SoundCloud podcasts stop working

LISTEN · · 3.3 minutes to read
  • Podcasts hosted on SoundCloud have, for the past week, not been appearing on Apple Podcasts and Google Podcasts. Multiple podcasters have reported the issue but we understand it doesn’t appear to be fixed.

  • Radio France podcasts will be available on Amazon Music, after an agreement was signed between the two companies. Like other third-party platforms, Amazon Music gets daily shows from Radio France for 7 days, and weekly shows for 30 days, before they become exclusives in the Radio France app.

  • The UK government is reportedly blocking The Rest is Politics, a popular political podcast, from being downloaded using a government department’s wifi. The podcast, hosted by two former political figures, is regularly critical of the government’s record.

Rumours

We hear that The Daily Wire has been actively looking for new podcast ad-sales partners for their network, which could be set to replace Cumulus Media. It has been suggested that yesterday’s statement from Cumulus supporting the Daily Wire by pulling out of Podcast Movement could merely be to appease an important sales relationship.

Further - we’ve also been made aware that the majority of programming being promoted by Cumulus Media’s Westwood One radio syndication company might be designed to communicate that it is a safe harbour for the far right.

So, perhaps, it’s been suggested to us, the company’s statement is merely marketing - and not, after all, the commitment to inclusion that it purports to be.
