Podcasting and social audio as a viable business has seen explosive growth in the past decade, the last few years especially. With Spotify having spent over $1Bn to acquire both tech and talent, apps like Clubhouse raising at multi-billion valuations, and even platforms like Twitter launching their own social audio Spaces, we felt this topic deserved a deeper dive.
Given the global range of social audio, it's only fair that our guide on this journey joins us from across the pond in Ireland. Shane Monahan played at the highest level of professional rugby in both Ireland and the UK, falling in love with startups and entrepreneurship along the way.
Shane and Jay dive into the trajectory of Shane's career, the future ahead of podcasting and social audio, the state of the landscape for apps like Spotfy Greenroom, Clubhouse, Twitter Space and more -- and why Limor wants to do for audio, what TikTok did for videos.
