Spotify tests out profile pages for podcast hosts

The feature, which rolls out today, would allow podcast talent to build pages for themselves in the way that musicians have always been able to on the platform. I’m told that testing is currently limited to a small pool of Gimlet hosts — including Alex Blumberg, Reply All’s PJ Vogt and Alex Goldman, and Science Vs’ Wendy Zukerman, among others — and that the company plans to open up the feature to third-party podcast creators in the near future.

Possibly a meaningful contribution towards greater podcast discovery on the platform. At the very least, the feature would elevate the individual host or creative team as a viable atomic unit of discovery, in addition to the podcast itself.
