  • TargetSpot achieved revenues of €12.3m (US $14.2m) in H1/21, a year-on-year increase of 56.3% (led by the US, which was up 72%). Its figures were released as part of its owning company, AudioValley; it posted a €0.4m ($0.46m) loss, after a 60% increase in staff costs.

The Tech Stuff
  • podcast:popular is a new proposal for the podcast namespace: a tag that would show a podcast's most popular episodes in a podcast player. A podcast hosting company could turn this tag on for all shows, and surface the most popular show for potential listeners to discover. Your thoughts would be welcome.
  • From May, but worth a look - Den Delimarsky posts how to download your podcast analytics data from Spotify. It makes us wonder whether this works using the standard API bearer header. Also - why are we having to jump through these hoops to get API access to data for our own podcast?
  • When sending boostagrams, you can send any amount of boosts - and some numbers have meaning. A boost for 1776 is known as a "Liberty Boost", while a boost for 1999 is a "Prince Boost". Gary Arndt has compiled an initial list - anyone who wishes to send us a school calculator boost would be a friend for life!
  • Cloudflare post an interesting piece about multi-user IP address detection. The current IAB specification discusses a method of marking some IP addresses (a big corporation, for example) as safe to assume it has multiple users on the end: but this technology looks as if it might automate that work.
  • Boostagram corner: Using value4value, we earn small amounts of cryptocurrency from every listener, and additional boostagrams - messages alongside larger tips. Dave Jones liked "Good Apple, Bad Apple" (thanks for the Rush Boost); Brian of London liked our mention of him last week (1029 sats from Castamatic); Dave Jones again: "I don’t think Spotify is “breaking podcasting”. They’re just breaking their product. Their podcast strategy looks increasingly fragmented and hard to understand. When their attempt to wall the garden fails, like that always does, the open RSS ecosystem will still be here ticking along - because information wants to be free and audio wants to be heard." Thanks for the 21,138 sat from Castamatic. Adam Curry likes us when we say newpodcastapps․com (5000 sats from CurioCaster); "medus" says Podnews is the first show they listen to each weekday - thanks for the 2,000 sats from Fountain. In the last week we made 39,135 sats (US $24.05). We appreciate the boosts, and the normal sats per minute: send us a message here by holding down the boost button in your podcast app, and if you don't have one, get one from here.

In depth: Google Podcasts blocking some podcasts

Podnews has discovered that Google Podcasts is restricting podcast content, marking some shows as "Content not available", with a note that the company has "restricted some content for people who aren't over 18". Shows may be restricted even if they are not marked as 'explicit', or have any obvious reason to be blocked; and publishers have no visibility as to whether their shows have been flagged in this way.

We were contacted by an affected sports and fitness podcast publisher, with episodes including interviews with a women's football manager, a TV sports commentator, and a rugby coach. Their client was concerned that their content had been apparently flagged as unsuitable for kids. Having reviewed the content, we can't see any reason why it should be restricted.

A Google Podcasts spokesperson tells us:

"We work hard to offer a safe and reliable platform to our creators, which means we take seriously our obligations to comply with applicable regulations and legal requirements around the world.

"As part of our efforts to comply with new children’s privacy regulations in the United Kingdom and other regions, certain content may now be restricted for users who our systems indicate may be under the age of 18 or who are not signed into their Google Account and are in a region impacted by the aforementioned compliance measures.

"To determine what content is age-appropriate for these younger users, we rely on information from multiple sources, including publisher tags, our own internal reviews, and other signals. We are working to improve our signals so that we can safely expand the corpus of podcasts that can be accessed by younger and/or signed-out users in the relevant regions, and plan to roll out additional updates soon."

We're unaware of any other podcast app that takes decisions to hide entire shows like this, seemingly at random. It's particularly disappointing that publishers are unaware that their show (and reputation) is being erroneously highlighted in this way. Google can, and should, do better.

Podcast News
  • Spotify has launched two new shows about Spotify this month. Spotify: Mic Check launches on Oct 19 with "intimate conversations with musicians and podcasters from around the world, sharing exclusive recordings and personal stories in their own words".
  • We're told that the other, Spotify: Discover This, is brand new and launches tomorrow, though you'll spot 11 episodes have been published in the past year. It promises fresh insights on music, podcasting, cultural moments, and trends.
  • The existing "Spotify show about Spotify", Spotify: For the Record, will, this season, "push our stories further by making this podcast the only place where audiences can hear certain business updates."
  • Radiotopia has launched S***hole Country, describes as an audio memoir about achieving the Ghanaian-American Dream. It's produced by an anonymous producer using the name Afia Kaakyire.

People The Tech Stuff
  • The expiration of an old root certificate for Let's Encrypt continues to cause problems with some podcast platforms. NPR, RadioPublic and TuneIn are no longer updating any RSS feeds from Anchor or Feedpress, and others secured with Let's Encrypt. NPR, RadioPublic and TuneIn need to fix their servers to remove the old Let's Encrypt root cert: this fix helped us last week when we had a similar issue.
  • The open list of podcast hosts, containing details of patterns to look for in RSS feeds and audio URLs, has been significantly updated by John Spurlock to include many more hosts. From the data, here's a list of podcast hosts.
  • There are now 2,209 podcasts that are value4value enabled.
  • The Fountain app has been updated. It supports episode-level value splits (so you can share sats with your guests) and now supports serialised shows. It does value4value and RSS chapter points (among many other things).
  • Libsyn Pro appears to have migrated many of its shows over to Libsyn RSS feeds, according to our podcast hosts tracker (we list the two as separate). Otherwise, our sample suggests Megaphone gained 27 shows overall, while Libsyn lost 25 overall.
  • Good Apple: Now that recent versions of Apple Podcasts use one central RSS scraper, instead of every single phone calling on RSS feeds every time, this has resulted in significant bandwidth savings for podcast hosts. Compare: Friday May 7 (2,947 hits) with Friday Oct 8 (just 216 from the scraper; a further 395 from old iPhones).
  • Bad Apple: The Apple Podcasts app has now had 1,100 ratings on the Apple App Store, and has a score of just 1.8.
Tips and tricks
  • How to create a podcast transcript - Podcastpage also highlights the benefits of doing so.
  • Why you need to define your podcast concept - Rachel Corbett says that the more specific it is, the better.
  • Want to squoosh your podcast artwork down to the 500KB that Apple requires? We heartily recommend Squoosh: we use it every day.
  • Boostagrams this week from Gary Arndt, sending 1776 sats through Fountain and saying "This show is my primary way of keeping abreast with what is happening in the podcast industry". Sir Peet, using Fountain, sends 5,000 sats and says "more drinks, cheers!" And, someone anonymous sends 2112 sats from Breez, pointing out that "Ozy Media is a very strange company". You're right. We made 22,815 sats last week, about US $12.50 (much from streaming, not boosts). Here's how to enable your podcast for value4value - and if you're not seeing a boost button in your podcast app, find a better one.

'Fat Leonard' podcast exposes corruption in US military

Fri, 2021-10-08 11:54

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

  • A new podcast, Fat Leonard, highlights what it claims is corruption within the US Navy. Leonard himself talks for the first time, and the podcast also includes the brave women who exposed the fraud. From PRX and Project Brazen, the content studio created by former Wall Street Journal reporters Bradley Hope and Tom Wright, it launched yesterday.
  • A market share of podcast hosts based by new episodes has been published for September. John Spurlock's Livewire Labs has produced the data: Anchor published the most new episodes, with Buzzsprout, Spreaker, Libsyn and Soundcloud also in the top five.
  • Exclusive: A look at the podcast market in Latvia. Andrejs Siliņš tells us that Apple Podcasts is the #4 platform, with just 10% of Latvians saying they use it. Spotify is more than three times as popular; but there's a bigger platform still.

Spotify and Anchor unveil new podcast monetisation options

Thu, 2021-10-07 10:58

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

  • Spotify has made a series of announcements about podcast monetisation. First up, top Anchor podcasters in the US can now be part of the Spotify Audience Network. That allows ad-buyers to buy ads on your show, and improves your potential to earn revenue. These ads are called "Automated ads", since they'll be automatically inserted: if you're with Anchor, you can join the waitlist today.
  • Anchor has also launched "Premium sponsorships", where they sell host-read sponsor credits on your behalf. It's for "select creators with a higher level of listener engagement": you'll be contacted if you qualify.
  • Anchor's original Anchor Sponsorships is now rebranded "Ambassador ads", where you spread the word about Anchor to your listeners.

13-23 year-olds prefer Spotify

Wed, 2021-10-06 09:16

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

While you're planning 2022, you should be prioritising the Latino audience, according to Gabriel Soto of Edison Research. He's writing in Sounds Profitable with Podsights - you should subscribe.

  • Want to reach 13-23 year-olds with your podcast? You'll be wanting to promote Spotify, not Apple Podcasts. A Gen-Z survey published by Transistor (and compiled by a Gen-Z'er) shows that Spotify is almost three times more popular than Apple Podcasts - which, in the long run, could "have detrimental effects on both the creators and listeners using Spotify".
  • iHeartRadio is still #1 for podcasts, according to Podtrac's Top US Podcast Publishers for September. iHeart added 29m global downloads last month; but also added 30 new shows. (Podtrac contains participating publishers only).

    • Here's what else you need to know today - there's no change in the top 5 Top US Podcasts, with The Daily still #1. SmartLess - a new entry last month at #9 - is still #9.
  • YouTube is hiring an executive to look after podcasts, according to Bloomberg. The company is owned by Google, which also owns Google Podcasts - but if they can manage sixteen messaging apps...

OZY Media shuts down after reports about business practices

Mon, 2021-10-04 11:48

Visit https://podnews.net/update/ozy-media-closes for all the links, and to get our newsletter.

  • Ozy Media has announced it is to shut down, after a number of reports about the company's business practices. There were question marks over what the company had told investors, advertisers, employees and guests; and the impact could still affect other media companies. Carlos Watson, the co-founder and CEO of Ozy Media, has resigned from the NPR Board. The company had five podcasts, including co-productions with iHeartMedia and the BBC.
  • 71% of younger (25-40 year-old) public radio fans use podcasts, accordings to Jacobs Media's' Public Radio Techsurvey 2021. Only three-quarters of public radio fans use a radio at home; and for millennials, that figure drops to 55%. In total, 39% of public radio fans listen to podcasts every week.

  • In case you missed an email, Anchor "identified an issue that caused plays to be undercounted between Sep 8-14". It recalculated all data on Sep 21.

Spotify's now interactive? Well, sort of. — You still have to read your screen and type answers. Zivoze is the hands-free & eyes-free route to true podcast interactivity. Download the app, then username 'interactive,' password 'really.'

The Tech Stuff
  • RadioPublic, the Podbean app, and TuneIn are among those that have not updated any shows hosted on Anchor since Sep 30. We suspect this is related to the expiration of an old root certificate for Let's Encrypt. Podnews's webserver also failed to connect to Anchor RSS feeds from Oct 1 (or our own internal tools which also use Let's Encrypt); we had to patch our server. The fix is for RadioPublic, Podbean and TuneIn to implement, not Anchor.
  • Open-source Android podcast app AntennaPod is curious about an apparent drop in users over the last few days. Any clues for them? (We wonder if it's related to the above?)
  • RSS feeds on LibsynPro infrastructure appear to being migrated to standard libsyn․com feeds.
  • In case you wondered, last week Podnews made 4,536 sats from listening to the show, and a further 29,956 from boosts. That's $16.40 just last week. In total so far, we've made $188. Even though it's very early days, that'll pay for a decent round of drinks, so if your podcast isn't value4value-enabled, we'd recommend doing so.

  • NPR's weekly Car Talk program has been taken off the air, more than seven years after the death of one of the co-hosts. The show continues as a podcast, though: a new, twice-weekly podcast will rerun episodes from the show's early years.
  • Launching today, NPR's Book of the Day is a daily quick listen with the best book interviews from across NPR, on one podcast feed. The podcast will offer a mix of genre fiction, literary fiction and nonfiction.
  • A genuine commitment to diversity and inclusion can no longer be distinct from conducting business successfully.

The Tech Stuff
  • Twitter has launched crypto tipping using the lightning network: the same tool used by Podcasting 2.0 value4value apps. The tool uses the Strike API. It's "rolling out" on iOS, but Strike itself - marketed as "money without borders" - is only available in the US and El Salvador.
  • Samsung has updated their RSS specifications. The specification, now at v2.0, includes a small list of supported categories: subcategories will not be used.
  • Podcast hosting company RSS․com is now supporting the podcast:funding tag. This tag lets podcasters add a link to support the show financially, which appears in apps like Podcast Addict, Podverse, PodcastGuru, PodLP and many more (and our podcast directory too).
  • Benjamin Bellamy spoke about the podcast:location tag at the Netherlands Podcast Festival 2021. Here are his slides, containing at least one Photoshop of Podnews's Editor.
Tips and tricks
  • Here, from the UK broadcast regulator Ofcom, is research into swearwords - sorted into "mild", "moderate", and "strong" - and whether everyone knows what they mean. Caution: this list contains almost every swearword available. (This might be helpful, at the very least, to work out whether that podcast is deserving of the 'explicit' tag - though if you're reading this list to find out, the answer's probably "yes".)
Podcast News
  • Jackie Gillies, a businesswoman and cast member of Real Housewifes of Melbourne launches Shine It Up today - offering inspiration and motivation to live your best life.
  • New from the Wonder Media Network, As She Rises brings together poems from artists throughout the US and territories that depict the effects of climate change on their home and their people.
  • Foundation: The Official Podcast is an accompaniment podcast for AppleTV+'s Foundation original show. It was launched on Friday, and is produced by Audacy's Pineapple Street Studios.
  • Who, When, Wow! launches today - the first Tinkercast show to launch with Wondery since their partnership was announced last month. Hosted by Rebecca Shier, the show is initially released within the Wondery+ app, and is a peek into the lives of unsung humans.
  • The Pod Broads, a podcast about women in podcasting, launched its second series last week. Nichole Perkins was the first guest; the season will also include Misha Euceph, Noor Tagouri, and Avery Trufelman. It's hosted by Alexandra Cohl.

"Way too much vitriol is indiscriminately flung around about programmatic advertising in podcasting. Truth be told, many podcast adtech players aren’t helping either, by thumbing their nose at the realities that face savvy buyers. But by examining those realities and meeting in the middle, everyone wins." - Bryan Barletta in the latest Sounds Profitable, with Magellan AI.
