These podcasts top the list of the most played on Spotify Colombia

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.

1. In Depth With María Jimena Duzán

The excess of information that we receive and consume in Colombia has accustomed us to stick with what is superficial, with what is necessary. But as happens with the onion, you have to remove layer by layer, peeling one by one to get to the bottom and thus capture the essence of the facts without filters. This is what A Fondo is about, Maria Jimena Duzán’s podcast that you can listen to from Monday to Friday on Spotify.

what are podcasts

Podcasts have regained strength among users of streaming platforms, especially after the coronavirus pandemic (Spotify)

A podcast is an audio product that 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 particular 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.

Podcast vs Audiobooks

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.
