The Podcast Font provides all the icons you need for your podcast website, your podcast app or your podcast documents.

It is used by Podnews where it was first publicly announced.

Browsing The Podcast Font

The Podcast Font provides Icons for the Podcasters,
Podcastfont-Podcaster

Icons for the Podcast Listeners,
Podcastfont-Listener

Podcast Directory icons,
Podcastfont-Directory

and Miscellaneous podcast-related icons.

You can combine filters, such as “Podcasting 2.0 and Open-Source platforms for listeners”,
Podcastfont-P2-OSS-Listener

And you can type the name of the icon you are looking for (for instance Castopod's icon).
Podcastfont-filter

How to use it on your website

  • Download the podcastfont.zip package and upload it to your website, or simply use the podcastfont.com online copy.

  • Add the following HTML code in the section of your pages (adapt this code according to your server),

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://podcastfont.com/releases/202201131704/css/PodcastFont.css" integrity="sha384-GXfV9/rBA6iCRFCngL3/BZ6nAiPh6LUJVawef09rA6mrpKPMe41y054gBT0oamrA" crossorigin="anonymous" />

(You should get the latest version from The Podcast Font Help page.)

or import it in your own CSS.

<style>
@import url('https://podcastfont.com/releases/202201131704/css/PodcastFont.css');
</style> 

Podcastfont-WebsiteCodeInjection

  • When you need an icon, copy its HTML code from podcastfont.com and paste it in your document.
    Podcastfont-WebsiteInsert

Use it with your office software

  • Download the podcastfont.zip package
    podcastfont-download

  • Unzip the package,
    Podcastfont-unzip

  • Install the Podcast Font (either OTF or TTF) by double-clicking on the file,

Use it with Nextcloud + Collabora

One huge advantage (among many others…) of Nextcloud Office + Collabora Online over closed platforms is that you have total control on them and therefore you are able to install new fonts on the server itself!
Just copy the font file on your Collabora server, in the /opt/collaboraoffice/share/fonts/truetype/local/ directory.
If you are running the Collabora Docker image, you should probably copy the font file in the /usr/local/share/fonts/truetype/ directory and map it to /opt/collaboraoffice/share/fonts/truetype/local/:

$ sudo docker run -t -d -p 127.0.0.1:9980:9980 -e 'domain=myserver\\.nextcloud' --volume "/usr/local/share/fonts/truetype/:/opt/collaboraoffice/share/fonts/truetype/local/:ro" --restart always --cap-add MKNOD collabora/code

When you need an icon, copy its glyph from podcastfont.com and paste it in your document,
Podcastfont-Nextcloud

You may also select an icon from the menu “Insert” / “Special Characters”.
Podcastfont-Nextcloud-InsertChar
Suck on that GAFAM-Docs-365!
