Protecting Podcasting’s Future: The Launch of The Podcast Standards Project
The Podcast Standards Project is a grassroots coalition that aims to establish open standards for the podcast industry to promote innovation and protect open podcasting.
The goal? To protect the freedom of podcasting.
As large corporations enter the podcasting space, there’s a risk of the loss of control to podcasting as we know it today.
The project advocates for hosting platforms and listening apps to adopt a standard set of new podcasting tags and features.
While paywalling content has always been a thing, not having standards to be held to means how we listen to and consume podcasts across platforms may not be consistent. And, it should be.
The idea behind the PSP is to maintain open podcasting and prevent proprietary features from disrupting how people can listen to podcasts.
