The podcast industry has experienced significant growth in recent years. Platforms like YouTube, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and Apple Podcasts have excelled in this field, and according to various reports, this industry generates millions of dollars annually.
Podcasts are not only a form of entertainment but also serve as an educational medium. From general topics like news to finance and personal development, podcasts are highly useful in today’s world.
Due to the immense importance of podcasts today, both culturally and economically, it is crucial for Mexicans not only to consume podcast content but also become creators in this format.
As a result, it has been announced that Spotify, in collaboration with UNAM, will launch a course focused on podcast development.
The course, led by prominent podcasting professionals in Mexico, will provide practical and theoretical knowledge on various aspects of podcasting. Participants will learn how to conceptualize a program, design its narrative, and apply marketing tools to promote their podcast.
Podcasting is an incredible medium that allows people to express themselves and connect with audiences worldwide. That is why we want to encourage Mexicans to have knowledge in this format, which is currently thriving. And what better way to start than with an alliance with one of the most recognized universities globally.Nacho Gil, Head of Podcast for Latam & US Latin at Spotify, stated in a press release.
