About PodQueue

A headshot of Ryan Baumann

PodQueue was started in 2019 by me, Ryan Baumann, a Rails developer with over a decade of experience. PodQueue is a completely self-funded, bootstrapped, and solo-developed service. I built PodQueue to address my own frustrations with nothing else like it already existing—I’m a long-time user of Instapaper, and wanted something that was just as easy and convenient for audio as Instapaper and Pocket are for text.

Charging for PodQueue allows me to cover hosting, support, and development costs while respecting your privacy.
