True-crime podcast 'plagiarised' by newspaper; actors love audio drama podcasts
September 23, 2019 · 2.7 minutes to read
Plagiarism, even accidental, isn’t a podcast-only problem. The Sunday Times from The Western Australian, a newspaper in Perth WA, Australia, has “spoken to” a fugitive hacker, posting a full-page article accompanied by a photograph of a man with an awful old-fashioned haircut. The only problem? They didn’t. All 23 quotes with the 'hacker’ in question were in a story from Darknet Diaries which was not credited in the piece. “And that haircut hasn’t been rocked for many many years”, adds the hacker himself, who also confirms he’s not spoken to the newspaper. The newspaper, published by Seven West Media, has told Podnews that it was the result of a “production error”, and has fixed the paywalled online version.
Audio drama podcasts are interesting to famous actors because it lets them escape from typecasting, and they are less time-consuming, according to Carrie Coon in this piece, first carried in the New York Times but visible to everyone in The Independent.
5 million people in the Netherlands listen to podcasts, according to new research, “a quarter of whom have a subscription”. Interestingly, most podcasts are listened-to via music services (Spotify, Deezer) or via the app or website of a radio station. They listen for 41 minutes per day (radio is 144 minutes a day).

Correction: on Friday, we said that “podcasts on Megaphone were unavailable for three hours”, linking to their status report called CMS and feeds unavailable, which initially noted that “RSS feeds are currently unavailable”. Megaphone have asked us to point out that this really meant that new RSS feeds were unable to be published, but RSS feeds were available as normal to listeners. We’re grateful for the clarification.
