On Friday, Automattic announces that Pocket Casts, a comprehensive podcast listening app that has been around for years, will join the Parent Company of WordPress.
As part of Automattic, Pocket Casts will continue to provide you with the necessary features to enjoy your favorite podcasts (or find something new). We’ll explore creating deep integrations with WordPress.com and Pocket Casts, making it easier to distribute and listen to podcasts. We are thrilled to be able to continue to offer our users a multitude of ways to tell and interact with stories that matter.
It seems that Pocket Casts will continue to operate independently under Automattic. Co-founders Russell Ivanovic and Philip Simpson will continue to lead Pocket Casts.
