These are the 10 most listened to podcasts on Spotify Colombia this day

Considered one of the most “intimate” digital formats, podcasts have gained fame and have positioned themselves among the taste of the Colombian public as a result of the arrival of streaming platforms in the new millennium, such as Spotify.

Their boom was significant since the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, which forced most people to remain in confinement, who in turn began to experiment with different formats and channels to be informed and entertained.

Podcasts are audio products that are available through files or streaming platforms and one of their great advantages is that the user can listen to them whenever they want and as many times as they want.

However, the podcast is not something new, rather it is a product that enjoyed wide popularity at the beginning of the 21st century, but then he was relegated by the arrival of compact discs, ipods, among others.

However, its easy access, the wide genres and its diverse narratives have facilitated its new heyday and many companies have begun to bet on them again to reach more users.

Currently this type of productions have been well received in Colombia and proof of this are these 10 podcasts that are on everyone’s lips.

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.
