What are podcasts
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.
Spotify in Peru
It was on December 12, 2013 when the streaming music platform arrived in Peru, being the country number 55 on its list. At first it offered a catalog of 20 million songs.

Podcast vs Audiobooks
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.
