A podcast is an audio product which has a defined periodicity and can be made up of several episodes, although it has its origins in the radio, currently those who like this format can find it on internet pages or streaming platforms such as Spotify.

Although podcasts began as a discussion between several participants on a specific topic, over time the ways of doing them have been diversifying and now it can be a person speaking or a group, likewise, they are not only used as a space to exchange points of view, but also encompass genres of interview like the podcast #AtCasaDeMara where he asks questions to various characters such as edy smoleither fictionas it happens with the suspense story of the chilean podcast case 63or deal with science, politics, journalism, welfare, among others.

The word “podcast” was first used on February 12, 2004 by journalist Ben Hammersley from Guardian in an article in which he talked about how economically viable it was to make an online radio program and access them whenever users want.

Although there are various debates about when the first podcast in history emerged, there are several experts who have pointed out that the idea was clear since the creation of the podcast. Thomas Alva Edison’s phonograph in 1870when the intellectuals of the time such as Philip Hubert, Octave Uzanne or Edward Bellamy predicted that people would end up “reading with their eyes closed” books, newspapers and magazines and even mothers would stop snoring telling stories to children before going to sleep.

Spotify keys

Spotify has become one of the most competitive streaming platforms. (Spotify)

born in 2006the Swedish company formally began its activities in Europe on October 7, 2008 and little by little it has had a presence throughout the world, being currently in 187 countries and offering music from more than seven million artists.

Today the streaming platform has agreements with Universal Music, Sony Music, EMI Music, Hollywood Records, Interscope Records, Warner Musicamong other.

In terms of podcast, Spotify announced in November 2020 the purchase and acquisition of the advertising and podcast platform mega phone for 235 million dollars, which was used for the monetization of audios.

According to figures published by Spotify, in 2019 it had 217 million subscribers, which in 2020 increased to 345 million and that in 2021, despite the pandemic, they reached 365 million subscribersof which about 50% are paying customers, while they now number 433 million users.

As a model, Spotify has raised pay artists from your catalog a fixed price per song or album sold and gives royalties based on the amount of artist plays in proportion to the total songs streamed, unlike its competitors, who pay for physical sales or downloads.

In addition, the 70% of your total income they go to copyright holders, mostly record labels, who then pay artists based on their individual contracts.

It should be noted that currently anyone can enjoy the Spotify free serviceas long as you’re willing to put up with ads and with restrictions like not being able to skip some songs.

strong competition

The coronavirus pandemic not only benefited podcasts by increasing their number of users, but also audiobooks also added more consumers on various platforms, including Spotify, as it is estimated that they can leave annual profits of up to 70 billion dollars.

The streaming platform, where audiobooks have been growing by 20%has turned to book narration with the voices of Hollywood celebrities.

Its rise could also be due to criticism of the ease with which the platform has allowed podcasters to speak, falling into errors of misinformation in the midst of a pandemic, as was the case with Joe Roganwhich also caused the company to lose up to 2.1 million dollars.
