Publish your content to Captivate

Descript's powerful publishing tool allows you to publish directly to Captivate.

Captivate is a podcast hosting platform that gives you the freedom and flexibility to make podcasting yours. Create unlimited podcasts, get advanced analytics, and monetize in one dashboard.


Getting Started

Once you've finished editing your Composition, click the Share button at the top-right corner of your Project. Then select the Export tab, and under the Cloud Export section click the ellipsis button (More...) and select Captivate from the list.



You will then be prompted to configure your Published page settings and click Publish (or Republish) when complete. Visit our Publishing Overview for more details on these settings.




A confirmation window will appear indicating that a page was created with your published file. Click the blue Continue with Captivate link at the bottom to send your published Page to Captivate.



You will then be redirected to a web browser where you can sign into your Captivate account (or create a new account if you have not yet signed up). At that point, you'll see that the file is processing.



When the file finishes processing, you can select which podcast you'd like to publish your file to, and click Import from Descript.



Once your podcast has completed uploading, you can add episode notes, artwork, and set a publish date and time. After filling those out, click the Publish Episode button to publish your podcast.




Can I also upload video content to Captivate?

No - the Captivate integration only accepts audio content.
