Ashley Carman’s scoop almost a month ago was correct - Office Ladies has moved from SiriusXM to Audacy in a deal which also covers The Lazy Genius Podcast. Terms weren’t given; the show launched in Oct 2019, and is a top 25 podcast in the US. Podcards, a podcast growth tool, has launched. The tool helps creators promote their shows, with campaign-level data showing how many people subscribed. Here’s our Podcard; it’s free to get started. As we mentioned on Jan 11, Overcast released a new, rewritten, version of the popular podcast app. Developer Marco Arment says it’ll be easier to add new features and iterate faster. The latest episode of the Accidental Tech Podcast dives into the detail. He also adds: “Try to get used to it for like a few days before you yell at me too much, please.” (We like it). Triton Digital released the Australian Podcast Ranker for June. Total downloads are down 6.2% month-on-month, and there were 16% fewer episodes published. There were 13% fewer weekdays in the month, though, thanks to the way calendars work. The ABC claims more shows in the top 200 than anyone else, while LiSTNR is the #1 sales network and iHeart is the #1 podcast publisher by listeners. The ranker measures participating publishers only. Meanwhile, in Q2 2024, Australian broadcast radio revenue increased by just 0.1%, while Australian digital audio revenue increased by 27.1%. However, digital audio revenue is just 12% the size of broadcast. Classifieds - your job or ad hereGetting less than 1,000 downloads per episode? — Download your FREE Podcast Growth Scorecard!

Lava for Good won Podcast Network of the Year. ARN’s iHeart and BlakCast has announced the winner of their Find and Tell podcast series. Ben Haywood’s story focuses on the question of indigenous languages heading towards extinction. The new UK culture minister, Lisa Nandy, appears to be against the idea of the BBC advertising in podcasts in the UK. However, the BBC has said that advertising won’t be placed in news content. The Audiosigma MikeHero DSP is a portable USB audio interface with a set of unique features, including a Denoiser as well as EQ - perfect, we’re told, for taking on the road. Captivate 2.5 was announced. The release offers unlimited networks for all podcasters, and a new look and feel. People News Stephen Perlstein has been made SVP of Publishing for Libsyn Ads.

Hey History! is Australia's first history podcast for the classroom, and aligns with the Grade 4 - 6 Australian curriculum; the website has learning materials, syllabus guides and resources. You can expect stories, music and immersive soundscapes, visit 'the oldest classroom', the Victorian goldfields, and experience life as a convict kid. Your Mom Is A Podcast launched a few months ago, but has only just made it to our busy editorial desk. The show has impressive guests... but it starts by talking to the people who know them best: their moms. Sob to the beat features a surprise special guest, bringing a song that sparks a particularly strong emotion for them - be it happiness, sadness, or anger - a particularly memory-inspiring song. Exploring that feeling and the song, the show, hosted by Emily Tresidder, launched today, with guest Annie Louey.

One of the most respected podcast consultants and trainers, Dave had worked with the Libsyn team for eight years. But it’s him, not them. “There is nothing wrong with Libsyn”, he said, adding “when you hear where I’m going you’ll see it’s simply a better fit for my educational skillset”. We get to find out where on Jul 29 - in, of course, the School of Podcasting podcast. Podcasting Made Simple Live is on Thursday from PodMatch - 13 virtual sessions including Q&A and a number of different speakers, including Alex Sanfilippo, the Buzzsprout team and Joe Casabona. The event is normally $97, but Podnews readers get in free.

Matt Medeiros says no, it absolutely isn’t; and podcast insiders keep getting V4V wrong. Writing a PWA or something browser-based for podcasting? Umbilical can help you - offering support for things that can’t be done in a browser. As one example of the above: we changed our directory episode pages - here’s Podnews Weekly Review, or Joe Rogan. The code pulls the RSS feed directly from the podcast host, and parses it in your browser so you get the latest. Yet, the RSS feed for, say, On the Media uses an insecure link via Feedburner, which stops a browser from requesting the feed - so we have to watch for that and proxy the feed instead. TrueFans has launched “SuperFeeds”, an enhanced version of RSS feeds with the new Podcasting 2.0 tags that podcast hosting companies leave out; and a full-screen chapter player. Tips and tricks We updated How to add your podcast to every podcast directory last week. Are you everywhere? Here’s where to look. Podcast News The Artist - A Killer’s Canvas is new today from Caloroga Shark Media. The show follows a serial killer over the course of a few decades.

This new show is hosted by California Governor Gavin Newsom, Super Bowl Champion Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch, and their friend and agent Doug Hendrickson. The podcast has been in development for more than a year; we're promised compelling and enlightening conversations. A collaboration between NPR and CBC, Tested launches today, examining the 100-year history of sex testing in elite sports. Elite female runners have been told they can no longer race as women because of their biology. As the Olympics approach, they face hard choices: take drugs to lower their natural testosterone levels, give up their sport entirely, or fight. Four years after the podcast stopped, it's back. In The Reggie Yates Podcast, Reggie reunites with his nearest and dearest friends Owen, Bubba, and Uzo to deliver a show about nothing until it isn't. From sports and pop culture to brotherhood and men's mental health, it returns with a special new episode today.

Podcast production company Lemonada Media is “exploring a sale”, according to a (subscriber-only) report in Axios. The company has hired an investment bank to speak with potential buyers. It’s raised $10.5mn so far. The piece also mentions that last month the company voluntarily recognised the WGAE’s Lemonada Media Union. Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard has signed with Wondery. The show became a Spotify exclusive in Jul 2021, becoming available everywhere in Aug 2023; the new deal starts on Sept 1 and will include video shows for the first time (and merch rights). Wondery+ subscribers will get it a week early. In the UK, 62% of audio ads feature accents from the South East of England; and only 2% of ads feature Welsh or Scottish accents.

The company normally has a 30 day waiting period; but publishers suggest a longer delay, resulting in lost revenue. Meanwhile, the abolition of the minimum price floor on Megaphone, which went into effect on 1 July, has meant many more ads in some hosted shows - resulting in a significant number of complaints to Spotify from listeners about ads (here, here, here, here, and here). Given the choice of “go big or go home”, the popular business podcast Acquired has chosen to go big - an arena show at Chase Center in San Francisco on Sep 10. Their special guest will be Mark Zuckerberg. In the US, consumers say they don’t mind hearing an ad twice in a day; but three times or more is annoying. But, podcast ads work better than billboards, video ads or ads on social media, says Unlocking the Power of Audio Ads, a study from Veritonic. The UK’s PRS is launching a new podcast music licence early next month and has published the results of consultation with the industry. However, the licence does not cover the use of recordings (a “sync” licence) from record labels and publishers, which is through PPL in the country. (It also doesn’t include video podcasts). Podcast Day Asia, powered by Podnews, has announced a set of new speakers, including 1Up Media’s Guang Jin Yeo; Podchaser’s Norman Chella; and Audacia Audio’s Kym Treasure. The event is in KL, Malaysia, on Sep 3 - code PODN10 saves money.
