Spotify Podcast Charts, Celebrity Pods & Transcripts

This week Stav and Mo are back to have another conversation about all things podcasts. With the launch of the Spotify Podcast Chart, the duo discusses rankings, listener numbers and audience retention. As well as checking where their respective podcasts rank in the charts (Top of the Pops style). What does this mean for podcasters and how do they measure up against the competition?

Continuing the Spotify conversation Stav & Mo, explore the implications of video content now being available on the platform, which will include allowing the audience to watch video podcasts. How will this impact YouTube and does this indicate a growing importance for video content within the podcast space?

Celebrity podcasts are growing rapidly, but can the celebrities leverage and transfer their fanbase into new podcast consumers? Most recent example is the launch of Michelle Obama’s show about relationships and health issues.

To transcribe or not to transcribe? Now that is the question. Transcripts can help a great deal with search engine optimization (SEO) and podcast discovery, but also opens up your content to a wider audience, which may include the deaf or those with a hearing impairment. So, we discuss inclusivity and supporting accessibility within the podcast space.

Honest, open and practical advice from two podcasters that love what they do, have made mistakes and learned some lessons along the way.
