Next week we’ll be heading towards the Podcast Movement, where we’ll have quite the busy schedule between being involved in various panels and live streaming thanks to our own Rob Greenlee.

Francesco Baschieri, Spreaker’s founder and CEO, will be presenting the session “Fear, Energy and Power of Live Audio Streaming“,  and Rob Greenlee is currently scheduled as moderator for the panel discussion “Podcasting: Present, Past and Future” as well as be participating in “Podcasts Advertising Standards“.

We’ll keep you informed on our every move, but in the meantime we had the chance to talk to another podcasting giant set to take the stage in Forth Worth.

Lou Mongello, with his more than 10 years of podcasting experience, brings us our second round of Q&As as we wait for the Podcast Movement to begin.

Who listens to Podcasts? Here’s new data from Edison Research

The first step to better targeting your podcast is understanding who the potential consumers of the medium you’re using are. If you know which particular market you’re talking to, you can approach your content with more awareness and communicate with your audience more effectively.

On June 25, Edison Research published all their podcast-related survey data from The Infinite Dial 2015, giving us a fully comprehensive view of who is really listening to podcasts.

Podcast listeners are more affluent than the general population (36% have a household income greater than $75,000), and have education beyond high school. A decade ago, it was primarily males who would listen in. In 2015, that number is now evenly split with 50% men, 50% women. Looking at age, there doesn’t seem to be a huge difference among age groups, with even teenagers making up a slice of podcast consumers.

Smartphone ownership has been found to be a major factor in the consumption of podcasts; currently 22% of smartphone users listened to a podcast in the last month. Additionally, nearly two-thirds of all podcasts are listened to on mobile devices over desktop computers.

Brands will find interesting data in the activity of podcast users on social media: it seems they use the platforms multiple times per day.

A fully detailed description of the research can be find on Rainnews.

Spreaker is sponsoring the Web Radio Festival in Rome!

webradiofestival (1)

More than one hundred years ago, the Italian scientist and inventor Guglielmo Marconi developed the first effective radio communication system. In 1901, he successfully sent wireless signals across the Atlantic Ocean, disproving the dominant belief of the Earth’s curvature affecting transmission.

Many years have passed since that first amazing scientific discovery, and now that Web Radio Festival is about to start in Rome, I can already anticipate that magic feeling I’ll get on meeting Elettra Marconi, the daughter of the man who can be considered the Father of Radio.

Have you ever wanted to escape reality and forget about all the trouble that is happening in the world. Here’s the solution if you like comedy. Let me introduce to you ‘If I Were You’ with Jake Hurwitz and Amir Blumenfeld. They are two long time friends that like to give advice to listeners about areas they’re qualified to talk about and areas they aren’t. As they read the emails you never know what rabbit hole the guys will go in with their personal stories. Jake and Amir come from a comedy web series called Jake and Amir that started on May 23, 2007 and they played as themselves. The comic duo might be a little too explicit for the ears but hey it’s comedy we all need a laugh.
