Twitter launches a 'live podcasting' service - or, as we know it, radio

Greetings from London, where Next Radio has just completed. I’d tell you what it was like, but as I currently type this, it’s a Sunday morning and I don’t know. But let’s assume it went brilliantly. You’ll get some videos on the website in the next few days - and, who knows, there might even be a few there now.

I’m just about to fly to Romania, then Sweden, Oslo, and then back home. At some point, my bag might even catch up with me!

  • Periscope Audio - Twitter launches, essentially, live radio, and anyone can have a go. Nice. Amusingly, I’ve seen this being described as “live podcasting” by some tech sites, which rather proves the point about how they view radio.

  • Your guests are an opportunity for audience growth - this is written for podcasters, but just as relevant for radio too

  • 25 Years of Internet Radio: Part 1 - fun article, with the first streaming of Virgin Radio in there from Gavin Starks. In the very best tradition - it started on a computer on his desk with an FM radio plugged in.
