SoundCloud has been home to plenty of podcasts for a while, but it’s now making it easy for creators to run their RSS feeds straight from the service.

From today, SoundCloud Podcasts is coming out of beta – over 15,000 podcasts took part – and opening up to anyone with an account. To start a podcast, all you need to do is hit the ‘Permissions’ tab and select ‘Include in RSS feed.’

All of your tracks will be included in your RSS feed if they’re made public. SoundCloud also has embeddable players to make promoting your podcast easy.

Its “timed comments” feature, which allows visitors to add their thoughts to specific moments of a track will also appeal to a lot of podcasters.

We’re developing ideas for a TNW podcast. Let us know in the comments whether you’d listen and what you’d like it to feature.
