Audible has dominated the industry of audiobooks and podcasts for more than two decades. However, being a member-exclusive platform, many would argue that the ads are unnecessary for it to keep advancing and improving.
Podcasts tell a story, and its flow and to some degree its point are somewhat lost on the listeners when interrupted by unrelated advertisements. DollarCasts, a Canadian brand, has launched an alternative platform where people could enjoy quality podcasts without ads, but more importantly, without having to pay budget-whittling monthly membership fees.
As the brand states, DollarCasts “provides accessible, affordable, ad-free audio content. We curate high-quality fuel for your journey whether you’re looking to grow your career, get healthier, learn a new language, dive into an audio series, or just need a little humor to lighten your day.”
The best podcasts are usually pricier, but at DollarCasts, even the best-established series can be accessed for under $7.00. DollarCasts points out that the content on its platform starts at one dollar. The replay value of DollarCast podcasts and audiobooks is tremendous, as the content remains open and accessible after it is purchased, unlike Audible content which is tied to monthly memberships.
DollarCasts is an eclectic platform based on quality audio content. The brand aims to offer instantly accessible content at a fraction of the price in addition to offering a warm, user-friendly platform.
“We exist to make high-quality audio content accessible to everyone. We are equally dedicated to giving creators of high-quality audio content a straightforward path to being compensated for the pay-worthy content that they produce.”
People who wish to start jogging or study Spanish can find several podcast recommendations on DollarCasts, in addition to learning more about emotional eating triggers and recipes, core concepts of marketing, and the fundamentals of communication.
