Whether it is about health, sports, politics, culture and entertainment, this format has also regained its fame among the Argentine public, although not all genres enjoy the same acceptance.

*Some titles may not have a description because the platform does not provide it.
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 such as the #EnCasaDeMara podcast where he asks questions of 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 The Guardian journalist Ben Hammersley in an article in which he talked about how economically viable it was to make a radio show online and access it 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.
the swedish company 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 and the heyday of this type of production, which became one of the favorite formats of the 2022.
In the last year, Spotify’s podcast offer expanded into new markets and registered the existence of more than four million podcasts, although few managed to leave a greater mark in 2022 and become the most popular.
Worldwide, the title that led the ranking of the most reproduced was The Joe Rogan Experiencewhich also added its third consecutive year as the favorite podcast.
In the list of the most listened to he was followed by Call Her Daddy by Alex Cooper; on the third step is located Anything Goes with Emma Chamberlaina future Spotify exclusive that touches on a variety of tracks from the popular American creator.
The Chilean audio series Case 63 It was one of those that managed to lead the ranking of the most reproduced for weeks and earned fourth place worldwide. This Spanish podcast was even dubbed into Portuguese, Brazilian, Hindi and English.
On the fifth rung is the true crime podcast called Crime Junkie Voiced by Ashley Flowers and Brit Prawat.
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.
