What makes podcasts so useful?
Podcasts are a great (and inexpensive) way to share content and it’s also an easy way to stay up to date with the latest breaking news, trends and current hot topics. There is a great variety of content shared on podcasts and brands can really engage with their audience on a meaningful level.
Its flexible format makes it convenient for people who are constantly on the move to engage with the content that they are interested in. Depending on the device you use (mobile phone, iPod, MP3-player, PC, laptop, tablet etc.) you can listen to it anywhere, anytime and at your own leisure.
