With growing demand for media content, the importance of podcasting is increasing and a lot of media channels are jumping into the act.

The themes I have mentioned below only works for the self-hosted version of WordPress which means you will require your own WordPress hosting. For this, I recommend SiteGround to host your site for as little as $3.95 you get FREE SSL, domain, and support.

If you have that cover skip this step and check out our roundup below.

It has also opened a channel for those who were never comfortable with creating text and video content. So, if you’re eager to make the most out of this opportunity, all you need is some hardware, technical knowledge of audio equipment and a website to share those podcast content.

When it comes to other technical aspects, you can either learn those or hire someone professional but the website part can be taken care of by WordPress and a dedicated theme.
