Award-winning sports and business show the High Performance Podcast has launched an official app for listeners, combining insights from over 200 guests that have appeared on the podcast over the past four years.
The app features content specifically curated for the High Performance community, including early access to new episodes, app-exclusive content like extended episodes, book previews and Q&As, daily boosts of motivation from previous podcast guests, and search filters which allow users to find episodes based on the topic or guest.
Jake Humphrey and Professor Damian Hughes, the creators and hosts of the podcast, have also introduced a new version of their subscription, High Performance Plus, that’s only available on the app. With the new Plus subscription, users will gain access to ad-free content, exclusive episodes, masterclasses, and the ability to save favourite episodes and boosts.
There will also be “dozens of new features and hours of brand new Plus-exclusive content” coming in the future. Starting 1 January 2024, all High Performance Plus subscriptions across Supercast and Apple Podcasts will be ending as users are encouraged to move to the app instead. Yearly subscribers on Apple Podcasts and Supercast will receive refunds for their unused months once the subscriptions end.
“My definition of High Performance is to find the things that you love and give you purpose... and then do them to a level that brings you, and those around you, complete joy,” said Humphrey on LinkedIn. “I love helping groups of people achieve things they never thought possible and feel so lucky to get the chance to try and do that for the people working at High Performance and for our audience.”
“We have big plans to keep helping people achieve their own version of high performance... this app is just the start…”
Other podcasts and podcast platforms that have launched apps for listeners include slow news publisher, Tortoise Media. Its mobile app focuses primarily on podcast content with elements like the ability to create custom playlists and follow playlists curated by the hosts of its podcasts, as well as being able to see supporting material while listening to podcasts exploring major investigations.
