From sports and entertainment to cooking, daily news, and beyond, there’s a podcast out there for everyone! In fact, studies show that 75% of the U.S. population over 12 years old have listened to online audio in the last month, and podcasting has reached its highest numbers ever, with 90 million Americans reporting that they listen to podcasts weekly.
As a leader in connected audio technologies, we started sharing our expertise about all things audio by inviting legends of the music business – including JBL Ambassadors Martin Garrix, A.R. Rahman, and many others – to join us on our Audio Talks podcast and share an insider’s look at the music industry. After seven seasons, we’ve covered everything from the potential of immersive audio to social media’s impact on music, AI in audio, the resurgence of vinyl, and more.
