Music podcasts are increasingly being consumed and the demand for content more pressing. What is it specifically about non-linear music podcasts that audiences are looking for and how do we keep the content relevant and engaging? This session looks at strategies in producing and drumming up ideas for music podcasts; what makes them distinctive for on-demand listening, and how do they keep audiences engaged? What formats are most successful and what are the current trends? We look at different podcast strategies with producers and commissioners who exchange thoughts and showcase their own exciting initiatives.
