  • Dave Winer was a guest on Guy Kawasaki's Remarkable People a few weeks ago in this episode. He talks about the invention of the RSS feed, and the first podcast. (thanks, Josie!)
    • Hosted by Ivy Queen on Spotify, LOUD is brand new today, exploring the touchstones of Reggaeton through on-the-ground reporting spanning countries all across the globe. Each episode serves as a chapter in the story of the genre: from traces of the music beat that sparked a war between two San Juan DJs (and resulted in a drive-by shooting injury of Daddy Yankee) to drug trades and fearful politicians that shaped the successes of cultural hits like “Gasolina.”

Lore's Aaron Mahnke launches new show: Bridgewater

Thu, 2021-07-29 12:07

Visit https://podnews.net/update/bridgewater-spotify for all the links, and to get our newsletter.

  • The creator of Lore, Aaron Mahnke returns with Bridgewater, with a promo set to launch later today. It's the supernatural story of folklore professor Jeremy Bradshaw, who is pulled into the mysterious 1980 disappearance of his police officer father. The screenplay is written by Lauren Shippen; Bridgewater is on all major platforms.
  • Spotify's podcast ad revenue has jumped 627% year-on-year, according to their revenue announcement today: Joe Rogan and Megaphone helping the increase. We learnt that Podz cost the company $53.4m; and Greenroom $67.7m. The company appears to have stopped reporting the number of monthly users who listen to podcasts. They have 365m monthly users; last we heard, 25% of them (91m) listen to podcasts.

    • Spotify stocks did drop, though: they had slower user growth, partly caused by an issue with email verification which perhaps cost the company two million users. (We feel better at our bugs now).
  • First look: Podcast producer Jam Street Media has been acquired by Amaze Media Labs, in a deal announced today. No terms were given. Amaze Media Labs owns a number of podcast networks; Jam Street Media is run by Matty Staudt, a member of the start-up team at Stitcher and iHeartRadio's first VP of Podcast Programming.

Tips and tricks Podcast News Analysis

Spotify's announcement about their open access feature conveniently includes many of the main competitors to Apple Podcasts paid subscriptions. Patreon may be included through their Acast integration, we'd guess; leaving Substack as the only major service not included.

With this announcement, Spotify is supporting a variety of different ways to charge for your podcast, if you so wish - using services like Memberful, Supporting Cast or Acast+. Unlike Apple, each of these allow you to keep control over your membership list; none charge anywhere near the 30% fee that Apple does; and, unlike apple, all work on Android, the most popular mobile OS in every continent.

Since the Apple Podcasts app also accepts private RSS feeds, all these services also work with Apple: the only drawback is that users need to subscribe on a website away from the Apple ecosystem.

Spotify is showing that it's entirely comfortable playing in the open world of RSS, and now an open world of paid subscriptions: however you want to sell them.

Apple Podcasts, iOS-only, with a 100% lock-in model for subscriptions and a hefty commission, would seem to offer less earning potential for creators.

  • Audacity has updated its privacy policy, and the team has apologised for some wording that "begged for misinterpretation". The company has amended its policy to no longer store IP addresses (even for 24 hours); and removed a restriction for under-13s.

    • Opinion: The privacy policy now seems clear and fit for purpose. However, it's highly unlikely that the amendment about storing IP addresses would have been made without independent media holding them to account.
  • iHeartRadio is #1 for podcasts, according to the Media Monitors Podcast Listener Survey for the second half of June. Joe Rogan and The Daily are #1 and #2 shows; comedy is the #1 genre. The research is based on recall; Media Monitors is owned by iHeartMedia.
  • Apple Podcasts is hiring for a Head of Content. This was N'Jeri Eaton's title.

Fiction podcasting: growing by more than 300 percent

Fri, 2021-07-16 12:18

Visit https://podnews.net/update/fiction-podcasting-growth for all the links, and to get our newsletter.

  • Listening to fiction podcasts have grown by as much as 338% in Sweden in the past year, according to Karin Bäckmark, Spotify's Nordic podcast manager (pictured, left). The company has announced a new audio drama, called De Fria, which will start recording on location near Nynäshamn in September. It'll be released in 2022, and will be directed by award-winning director Peter Grönlund (pictured, right), produced by Munck Media.
  • The social podcasting app GoodPods has received an update this week, with good news for indie podcasters. The leaderboards (hit search, then scroll down) have an "indie only" switch, which filters out the corporate shows. There's also a "your friends listened-to" view, also to help discover new shows. You should claim your podcast (edit your profile), too.

  • The June 2021 US Podcast Report is out from Triton Digital. Stitcher are #1 for a second month, beating NPR (though iH eartRadio isn't measured). Average weekly downloads for the top 10 publishers were up by 5% year-on-year, in spite of an Apple Podcasts auto-download bug and a shift to IAB v2.1. (One investment analyst recently used figures from the competing Podtrac ranker to claim podcasting was in negative growth).

  • Bernstein, an investment company, released a report questioning Spotify's podcast investments in what they term "a slowing market". Spotify's stock dropped 6% on the news.

    • Analysis: Bernstein quotes Podtrac figures as evidence of this 'slowing market', saying that in June, listening sank 16.5% year-on-year. However, Podtrac don't measure Spotify's podcasts; and it's notable that the top ten publishers in Triton Digital's latest Podcast Report for the US (measuring May vs May) shows an 11.4% growth in downloads. However, a bug in Apple Podcasts may affect total downloads in June.

  • Australians love their smart speakers, according to new research from Edison Research and Commercial Radio Australia. 26% of people own one; compared to 33% in the US. The research doesn't specifically mention podcast consumption (though 41% claim to use it to "get the news").

    • Podnews is available on your smart speaker: "Play the news from Podnews podcasting news" works, and you'll find us in your news briefing menu.
  • The Australian Podcast Ranker is also out for June, measuring participating publishers. Casefile True Crime is still #1, but Hamish & Andy has moved up to #2. Casefile is now on a break while their anonymous host recovers: so, will we see a new #1 for July?
  • RSS Podcasting has launched a community section of their website, promoting the varied shows available on their hosting platform.

Tips and tricks The Tech Stuff
  • The OPAWG list of rss-useragents now contains an acceptsaac column, to help podcast hosts automatically give supporting podcatchers a better-sounding, lower-bitrate version of a show. Podnews is using this to deliver AAC to some podcast apps.
  • Podnews has implemented the Podchaser API on our podcast pages, bringing back ratings and creators.
  • The Podcasting 2.0 team this week have been working on sending messages alongside tips, and cross-platform comments for podcast episodes. Their Mastodon instance is a good place to learn more.
  • There should be a new Podcast Index website shortly, too.
  • Satoshis Stream, a value4value tool, now allows you to use webhooks to display value payments in live podcast streams.
Podcast News

  • Claiming your confidence is back for a new season. It provides personal development via inspiring, honest and entertaining conversations with confident people, and is now being produced by Podshape.

Three times a week, hosts Sandra Herrera and Lisa Roman will provide previews, recaps and interviews with some of the top players in the world.
  • I Love Lucifer is a black and white podcast with Lucille Ball and... wait, no. Starring scream queens and monsters from hell, Go Girl Media have launched a new bad-to-the-bone podcast. This comedy horror podcast began as a television show but was shelved in 2020 due to the pandemic: two B movie stars battle movie monsters by day… and real monsters by night.
