A new digital future for radio

Radio, considered to be a traditional medium, is the medium which has the most difficulty in renewing itself. With the arrival of podcasts in the media sphere, radio had to find a strategy to compete with it. That's why in France, the radio introduced the technology "DAB +", also called "Digital Audio Broadcast". This makes it possible to offer quality sound to listeners, directly on their radios. The same quality found in podcasts. For more information on this technology, see the full Les Echos article.

Answering might now be the big thing in the podcast field

We know it very well: the world of podcasting is becoming more and more popular and occupies an important place in marketing. Now that this medium has been around for a little while, it must start to renew itself and find ways to innovate. Beyond the Screenplay podcast hosts Vince Major and Michael Tucker came up with the idea. They incorporate polls directly into their podcast. This is a segment of their podcast that they say works very well with their listeners. For more information on this practice, see The Verge article.

A major breakthrough for users of live videos on Instagram: there is now the option to go live in "practice" mode! This allows users to check their connection, lighting, sound, and anything to do with live quality. This is in place to avoid the first few minutes of live video which is usually spent making sure everything is working and is fun to watch.
