Do you have a trial?
All plans come with a 30-day worry-free trial.
If you're unsatisfied for any reason, just cancel your plan before the end of your first month and you won't be charged.
What if I don't have a podcast?
If you don't have a podcast, then you can upload any upload audio file (MP3, M4A, FLAC, or WAV) to your Dial-a-Podcast account and your callers will be able to listen to that. Just select Audio File instead of Podcast Feed.
To upload faster, and because the audio will be reduced to telephone-level quality anyway, we suggest you export audio files as:
- Channels: 1 (mono)
- Sample rate: < 16000 Hz
- Quality: < 64 kbps
What number do people call to listen to my podcast?
If you have added a dedicated local or toll-free number, your callers will dial that number and can instantly start listening to your podcast (they don't need to type in the six-digit code).
They can also call any number of our global call-in numbers, which may be helpful if they live in another country.
Can I use Dial-a-Podcast in other countries?
Yes! Pricing is all the same for the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and most of Europe. Go ahead and sign up and then use any of the global call-in numbers. If you don't see a number for your country, please contact us and we'll add one.
Can I have a dedicated number?
Yes, your first local number is included for free. You can also add one or more local or toll-free numbers.
Once you signup, you'll be able to add a number from your management page.
We're currently only offering US and Canadian dedicated numbers. However, we will be adding an option for dedicated UK and Australian numbers soon. (But if you're interested now, contact us and we can get that setup for you)
Do you have a 1-800 or toll-free dial-in number?
Uou can add a dedicated toll-free number for an additional small monthly fee plus an additional per-minute surcharge for all calls to the toll-free number.
What if none of your global call-in numbers is a local call for my organization or our callers?
Not to worry. Please contact us and we can get a phone number with a local area code pronto, likely at no additional cost to you!
Can I have more than one episode of a podcast available?
It's something we're considering. If you're interested, contact us so we can discuss your use case.
Can I integrate with my existing PBX/IVR so listeners can call my main phone number and access the podcast though our menu?
Yes, you have two options: you can either forward to a dedicated phone number or you can use a SIP URI for your podcast, which is:
xxxxxx is the six digit code for your podcast.
If you need help setting it up, please contact us and we'd be glad to help!

What is a podcast feed?
