Adobe Podcast Beta… is it any good?

LISTEN · · 2.4 minutes to read
  • In Dec 2021, Adobe revealed Project Shasta, which we noticed in Oct 2022 had rebranded to Adobe Express Podcast. It’s now branded Adobe Podcast beta, and offers a mix of Descript-like “Edit words, not waveforms”, SquadCast-like “Remote recording”, and Auphonic-like “AI-powered audio” - and there’s a waitlist on the website. But how does it compare to the market leaders? From Castos, Matt Medeiros gives it a full review.

Podcast ads in the wild

Baffled poster

In fashionable Camden High Street in London, close to the tube station, an ad for Create’s Baffled: Amazing Facts That Are Complete Nonsense adorns a telephone box. We like the ad creative - it’s super-clear that it’s a podcast, and super-clear what you’ll get. Your Editor, who’s a Londoner, notes with approval that Camden Council made this street just one lane in 2009: lots more space for people.
