More on Headliner

Today, Headliner is most famous for our audiogram tool – Make by Headliner. But, Headliner does so much more than “just” audiograms. Today, Headliner boasts a comprehensive tool kit to help podcasters grow their audience.

With Headliner, podcasters can edit, transcribe, promote, advertise, and connect their podcast across the web.

How we started

Did you know Headliner actually came to be all because of user feedback?

“Headliner was built with feedback from the podcasting community, and our recent products have all been focused on helping podcasts grow, whether through organic or paid means”

Oliver Wellington, COO & Co-Founder

In 2015, our team released a social audio app called Sparemin. Sparemin allowed people to connect, record 5-minute interviews, and then share them. While the app did not take off, there was one little feature we found many people liked—audiograms.

“We’ve been working ​on ​this ​since ​2018, ​and ​our ​main ​mission ​is ​to ​connect ​podcasts ​with ​their ​next ​great ​listener… We’re ​basically ​just ​building ​all ​the ​tools ​you ​need ​to ​get ​your ​podcast ​on ​the ​web ​and ​discoverable ​by ​people.”

Oliver Wellington, COO & Co-Founder

Since then, we’ve been growing and adapting our company in many different ways. One thing that has always remained constant-Headliner helps podcasters go from audio to audience.

“Headliner just continues to grow, which is amazing. Thinking about how we started, it is awesome to see how far these simple yet powerful assets have taken us. We’ve iterated and added more tools and ways for podcasters to grow their audience, like Disco. Today, we help millions of people discover podcasts every month! It is a very exciting space to be in and incredibly rewarding helping people get to amazing content they likely wouldn’t have otherwise!”

Neil Mody, CEO & Co-Founder

A Bright Future

Headliner has changed a lot over the past six years. As a company, we’ve evolved from “just audiograms” to offering a comprehensive toolkit for podmotion (podcast + promotion). Beyond audiograms, podcasters can transcribe, create AI-generated assets, caption videos, connect their podcast to blogs or websites, dabble in paid podcast promotion, and so much more! (Although we definitely still love our audiograms!)

While we’ve grown, one thing has remained constant—Headliner is for podcasters. Our mission is to help grow podcasting in an easy, friendly way.
