    22. Podcast Movement, Ambies & AI and The Infinite Dial Review

    Experience the power of podcasting with Podcasting Power Hour – the only podcasting show that brings you the latest news, insights, and updates from the world's leading podcasters.

    We learned about Edison Research Infinite Dial 2023 Report from Podcasting Power Hour. Dave Jackson and James Cridland discussed Podcast Movement and its potential as a B2B conference, as well as the Pod News Report Card and data from Podbean. The data showed that Apple users listen to more episodes per month than Spotify users, but Spotify is introducing an auto podcast playback feature which could benefit podcasters. Michelle Jackson noted that it felt smaller and the Ambies were amazing.

    "Be sure you don't sign the rights to your own content away over to someone - make sure you own your brand."

    In this episode, you will learn the following:
    1. What did podcasting experts learn at Podcast Movement?
    2. How is Spotify's new "Auto Podcast Playback" feature affecting the podcast industry?
    3. What should podcasters be aware of when signing with a network like IHeartRadio?

    13. The Struggle to Be Heard: Why Audio-Only Podcasters Shouldn't Ignore Video

    13. The Struggle to Be Heard: Why Audio-Only Podcasters Shouldn't Ignore Video

    In Podcasting Power Hour, Jeff Townsend and his panel of experts tackle your questions on podcasting each week.

    "I just knocked over a Barbie metal lunch box filled with bracelets, and I've been cursing loudly up until this point."

    I'm the host of Podcasting Power Hour, and every week we tackle questions from listeners about podcasting. This week, we're talking about video. I've started posting short videos on YouTube and TikTok, and I'm curious to see how they perform. Our panel of experts is divided on the issue – some think video is a great way to reach new audiences, while others think it's not worth the effort. Personally, I'm still on the fence. I think it depends on the platform and the type of content you're creating. In any case, it's important to remember that it takes time to build an audience on any platform, so don't expect overnight success.

    In this episode, you will learn the following:
    1. The pros and cons of repurposing audio content for video platforms
    2. The best ways to create video content for specific video platforms
    3. The impact of video on discoverability and SEO

    10. The Future of Podcasting with Dave Jones of Podcasting 2.0 and The Podcast Index

    10. The Future of Podcasting with Dave Jones of Podcasting 2.0 and The Podcast Index

    The panel discusses Dave Jones's work with the podcast index, a searchable database of podcast episodes. They also discuss his experience as a podcaster, and how he got involved in the industry.

    Highlights
    Adam Curry and Dave Winer met 12 years ago while working on a project called the AECT for poets. They later spun out of that project to create the Freedom controller, which became the basis for Adam's no agenda show. The podcast index is the first product that they launched together. It is a way to collect and read RSS feeds.

    The podcast index is a free API for app developers to use to write podcast apps. The podcasting 2.0 side of things is just our effort to push podcasting forward, feature wise, to build crazy new stuff that will eventually end up in every player and hosting company, as new features that are not bound behind some huge company like Spotify or Apple.

    Apple and Spotify will both adopt podcasting 2.0 features for different reasons. Apple will do so because it is ultimately good for their customers, while Spotify will see the benefits of adopting these features without having to incur the costs.
