Another exclusive for Spotify

LISTEN · · 4.1 minutes to read

In this week’s Podnews Weekly Review with Buzzsprout, Sam Sethi interviews Jay LeBoeuf from Descript, after the launch of a new version of the editing software and another funding round.

  • Spotify has signed another exclusive: Anything Goes with Emma Chamberlain, described as one of the world’s most listened-to podcasts, will be exclusive on Spotify early next year. The deal includes video podcasts. The show was with UTA and Cadence13's Ramble Podcast Network, and is another loss for owner Audacy which is threatened with stock market de-listing.

  • The Infinite Dial New Zealand was published by Edison Research. 39% of adults in the country are monthly podcast listeners, placing them (just) above the US. 30% are weekly podcast listeners; and radio continues to do particularly well in the country.

  • Dan Misener at Bumper has looked at the new topics that Apple Podcasts is automatically allocating to shows (see our coverage on Nov 15, including our topics viewer). He’s produced a number of network maps, designed to show links between different shows; and produced episode topic maps for every category in Apple Podcasts.
