a16z Podcast: Podcasting and the Future of Audio


Episode Notes

This podcast (first recorded in 2019, now being rerun) — is a podcast about podcasting: But it’s really all about audio. A lot’s changed… and a lot hasn’t. 

How do we define “podcasts”; how does the feeds ecosystem currently work; what content and entertainment experiments might change how people not just consume, but create, in the medium? Not to mention monetize, discover, etc… 

Nick Quah, writer and publisher of Hot Pod (also at Vulture) joins a16z general partner Connie Chan — and editor in chief (and showrunner of the a16z Podcast) Sonal Chokshi — to talk about all this and more in this hallway-style jam.
