CES brings new platforms for podcasts

January 9, 2019 · 3.6 minutes to read

The “featured this week” list on the site is an editorial decision made combining and crossing these following elements: a) New shows made in the last 2 months; b) Most downloaded shows of the last two months; c) Best episode performances of the last 2/3 episodes. After matching these elements, the content team listens to the podcasts and picks the ones that have the strongest listener engagement and the nicest covers. They avoid the ones that contain any form of hate or intolerance and try their best to promote the less represented voices in contemporary podcasting.
