Almost Tangible wins big at the NY Festival Awards
  • Almost Tangible, who's Macbeth was recorded on location in 360-degree binaural sound, has won a number of awards at the New York Radio Festival Awards, including a Grand Trophy and 4 Gold Trophies for Best Digital Drama, Best Drama Podcast, Best Director and Best Sound. The company was awarded Production Company of The Year. We first covered them in November.

    • The winners are on the NYF website. Congratulations also to Podnews supporter Lantigua Williams & Co.’s 70 Million, which was bronze winner in the category of Narrative/Documentary Podcasts; and to supporters NPR and Megaphone / Panoply for your winning entries too.
  • Edison Research and NPR are unveiling their Smart Audio Report 2019 study today at 2pm New York time in a free webinar. Tom Webster and Joel Sucherman are presenting the highlights of their findings about smart speaker use. 69% of smart speaker users are using them daily; but a majority say they don't know enough about their device to use all the features it offers.
  • Danny Baker, a much-loved and much-sacked UK radio presenter, is to start a podcast based on his most recent BBC 5 Live show. He was fired after an ill-advised tweet a few months ago. Previously on another station, he learnt of his imminent sacking before going on-air, and proceeded to broadcast a full show railing against the management. His new podcast starts next year.

Household tips from the 1950's; and a PM19 session not to miss
  • At Podcast Movement 2019, Thurs 15 Aug 11.30am - 12.15pm, an exciting session: hearing from podcast newsletter writers. Wil Williams, Skye Pillsbury and Podnews editor James Cridland will be on stage with Arielle Nissenblatt from EarBuds Podcast Collective. We suspect only one will be silly enough to wear a branded shirt.
  • Shift FM is a workout app that lets you listen to podcasts while you rest, listen to music while you lift, and "everything else you need in a workout app". /thanks Colin Kelly

  • The Virtual Couch interviews Dan Radin from Auxbus. "Dan did a great job of talking about the state of podcasting, what compelled him, a 15-year veteran of the audio industry, to head into the podcast industry specifically, AND he teaches me how to better use my mic (after 135 episodes of my podcast)" (Blubrry)
  • Single Daddy Daily features two single daddies, Drew Manning and Evan DeMarco, looking at what it takes to balance a successful career, dating, and most importantly being a present parent. (Messy)

French podcast publishers work together; Duolingo make a dual French/English podcast
  • In France, GESTE, a group of online publishers, has set up a 'Distribution of Podcasts' working group, to "put in place the necessary agreements with rights holders (producers, journalists, dramatists, music etc)" and "to define best practice (indexing of RSS feeds, editorial presentation, access to statistics, respect for the integrity of the content etc)".
  • Duolingo launch today what the company claims is the first of its kind: the Duolingo French Podcast, a dual podcast in French and English, aimed to help people understand French using compelling stories. It's presented by Ngofeen Mputubwele​, a journalist, lawyer, and podcast producer based in New York City.
  • Malcolm Gladwell and Jacob Weisberg's Pushkin Industries have released their latest podcast. Making a Killing is a new premium podcast on Luminary this week.

  • Conviction, a new book by Denise Mina, "stars a strong female protagonist who is obsessed by true crime podcasts and decides, one day, to investigate one of the unsolved crimes herself." It gets a positive review in the WaPo.
  • One of the benefits of the open technical infrastructure of real podcasts: you can use the app you want, rather than a publisher's app that could have all kinds of other code in it. Like the app from Spanish football league La Liga, which listened to your microphone and worked out your location to discover bars that were using a pirated video stream.
  • Are host-read ads best? Or can you use a pre-produced spot ad instead? The Sonic Truth covers data from Megaphone's Ken Lagana in this episode; as he says in an accompanying article:

    Some campaigns may require the power of an influencer just laying out the reasons why they love a product; others may be better suited to a pre-produced spot with an orchestral swell halfway through the ad. Some campaigns may even require both.

  • Our Editor spoke at Podcast Day last week with three podcasts that everyone can learn from. Here's what he said, in podcast form.
  • Australia's APRA MCOS offers a special podcasting music licence. Is it, at last, a way of licensing music for podcasts? We wrote an article on that.
  • Spotifywatch: your Editor has now been given the new interface which gives parity for music and podcasts.

  • CNN Films have launched Apollo 11: Beyond The Moon, a podcast comemmorating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar mission. Presented by Brian Stelter, it contains new interviews with astronauts and scientists, and accompanies the documentary feature Apollo 11, which is broadcast next week. (WarnerMedia Podcast Network / knit)
  • New episodes of the true crime podcast The Lady Vanishes have, themselves, vanished: after 2.5m downloads, the podcast is following up new leads. (7NEWS / Acast)
  • The Football History Dude looks at the 100 years of the NFL. Arnie Chapman is the 'dude' - he's currently interviewing Upton Bell, the son of the Philadelphia Eagles founder. (Powerpress)
  • This is Uncomfortable is a new weekly podcast about life in your 20’s and 30’s, and how money messes with it. Hosted by Reema Khrais, it digs into the unanticipated ways money affects relationships, shapes identities, and often defines what it means to be an adult. (Marketplace/APM)
  • Spectacular Failures launches today: a ten episode season of the most spectacular business failures of all time, and what could have been done to avoid them. The first episode focuses on Heritage USA, a Christian-themed theme park. (APM / Carlson School of Management)

Spotify gets a podcast redesign - and lets advertisers target listeners
  • Spotify's redesign, which gives music and podcasts equal parity in 'Your Library', is now being promoted on YouTube. (We're not seeing the feature yet.) They've also added Rob Riggle and Sarah Tiana, US comedians, to their roster.

  • The Brexitcast podcast will be aired on UK television, after the popular Question Time programme , it was announced at Podcast Day. The show will be relatively unchanged, being visualised by automated cameras in the radio studio where they record the show.
  • Enterprise podcast host ART19 has made a number of updates to their service, including a setting that allows publishers to block their podcast from appearing in Google Podcasts. (We spoke with a few publishers at Podcast Day - and it sounds like some want to remove podcast play buttons from appearing within Google search, while still allowing them in Google Podcasts itself. This option, however, would entirely remove podcasts from all Google products).

Opinion

As part of a comment in a Facebook group about how many downloads a new podcast has got, Dave Jackson makes this great observation:

Keep in mind there are SO many other ways to measure success than downloads (engagement, opportunities, friendships).

Podcasts

  • The Media Podcast has, in the latest episode, Steve Ackerman from production company Somethin'Else, and our Editor, talking about the UK's media news.
  • Fast Lane Podcast University has an excellently-produced interview in this episode with our Editor, discussing the changes that Google have made recently.
  • In Melbourne VIC, Australia, People Building Businesses has launched - the press release describes it as "a dual-platform podcast focusing on how companies grow" (it's also released in video form on YouTube). It's from YBF Ventures, a tech and innovation startup hub. (Omny Studio)

Record companies agree: podcasting helps music discovery
  • The BPI and Music Ally presented a report last night in London into podcasting, noting that millennials are driving the medium's growth. "20% of listening time among people between the ages of 15 and 24 was spent on podcasts, compared to 24% on live radio and 26% on music streaming." In a survey of record companies, 94% of respondents agreed with the view that podcasts help to promote music acts. The full report is here.

    • At the event it was also noted that "music rights are a disaster", with music podcasts being unable to play the very thing they're talking about.
  • How better to discover podcasts than... by colour. A strangely addictive tool from German podcast directory Fyyd.
  • CastChamp is a new service that promises "data on over 100,000 podcasts in one place, complete with audience type and contact info". The comments in this Reddit thread are probably worth reading.
