Sharing something from a podcast implied sharing the whole podcast, then telling someone where to catch a particular moment. But with podcast timestamps, anyone can just link directly to a moment they are interested in.
The capability to send your listeners to a particular point within an episode means you can build your social hype around quotable moments. So you can get more people to hit the *play button* on your latest episode, whether they’re existing fans or new listeners.
Also, bringing listeners to memorable parts within your episode can help retention, allowing fans to quickly jump right in.
Timestamps remove the clash of sharing your content, clearing the way for new listeners and a much better podcast consumption experience for everyone.
