3 Green Podcasts for Earth Day

In the 60s Paul McCartney sang “Sit beside a mountain stream / see her waters rise/ Listen to the pretty sound of music as she flies.” Today, we could replace “music” with “podcasts” to give it an updated 2000s feel without taking away from its feeling and message. Listening to podcasts instead of songs can be somewhat soothing, bring you back into the moment, and allow you to better enjoy your surroundings.

So, here are our suggestions for celebrating #EarthDay: not a list of movies to watch or rules to follow, but just some hints on what to listen to while you’re going through the motions of your daily routine, to really celebrate and respect mother nature.

Is 2016 the year of Podcast Advertising?

2016 is definitely the year of podcast advertising, especially considering our partnership with Triton Digital announced back in December. Even if it still has to scale before it becomes mainstream, big Internet brands like MailChimp and Amazon, along with plenty of startups like underwear brand Mack Weldon, have been using ads to pursue new customers through podcasts.

According to estimates from ZenithOptimedia, ad spending on podcasts in the U.S. could hit $35.1 million in 2016. That’s only 0.06 percent of all digital ad spending, but some say that estimate is low and that it could go as high as $50 million this year. – via adweek.com

Interview: Paul Spain, Coordinator of the Asia Pacific Podcast Conference

Paul is founder and CEO at Gorilla Technology, coordinator of the Asia Pacific Podcast Conference and is building a podcast network focused on the Asia Pacific region. The NZ Tech Podcast, which Paul co-founded, reached #1 overall on iTunes in New Zealand by its 3rd episode – and his NZ Business Podcast saw similar success. His first taste of having his voice recorded was on a reel-to-reel audio tape aged 5. He’s also run a pre-Facebook global social network (WorldDJ.com) which reached over 300,000 members, and has appeared dozens of times on TV along with radio and both local and international podcasters.

With a deep interest in technology, Paul Spain has been involved in many aspects of digital media over the last 25 years. He’s coordinator of the next Asia Pacific Podcast Conference that will take place on February 12th – 13th in Auckland, New Zealand. Here’s the interview we conducted:

What do you think is the most common trouble new podcasters run into? And what do they have to do to prevent or fix it?

I commonly come across quality podcasts, that have failed to obtain the attention and audience they deserve. This is usually due to a combination of factors – such as lack of focus on the audience and building a community, inadequate promotion and even poor naming of the podcast. Seeking support and coaching from experts can help with getting much better results.
