The effect of corporate dollars on podcasting

LISTEN · · 3.4 minutes to read
  • “What I was naïve to - and perhaps we all were - is that corporate dollars will inherently change how we do things, how we make things, what gets made, why things get made. I saw a lot of that money that people were investing in podcasts was going towards people who hadn’t made podcasts - and then they hired the people who had made them to work for those people. And now, however, many years later, the rent is due and it didn’t pan out.” Rebecca Sananès is on the Podnews Weekly Review this week, following her article in Vanity Fair; you’ll hear how she was hired to work with Harry and Meghan, why there aren’t enough women in podcasting, and what she wants to do next.

  • Edison Research revealed the Kids Podcast Listener Report. 29% of kids aged 6-12, in the US, are monthly podcast listeners. 87% of them have shared something they learned from a podcast with others. The report is free to download.
