FAQs

Why contribute to podcast creators?

  • You’re investing in future episodes from the people you enjoy listening to.
  • Be part of what we’re building for listener and creators. This is the first iteration.

Is this a new podcast app?

  • No. Listen where you listen now. Lenny is a web app that connects the diverse podcast ecosystem but with a different function to a podcast player app.

Prefer ads?

  • Most podcasts don’t have the option to make money from ads. If the shows you listen to run ads then they’re doing better than the rest.
  • Lenny helps you support your favourite podcasts who can’t make revenue form ads.

What do I get for contributing?

  • Now, appreciation from the creators and us. You’re an early adopter and we haven’t turned on all the features yet.
