CEO’s dream to build a business out of her local news podcast.

In 2017, our CEO Amira created Backyard Cambridge, a podcast about the City Council election in her then-home, Cambridge, Massachusetts. She interviewed the candidates, produced the episodes, and built a small audience. When fans told her she wanted more, she developed a business plan for how to turn Backyard Cambridge into a subscription-based local news service. She took the plunge and started building a local news startup, but then ran into a problem: she didn’t have an easy way for her listeners to pay her for the content.

She had the content, she had the audience, she had the plan. But, she didn’t have the tools to bring her dream to life.

Our mission is to create a world where content realizes its value.
