Countries where podcasting is growing fastest
  • Voxnest have posted the fastest-growing countries for podcasting. The top 4 are Spanish-speaking, all in Latin America. Number 5? China, growing at 43% month-on-month. Given that China has a population of 1.4bn, that's a significant increase for total downloads.
  • Swoot, a new social podcast app, has been launched: you can see friends listening to shows. 25% of podcasts played by users, says the press release, are influenced by friends.
  • Dan Misener had his independent podcast Grownups Read Things They Wrote as Kids featured on Apple's front page. In a blog post he explained how he got there, and what effect it had on his traffic.

  • Patreon changes pricing for new creator plans soon - you have until May 6th to join to retain the old pricing model.
  • Headliner have published results of a test showing that posting audio and a moving waveform performs three times better than a static image.
  • Plink makes free smart links for podcasters, automatically forwarding listeners to play your podcast in their pre-installed podcast apps. It's a nice implementation; the first fifteen users can use code "podnews" and save $5. (We do this too: search for your podcast on Podnews and add "/listen" on the URL - or download the code from our link generator pages.)
  • The Wondery/UMG announcement we reported on yesterday might have something to do with the disappearance of some Wondery podcasts, including One Plus One's exploration of the relationship between Lennon and McCartney, and the Death Row Records vs Bad Boy Records episodes of Business Wars. The reason? Music rights.

  • A pop music critic for the Washington Post posts a clickbaity article entitled Are podcasts killing music or just wasting our time?. The article (which does contain some useful points) has been widely reviled on social media, probably doing exactly what the author wanted; Helen Zaltzman has an especially cogent take (and the comments seem to agree).
  • If your podcast was submitted to Spotify by your podcast host, you may have looked enviously at those who have direct access to Spotify's analytics, which contain demographic details and more information. You can now see that, too: just add your podcast and you'll be able to see your stats; you need access to the email address in your RSS feed.
  • Omny Studio - featured in WIRED magazine this month - have written about their transcription service, and the benefit of it. They also show off their "transcript player".
  • Vox Media has purchased Epic Magazine.
  • Spreaker, a podcast host, have announced a one-click publishing service for their clients, and a few more tweaks.
  • Neilsen have published a blog post about podcast advertising, noting that audiences think podcast advertising is a good fit with the content.
  • A British record plugging service ("pluggers" go out to radio stations and convince them to play songs) has launched a new podcast plugging service, matching artists with podcasts "that best meet their strategic needs".
  • We Edit Podcasts has written a good - no, excellent - list of top 14 podcast blogs.

Podcasts

  • The Primary Ride Home is a new daily podcast from Ride Home Media, "the daily news podcast company". The podcast, hosted by Chris Higgins, is updated for 5pm every day. It's the second podcast from the company; the first was Techmeme Ride Home, a tech news podcast. (Ride Home Media / Anchor)
  • Happy Birthday This Week In Tech, which is 14 years old. Leo Laporte and the team have posted their very first episode, then called Revenge of the Screensavers, on YouTube - oddly, acted out by puppets.

Laura says:

I manage podcasts for an NPR member station. I’m thinking of changing all our language to “follow.” It solves the listen-one-time vs listen-from-now-on problem, but still sounds free.

Joshua adds:

I think "Follow" actually makes a lot of sense. More so than Subscribe or Listen. Particularly when you realize that people "subscribe/follow" a lot of shows and only selectively listen to episodes that either look interesting or come from their absolute favorite shows.

...we'd note that "follow" is language also used by Spotify (in some user interfaces), as well as iHeartRadio.

The podcast that crashes car radios
  • Play 99% Invisible in your Mazda or Nissan, and your radio might crash, according to a recent episode of Reply All. Both Podcast Addict and Pocket Casts have now been patched to stop this from happening; and on Reddit, the person who noticed it, a guy called Ben, pops up with more detail of the bug: and in the comments, a solution... it turns out that characters like %In (along with %jn and %hhn) cause the issue (it's an "uncontrolled format string", apparently).
  • Zach Kahn has spotted that Apple Podcasts has much better browsing functionality in the latest beta version of iOS. "It makes it that much easier to discover new shows", he adds.
  • TMZ is reporting about a legal matter between Chris Hardwick and Cadence13. Hardwick didn't make an episode of ID10T between mid-June and mid-November, which TMZ claim is in breach of contract. The website also reports that Cadence13 has made about $394K in ad revenue from the show.

More on the great "should we use the word 'subscribe' debate"...

Matt says:

The one thing I’d say about ’subscribe’ is that it’s used widely on YouTube and seemingly without negative consequence

Adam says:

Significantly more people use YouTube than listen to podcasts, and they all seem to cope with the word "Subscribe" just fine. They realise that by hitting the "Subscribe" button, they'll hear about new episodes as they're uploaded. There's no implication that it'll cost anything.
I used to think that "Subscribe" might have connotations about paying money, as in a newspaper or magazine subscription. But (sadly) few of today's Millennials and Gen Zs have ever paid for such a subscription.

Podcasts

  • Shell, the petro-chemicals company, has released its first podcast. The Energy Podcast speaks about the global energy system. (Omny Studio)
  • The Bugle - the audio newspaper for a visual world - has moved to Entale, using the company's new RSS transfer feature. The podcast used to be part of Radiotopia, but has recently attempted to gain even more independence, much like the country of Andy Zaltzman, the main host. (Entale)
  • Westeros Weekly is a new Game of Thrones weekly podcast, available Monday afternoons through Game of Thrones’ final season. (Himalaya)

Correspondence

  • There were a few opinions yesterday on the problem with the word "subscribe"; Podnews just prefers to use the word "listen".
  • Jason writes:

    There is a big difference between the word “subscribe” and “listen.”
    “Listen to this podcast” sounds like you’re asking people to hear one episode.
    “Subscribe to this podcast” sounds like you’re asking people to hear all your episodes as you publish them.
    The only solution I can think of this early in the morning is “subscribe for free to hear all episodes.”
    I’m sure there’s a better solution. I’ll work on that.

  • Harris says:

    I think "Subscribe" (used with one simple change) can be even more enticing and helpful than "Listen" when providing instructions to listeners.
    My solution is to take the weakness of the word "Subscribe" (I don't want to pay money!) and turn it into a strength (I'm getting something FREE?!) . Here is how I use it in my show notes:
    Subscribe (free) on Apple Podcasts.
    Subscribe (free) on Google Podcasts or An Android app.
    I think "Subscribe (free)" is better than "Listen" bc you want to instruct them to find and click "Subscribe" rather than just seek out a play button on each episode and "Listen" (and not Subscribe).
    I hope that is a helpful perspective.

Thank you to Podcast Guests - "connecting podcasters with great guests" - for becoming a silver supporter of Podnews today. Be like them.

Podcast Consumer 2019 released; Luminary sneek peek
  • Edison Research revealed their Podcast Consumer 2019 study yesterday in a webinar. They have posted the full slide deck and video on their website. On the Twitter hashtag, Midroll highlight that 70% of podcast consumers are doing "nothing else" when listening to podcasts; Mark Asquith highlights that 75% of non-listeners believe that podcasts are "just not for them", and sees this as a marketing opportunity; and Evo Terra highlights that podcast listeners overwhelmingly use their phones for just that.
  • Apple appears to have rolled-back their Apple Podcasts on the web product, which we reported on yesterday - the old pages are now appearing again. We did notice some errors using the service yesterday; perhaps it needed a little more polish, or maybe they're waiting until WWDC in six weeks. Meanwhile, 9to5Mac has discovered an icon for a rumoured-but-likely Apple Podcasts desktop app in an upcoming macOS release.
  • The BBC is testing dynamically personalised programme trails within BBC Radio 6 Music, using AMillionAds. It's a beta trial currently, run on the BBC's "Taster" platform; but the possibilities on a signed-in service like BBC Sounds are obvious. (The BBC does not carry commercials in the UK). Notable quote: "the team did want to run it within [BBC] Sounds but that platform’s development path is so intense and they didn’t want to wait."

Apple Podcasts now available on the web
  • Apple Podcasts is now available on the web, with a brand new web interface. The pages are responsive, and work on desktop and on Android phones. All these new pages are already indexed within a Google search, including specific episode pages, the first time that podcast episode pages have surfaced in search.
    • Google Podcasts are also working on a web interface, but have yet to properly launch the product, and these pages don't appear in ordinary search results. Both Apple and Google products lack a front page, or a method of subscribing.

Update: After we mentioned these pages, Apple appear to have rolled back their launch of this service, and these podcast pages now link to the old iTunes-branded page. Perhaps this is something they're planning for WWDC in early June.

  • New research from the Futuri Media, University of Florida, and NAB 2019 National Podcast Listener Study, which studies podcast listeners, contains much data and statistics about US podcast listeners. Catching our eye:

    • 16% of podcast listeners don't subscribe to any podcasts
    • 33% of listeners use Spotify to listen; 32% use Apple Podcasts; and surprisingly 70% claim to use YouTube.
