Podcast promotion in the wild

From the Oasthouse S3

Seen by Podnews reader Katie on the London Underground, Audible is marketing series three of the Steve Coogan podcast From The Oasthouse, The Alan Partridge Podcast. An “Oast house” (two words) is a building in Southern England designed to dry hops, the chief ingredient of beer, apart from water that is, which we guess is really the chief ingredient of beer come to think of it. Here are some pictures of oast houses that we can’t afford to buy from Alamy.

Audible Podnews

Podcast promotion in the wild is our series showing podcasts being promoted on poster sites, in tube trains, on aeroplanes, those stickers in the gents, on t-shirts, postcards and all kinds of other places, reaching the 58% of people who don’t listen to podcasts at least once a month, because that’s where the real growth is. It also lets us write things about beer and/or oast houses. Send any you spot (podcast promotion, not oast houses) to or just hit reply.
