Fi Glover and Jane Garvey to speak at Podcast Day 24

LISTEN · · 2.9 minutes to read
  • After announcing a move to Times Radio earlier this week, podcast and radio presenters Jane Garvey and Fi Glover have been confirmed as speakers for next Tuesday’s Podcast Day 24 in London. Podcast Day 24 in Sydney will also include Spotify’s new signings Toni and Ryan, and Waleed Aly. Tickets to each event include catchup from the other side of the planet: PODN1215 will get you around half price.

  • Those purchased podcast plays are all OK, it seems. After yesterday’s news that iHeartMedia and others have been purchasing podcast plays in game apps, Podtrac tells us: “We decided not to filter these downloads as they are consistent with the latest IAB guidelines. It’s our understanding they appear as browser traffic without a unique user agent (or [unique] IP address). These downloads don’t have a material impact on the publisher rankings including the rank order of the top publishers.”

  • Acast has published research on podcast listening in Asia, looking at Hong Kong, Singapore, and Japan. 90% of listeners finish all or most of a podcast episode, and 70% say they’re most focused when consuming podcasts rather than other media.

Moves and hires

  • Michael Holt is one of three senior leadership hires at Voiceworks Sport, as Director of Commercial Partnerships. He has more than twenty years experience in audio and TV. The company also welcomed Stefan Doyle as Head of Sport Social and Richard Herrick as Sport Partnerships Director.
