1. Soundcast by themeXxX
Soundcast is an attractive and modern WordPress theme for podcasts.
It includes a built-in audio player visitors can use to listen to your podcasts on your site. It also supports video embeds and includes a simple SoundCloud integration.
Soundcast also includes a good variety layouts, so you’ll have no problem displaying any page you could want, such as an “About” page or episode gallery.
- Audio player
- Visual Composer
- Essential Grid
- Google Fonts
- Powerful Admin Panel
- Sidebar positions
- Left sidebar
- Right sidebar
- No sidebar
- Page Loader
2. Soundbyte by ProgressionStudios
Soundbyte is a clean and bold theme for podcasting. While the colors are entirely customizable, the default use of purple and green is quite striking.
The Soundbyte theme is full of nice touches. It has an audio/video player, of course, but it also allows for seasons and displays the show lengths throughout the design.
The podcast gallery page is a bit busy, but the podcast page itself is well-designed and focused. I like the special show notes section at the bottom of the page as well.
- Audio/video player
- Page builder
- Unlimited colors
- Powerful theme options
- One click demo install
- SEO best practices
3. Podcaster by Themestation
Podcaster has a more minimalist look than the previous two themes. Its design as a podcasting theme isn’t quite so pronounced, but it still has the audio player integration a good podcasting theme needs.
The podcasting page itself is quite nice and might lead to more plays than other themes simply because it’s so clear and easy to use. Podcaster also boasts special support for the BluBrry PowerPress and Seriously Simple Podcasting plugins.
While I’d love to see more pages designed around the podcasts in this theme, the podcast archive page does a good job and looks clean and easy to use.
- Audio/video player
- Fully responsive
- Theme options
- Post format support
- Blubrry PowerPress integration
- Seriously Simple Podcasting integration
4. Chords by cssignitervip
Chords has a great unique look. While it might better suit a music/band site, its design and feature set is appropriate for a podcast as well.
Chords includes many templates including multiple types of galleries for listing media, producers, and albums. These could be easily adapted to podcast episodes, podcasters, and shows/seasons.
- Unique widget system
- Six custom post types
- Custom audio player
- Discography management
- Events management
- Media management
- WooCommerce support
5. Remix by Codevz
Remix is another music theme that is also a good fit for a podcast.
Unlike some of the other themes, Remix does a great job of putting audio at the forefront of the design. You can feature the audio player on most page templates, and it supports playlists which let visitors easily play through a series of episodes.
- Responsive layouts
- Two types of audio players
- Drag-and-drop page builder
- Live Customizer
- Events management
- Continuous music player
