PodNova LogoWhat was PodNova?

PodNova launched in May 2005 as a web-based Podcasting service. It was set up by a company called Active8 in the Netherlands.

The service allowed podcasters to submit their shows to the PodNova directory with details about their shows, and podcast listeners to manage their podcast subscription, rate shows and download new episodes.

What happened to PodNova?

PodNova shut down at the end of February 2010.

The message on their site in the run-up to the closure of PodNova read as follows:

Podnova.com has decided to shutdown the Podnova website effective on the end of February 2010.
We strongly advice our users to transfer their subscriptions to a other service. When podnova.com discontinues your data is lost.

Hello. I recently started up a site called Podslinger that does some of what PodNova used to do. I just thought people might be interested in knowing there is a replacement out there. I’m working to improve it every day, and would love to hear about any feature suggestions anyone might have. The URL is podslinger.net.
