08/24/2018 How Far Has Podcasting Come?
Blubrry is a directory of over 530,000 podcasts. According to the company’s CEO Todd Cochrane, 85,000 new shows were created from 2016 to 2017 and 126,000 new shows were created from 2017 to 2018. Of course, many of those shows crash and burn. They fail due to the quality of the content or the host losing interest after realizing it’s just not that easy. Cochrane says the average number of episodes before hosts throw in the towel is three. After three shows, they quit. Cochrane says another factor that plays into hosts quitting is the platform. If a host chooses a platform and that platform does a poor job of promoting the show for the host, nobody will even know it exists.

Hernan Lopez, the CEO and Founder of Wondery.com says his research shows that podcast listeners are now dpownloading about 1 billion episodes per month. And those listeners are downloading nearly 15 episodes or podcasts every month.

08/22/2018 Google and Podcasting
Podcasting is a growing medium for marketers to tell a brand’s story. The numbers are astounding, and reflect similar growth in video over the last few years. Recent research by Edison Research shows that 11% more Americans listened to podcasts in 2016 when compared to the prior year. Over 110 million Americans listened to a podcast at least once in 2016, and 67 million Americans listen to at least one podcast a month. Phones and tablets are the preferred device to listen to a podcast with two-thirds being accessed through those devices.

If you are marketer, you have to pay attention to podcasting. The phenomenon is only expected to increase as Google moves into the space. Currently around 500,000 active podcasts exists, and Google predicts that number will double in the next few years. Google is paying attention to these statistics and is moving toward incorporating podcasts into search results — much like it does with video where search results are broken down into separate boxes at the top of the screen.

08/17/2018 4 Practical Ways to Repurpose Podcast Content
Podcasting is one of the most effective mediums in the modern world. With a microphone and some free editing software, individuals and businesses can spread their message in the form of on-demand, nternet-based audio shows. Here are four practical ways to repurpose a podcast for maximum engagement.

According to stats released in March 2018, over 44 percent of the U.S. population has listened to podcasts. Up to 80 percent of podcast listeners stay tuned for all or most of each episode, averaging a total of seven shows per week. When one looks at the growth of podcasting over the last five years, it has been an explosive upward trend that does not seem to be ending anytime soon. With the incredible popularity of podcasting today, it should come as no shock that businesses are becoming more involved in this growing medium, whether through advertising or creating shows of their own. But those who produce a podcast and stop there are missing some beneficial marketing opportunities. It is possible to repurpose podcast content, extending its reach far beyond the listening audience.

08/15/2018 Speakers, Monitors and Headphones
Monitors are probably the most important audio device in our pursuit of professional sound and audio clarity. To be effective when mixing, studio recording technicians, engineers, sound designers and producers need to be able to hear the sound represented as accurately as possible. Only then can they create a universally listenable production, whether the audience listens through earbuds, stereo speakers or in a car traveling down the highway.

08/10/2018 Want To Be Heard? 11 Crucial Tips For Starting A Podcast
When it comes to controversial content, podcasts have it in the bag. I do not mean the media genre itself is particularly racey; I am talking about the way we consume it as a culture.

Not everyone listens to podcasts; those who do tend to be diehards of the medium while others have never so much as heard one. Oddly enough, it is a fairly even split— with half of American homes listening to podcasts. That dichotomy is not present for many other media styles, but it actually lends a competitive edge to podcasts.

Listeners are extremely engaged— which is the ultimate buzzword for anyone marketing anything socially. Unlike social videos, like Facebook in-feed which holds an average watch time of 16.7 seconds, podcast listeners keep listening, with 80% listening to all of the episodes they begin— and thats week after week.
