January 24, 2020 · 2.4 minutes to read
The European Radio Show, currently underway in Paris, France, has a surprisingly vibrant Pod Village: an area with exhibitors from mainly French podcast companies. The area also has a demonstration theatre - when we walked past, we saw Podcastics demonstrating “lien magique”, magic subscription links. There was also a conference track of podcast topics, open to everyone, with speakers and panels: we saw Declan Moore from Wondery explain their strategy. Podnews’s Editor, James Cridland, gave a keynote: “ten things radio can learn from podcasting”. The event continues today and tomorrow.

|From the new book Make Noise by Eric Nuzum, available now|
"There is an old bromide in radio that tells announcers and disc jockeys to phrase everything like they are speaking to only one person. It builds connection, makes the listener feel like they are a part of things. It demonstrates empathy. I’d argue that podcasting’s need for an intimate one-on-one connection is ten times as important." - read more
