What the ‌Apple Podcasts‌ webpage embed looks like

As TechCrunch points out, this tool will let creators, marketers, and podcast fans create embed codes for any of the podcasts that are available on the Podcasts service.

The Podcasts Marketing Tools website can be used to search for any podcast, with the results providing embed code. On a Preview page for either a show or an individual episode, there's a new embed button under the "Share" icon that can be used to generate code.

The web player allows podcasts to start playing right on the website where it is embedded, and it also provides an option to open the Podcasts app on iOS, iPadOS, or macOS. The ‌Apple Podcasts‌ web embed is available to everyone as of now.

I hope Apple can figure out how to help podcasters monetize their work. Believe me I think everyone should get paid for their work.

I'm a longtime Spotify subscriber, but the way they are trying to turn podcasts into a service you need to pay for seems like it would hurt innovation and only help the Joe Rogans of the podcasting world. it just rubs me the wrong way. Also they're incessant complaining while they themselves pay artists pennies on the dollar isn't doing them any favors ?

I find it odd that Appleinsider would use This American Life as an example of the embed given the fact this podcast released an irresponsible and sensational hit-piece on Foxconn (and indirectly Apple) in 2012. TAL and Ira Glass later recanted the podcast after realizing their "fact checking" wasn't thorough. Nevertheless they released the original piece regardless of their lack of journalistic standards. I can only suspect they were after the slew of new listeners that a sexy antii-Apple story would bring. In any event, I decided to never listen to TAL again given their desire to publish work that was not only sensational, but ultimately flat out untruthful. I encourage Appleinsider to reconsider any indirect promotion of that podcast.
Okay...but this is MacRumors. ?

I feel like Patreon is filling that gap for all content creators. Plenty of shows I listen to have free ad based episodes and then offer Premium RSS streams, ad free, to their Patreon subs along with Patreon exclusive shows and episodes.
