The Present Future of Audio: Talk, Music, Video, Interactivity - a16z Podcast

with @gustavs @conniechan @smc90

We’ve talked a lot about podcasting, so where are we going with the future of audio, more broadly? Can we borrow from the present and future of video (e.g., TikTok) to see what’s next in audio; can we borrow from the past of audio (i.e., radio) to see what’s next for audio experiences (more blending of music, talk, podcasting)? Where do all these mediums converge and where do they diverge, when it comes to user experience, product design, recommendations, discovery, machine learning?
