When browsing the Apple Podcasts app, you may have noticed the occasional podcast where the Hosts & Guests are shown along with other show information.

An example of Apple Podcasts showing Host & Guest information.

ZenCast allows you to enter Host & Guest information for your podcasts. At this time, this information is published only to your show's ZenCast website, and not out to your RSS feed and other listening platforms like Spotify, Apple Podcasts, etc.

The reason for this is that at the moment, there's not much support or standardized use for this information on listening platforms. As this becomes a more popular and standardized feature, we'll look to add this information to the RSS feed too.

Apple's Host & Guest information is based on their own internal system and is totally separate from Host & Guest information on ZenCast. 

For now, Apple is enabling this feature for "select shows" and they say "more shows are routinely added". To find out more about this feature on Apple Podcasts head to their information page

If you have more questions let us know in the live chat bubble and we'll be happy to help.
