Podcast promotion in the wild


Hamish & Andy
The good folks at LiSTNR are doing trade marketing by promoting themselves as individuals, and the shows they love listening to. “Personalisation is part of LiSTNR’s DNA”, says the release. Oddly, all the individuals love Hamish and Andy, the company’s #1 podcast; but we do as well, so that’s all OK.LiSTNR
The Trial of Lucy Letby
Correction: Yesterday, we said The Trial of Lucy Letby hadn’t made it to #1, as the Daily Mail had claimed it had. In fact, we were misled by Spotify’s Chartable, which lists the podcast twice. The “other” podcast had, in fact, hit #1 as the Mail had claimed.Chartable
