The importance of sound quality in next-generation podcasting
We live in an age of audio. At last count, there were 700,000 podcasts worldwide competing for our attention. And the numbers of people listening are rising sharply. What do podcast offer that we don’t find in other media? It’s a democratic space, and new tech has allowed everyone to produce and publish. But production value, and especially sound quality is important if you want to rise above this vast ocean of pods. This talk will outline the many forms and concepts emerging now in podcasting. And focus on why sound quality is crucial when you want to engage your listeners, and get them to keep listening.
