What will happen in your session?

we will introduce how their decentralised distribution model means today currently anyone can host a podcast or build the next podcast app. But for how long? Built on the same distributed format as Google Reader will the current podcast system suffer a similar fate?

Flash forward to 2020 we will imagine how a dominant centralised podcast provider might change things
how imagine how an improved decentralised system would benefit producers and consumers alike

...back in 2018 we know it can be difficult in the decentralised podcast world to get good recommendations, so we will also have a chance to share our favourite podcasts and what we love about them!

What is the goal or outcome of your session?

Participants should gain an appreciation for both the challenges and benefits of the current podcast system and come up with their own ideas for how they'd like to improve things. They should also come away with a better understanding of the points of view of different parts of the podcast ecosystem; the content makers, advertisers and podcast apps.
