Can your podcast make money, after all? Pioneer Square Labs spinout Glow debuts tech platform for podcast memberships

It’s a common problem for podcasters: you’ve got a passionate, loyal audience, but at a time when it seems everyone is producing an audio show, your weekly musings haven’t exactly rocketed up the charts to attract an audience large enough to generate meaningful sponsor interest or ad revenue. But don’t give up: there might still be a way for your podcast to make money.

That’s the promise of a new Seattle-based company called Glow, the latest spinout from startup studio Pioneer Square Labs. Glow’s first product, which debuted Monday in public beta, is a technology platform designed to make it “simple and seamless” for podcasters to convert their most loyal listeners into members who pay recurring subscription fees for access to exclusive content, ad-free episodes or other perks, or even to simply support their favorite show.
