Standout Features:

  • Informative and patriotic
  • Episode gallery in blocks
  • A special selection of episodes

Congressional Dish is another one of the best podcast websites. Developed by Podcast Branding, the show’s patriotism and empowering views are evident across the layout.

Taking cues from the American flag, the Stars and Stripes are the main visual element of the design. The fixed navbar is placed below the hero section and becomes a fixed bar as you scroll down the page. The sticky navigation bar also features the “Most Valuable Episodes,” a tab that takes you to a special selection of episodes hand-picked by the producers. It’s followed by introductory content describing the podcast content and platforms where it is available.

After the latest episode highlight, you can browse a gallery of past episodes below. Each block features an image, date of publishing, and a button that takes you to the full page.

Standout Features:

  • A dark atmosphere
  • Gothic with a touch of folk
  • An intriguing "About" section

Candela Granate’s Dead Serious True Crime Podcast website design is as beautiful as it is gloomy.

Following the podcast’s theme, the design features a dark, sinister atmosphere that hints at the horrific stories told through a bold typeface and a muted color palette. The visuals are gothic, but they also contain subtle folk motifs. Each episode has a featured photo, usually a barren tree, to keep up with the theme.

The “About” section adds another layer to the mystery as the author prefers to remain unknown to the listeners. To reflect the author’s mysterious persona, the text describing it has a photo of a person covered in a white sheet.

8. LuAnn Nigara by Glory & Brand

Standout Features:

  • Well-streamlined landing page
  • Intriguing, behind-the-scenes video
  • Creative fixed navbar

Professional and aesthetic, LuAnn Nigara’s online platform is another great podcast website design.

Glory & Brand did a wonderful job of telling you everything you need to know, all interconnected through a communicative landing page. The hero section draws attention to the fresh info on the next big event with the author as a keynote speaker, followed by subtle mentions of big brands acknowledging Nigara’s expertise.

The hero section is followed by three round counters that speak about that success, reinforced with a short introductory text about her career. Immediately after that, we gain access to a more human, personal side of the author provided through an intriguing video showing us what happens behind the scenes.

Finally, as you roam and explore the landing (or any other) page, you can always jump to a different page as there’s a big fixed navbar following you around. Its background is decorated with a beautiful gradient built out of multiple green hues and hovering over any section triggers a drop-down feature that instantly lets you get to a precise address.

9. Digital Pathology Place by Gillen Design

Standout Features:

  • Stylish, modern episode gallery
  • Substantial information about each episode
  • Multiple media options

Gillen Design’s web design for Digital Pathology Place is a user-oriented platform that entails simple visual tools that help it feel refreshing and easy to navigate.

It starts with the filtering option that helps you pick up the category you’re most interested in. Clicking any option immediately narrows the extensive episode gallery down to the related tags.

As for the episode gallery, each line features three cards, each promoting a different episode. Stylish, modern, and clean, the photos promoting the episodes are presented monochromatically. However, hovering over them triggers a cursor effect that brings about a pink shade over it, emphasizing the title of the episode and its guests.

Aside from a very thorough textual summary of the talking points, each episode provides tons of options when it comes to how you want to consume the content. So, aside from the primary audio format, you can also watch the episode on a YouTube video embedded further below or even read it as you can find a transcript near the bottom of the page.
