If you think podcast discovery is a problem today, imagine the scale of the problem in 2026 (to pick an arbitrary date).
I don't think the current model employed by Apple is scaleable. And I don't think that the same solutions that work for Amazon, Netflix or Medium are immediately applicable.
Worse, I don't think technology and algorithms save us. Because while I agree that podcast recommendations is a big data problem, we don't have enough data to solve it. Catch-22, for sure.
In this episode, I bring up more questions than I provide answers. Such is the nature of pontificating on the nebulous thing we call the future, right?
I make shows for professional firms that support business objectives. Visit https://podcastlaunch.pro for more info and ways to get in touch!
