In this article we take a look at Podcasting, previously known as “audio blogging”, got its roots dating back to the 1980s.

With the advent of broadband Internet access and portable digital audio playback devices such as the iPod, podcasting began to take hold in 2004. This was then developed by former MTV video jockey Adam Curry and software developer Dave Winer.

Adam Curry wrote a program, called iPodder, that enabled him to automatically download Internet radio broadcasts to his iPod. Developers improved upon his idea, and podcasting was officially born.

I recently came to this survey conducted by National Public Radio noted that, five years ago, 80% of the U.S. population’s listening hours were spent on music, with 20% dedicated to the spoken word; this past year, music’s share is down to 76%, with spoken word growing to 24%.

Credit the latter’s growth in part to the podcast boom. With the birth of the “podcast”, it's really interesting to see how this medium can work.

This leads me onto the recent podcast I was asked to be part of talking about — Music Navigation in the 21st century for a NEW artist, with my colleague Mark Jennings

In each episode two, music industry professionals discuss in depth an area of the music industry they are passionate about and have an intimate knowledge of.

This podcast covers areas of navigation from; Touring, Record deals, Promotions and being persistent with drive, all the way to reach your goals.

Part 1 is below, I will be sharing Part 2 new week to look further at this area.

Part 1 — Exploring Music Podcast Episode — Music Industry Navigation for New Artists Part 01 of 02 with Peter Moore and Mark Jennings

“I felt, it was really important to provide up and coming artists with positive but real information about the changing and challenging entertainment industry of today, with a relaxed and informative discussion about the — Navigation of the music industry”.

“There are so many elements of the industry, it took me a good few years to get a handle on the music industry, so you can find your own way to navigate through this can be a challenge but I believe knowledge is power and the more knowledge and experience you gain, the better-informed decisions you can make — especially with the current situation with Covid-19 this is even more important”.

Thank you for taking the time to take a listen to the above podcast’s. For any people who are looking to get into the industry whether it's on the creative or business side I hope it has sparked your interest further, and for new artists/bands — I hope it has helped you navigate the music industry just that little bit better.

Wishing you all great success in your music endeavours.
