Introducing: ZCast

ZCast is a new way to podcast. Whether you’re creating your own or just listening in, there is something for everyone. Starting your own podcast is easy. Simply choose a topic and you’re ready to broadcast. Or if you prefer, you can schedule a cast for a later date. You can even invite people from your social network to cast with you, and group-cast to your collective followers.

If you prefer just to listen, ZCast displays all live and upcoming casts, making it easy for you to enjoy what’s happening at the moment or subscribe and listen later. As a listener you can chat with the speakers and other listeners, providing commentary in real time. You can also like and share the cast with friends.

What’s so great about ZCast?

Podcasts are getting very famous these days and the new feature of interacting with other subscribers is exciting and one to look out for. The app is accessible and choosing the topics of interest is not difficult at all.
