All ears

Podcasts are the most prominent representatives of the audio revolution that has been taking place in France over the last few years. Thanks to the variety of content offered and their flexibility, they have carved out a place for themselves in the daily lives of many French people. Smartphones are indeed the most-used devices by French people to listen to their favorite podcasts, especially for those of them who like to listen to audio content in public transport during a long journey or while running errands.

More than a hobby

While anyone with an Internet connection and the right equipment can create their own podcast, they are not just for amateurs. Indeed, some brands have been ahead of the game and have been able to adapt by offering audio content to their customers. The number of branded podcasts, created by and with companies, has only increased over the past few years. Although many sectors have developed their own audio content in this way, the cultural sector is the one that stands out the most.
