The opportunity for brands and advertisers in the podcasting space is very healthy as Australian audiences become increasingly aware of the new medium. We speak with Corey Layton of Whooshkaa, who’s very upbeat about the industry and how companies can be creative in conversing with new and existing markets. Corey – and many of the Whooshkaa team – is from a radio background; and, although similarities exist between radio and podcasting, he explains why a radio-type advertisement in a podcast simply doesn’t work.
Also this episode we speak with Castaway Awards judge Sophie Kneebone who offers her thoughts on why podcasting resonates so deeply with listeners and why it’s so attractive for advertisers right now. She also looks at what the future of the industry might bring for podcasters and audiences alike.
