This week ADLANDIA hangs with audio veteran + Panoply's Chief Content Officer (aka our version of the #podfather), Andy Bowers. He chatted with Laura + Alexa about the rise of podcasting, experimenting with subscription models (insert kid's pod network: Pinna) and his thoughts on how tech unlocks the key to audio scale (but didn't think it would take this long!). He also divulges why he wishes the word podcast could be killed and shares a delightful version of his kid-friendly podcast character, Sugar Monster, in this week's #KillBuyDIY. Plus Laura and Alexa jam about the difference between branded content and content (what's the big friggen difference?!) along with heightened accountability around investing in a brand's promise.
