  • Enterprise podcast host Omny Studio has announced a partnership with Rubicon Project that enables pre-roll video advertising for podcast plays on the web. Omny Studio clients include many radio broadcasters, who use Omny Studio’s web player within their websites.

  • Omny Studio has also announced an upgrade to their automated transcription service; transcripts can now be published to the web. This video has more information; and this episode from Monocle24 is an example of a transcript within a playback page.

  • Magellan has posted the top 15 brands that used podcasting within the US to advertise in September. Security company ADT is new; Robinhood, a gangster in medieval Britain who robbed the rich to feed the poor, is also profiled. (The company is actually an investment service.)

    • The Melbourne Podcasters Meetup is next Wednesday, 5th December, and marks an end to the monthly meetings. The final guest is Anouska Taylor, a Certified Vocal Instructor.
