What’s in the Podnews Report Card?

LISTEN · · 1.7 minutes to read
  • Our Editor James Cridland shared the results of the Podnews Report Card at Podcast Movement. We’ll have this data in full in Monday’s Podnews; but overall, Apple has increased its lead over Spotify as the most favoured podcast platform used by podcast creators. YouTube is eagerly awaited by many publishers; and Google Podcasts saw a disappointing fall in ratings from those in the industry.

  • A free podcast transcription tool has been launched. It runs entirely on your own local device (“for the highest privacy and security”), the company says; it uses whisper.cpp’s “tiny” model. It’s powered by Spreaker, though you don’t need to be a customer to use it. It hosts the SRT file itself, which is ideal to add it to your RSS feed.

  • Acast spoke at Podcast Movement about how the company uses geo-targeting to safely serve ads for sports betting only in locations where it’s legal.

We’ll be back with our usual length Podnews on Monday.
