It's a podcast watchfest as we link to catchup videos from Nextradio, OzPod, Radio Days Europe and International Podcast Day. Also Google, Facebook and Instagram all doing interesting things with audio.

  • Watch this year's NextRadio sessions from last month's London conference at https://next.radio/.
  • Leo La Porte's weekly webshow "TWIG - This Week In Google" featured the Chief Digital Writer for the Columbia Journalism Review Matthew Ingram, talking about his recent article ""The podcast bubble is bursting".
  • In a week's time, the BBC will be launching a new podcast called Multi Story. It offers a collection of personal stories following a different theme each week handpicked from audio that has previously aired on Local Radio stations. Go to http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts
  • Google is launching a "Google Podcasts" Creator program. Applications are welcomed till mid November and the first round kicks off in January 2019. It'll partner with US non-profit Public Radio Exchange - PRX - , which alongside a global advisory committee, will select teams to receive mentorship, seed funding, and an intensive 20-week training course. You can learn more and apply to the program on PRX’s Google Podcasts creator program website. https://googlecp.prx.org

 

 

  • Spotify had released a Podcast Creators portal. The big change for self-hosted  podcasters - which there are still a LOT of - is that they can now ALSO get their podcasts onto Spotify. They’re NOT hosting the audio files themselves, just enabling syndication for the shows. The new portal is at https://podcasters.spotify.com/

TOOLTIP

Moviepro is an app for iOS which allows you to select Bluetooth earphones as the audio source. It's paid and available at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/moviepro-video-recorder/id547101144?mt=8
