what is a podcast
A podcast is an audio product which has a defined periodicity and can be made up of several episodes, although it has its origins on the radio, currently those who like this format can find it on internet pages or streaming platforms such as Spotify.
Although podcasts began as a discussion among several participants on a specific topic, with the passage of time the ways of doing them have diversified and now one person or a group can be speaking, likewise, they are not only used as a space to exchange points of view, but also encompass genres of interview like the podcast #AtCasaDeMara where he asks questions to various characters such as edy smoleither fictionas it happens with the suspense story of the chilean podcast case 63or deal with issues of science, politics, journalism, well-being, among others.
The word “podcast” was first used on February 12, 2004. by journalist Ben Hammersley of Guardian in an article in which he talked about how economically viable it was to make a radio program online and access them whenever users wanted.
Although there are various debates about when the first podcast in history emerged, several experts have pointed out that the idea was clear since the creation of the Thomas Alva Edison’s phonograph in 1870when the intellectuals of the time such as Philip Hubert, Octave Uzanne or Edward Bellamy predicted that people would end up “reading books, newspapers and magazines with their eyes closed” and even mothers would stop snoring telling children stories before going to sleep.
Born in 2006the Swedish company formally began its activities in Europe on October 7, 2008 and little by little it has been having a presence throughout the world, currently being in 187 countries and offering music from more than seven million artists.
Today the streaming platform has agreements with record labels such as Universal Music, Sony Music, EMI Music, Hollywood Records, Interscope Records, Warner Musicamong other.
In terms of podcasts, Spotify announced in November 2020 the purchase and acquisition of the advertising and podcast platform Megaphone for 235 million dollars, which served for the monetization of audios.
According to the figures published by Spotify, in 2019 it had 217 million subscribers, which in 2020 increased to 345 million and In 2021, despite the pandemic, they reached 365 million subscribersof which close to 50% are paying customers, while now there are already 433 million users.
As a model, Spotify has raised pay artists in your catalog a fixed price per song or album sold and pays royalties based on the number of artist streams in proportion to total songs streamed, unlike its competitors, who pay for physical sales or downloads.
Also, the 70% of your total income they go to copyright holders, mostly record labels, who then pay artists based on their individual contracts.
It should be noted that currently anyone can enjoy the Spotify free serviceas long as you’re willing to put up with ads and with restrictions like not being able to skip some songs.
a strong competitor
The coronavirus pandemic not only benefited podcasts by increasing their number of users, but also audiobooks also added more consumers on various platforms, including Spotify, since it is estimated that they can leave annual profits of up to 70 billion dollars.
The streaming platform, where audiobooks have been growing by 20%has turned to book narration with the voices of Hollywood celebrities.
Its rise could also be due to criticism of the ease with which the platform has allowed podcasters to speak, falling into misinformation errors in the midst of a pandemic, as was the case with Joe Roganwhich also made the company lose up to 2.1 million dollars.
