The demand for more Arabic and diverse Arabic content continues despite these groups and other individual shows having make or break podcasts in the MENA region. The majority of shows that may be found online focus on interviews. Despite being widely used and inexpensive to generate, this format does not advance or support ecosystem innovation.
You won’t find many podcasts that correspond to the current trends if you look at “what’s hot” on YouTube or any popular hashtags on social media. Where can I find podcasts delivering on my daily knowledge needs? Peak “daily news” podcast popularity in English has probably already been attained. There are shows, but one or two individuals produce them. Even though this is fantastic, it won’t result in a thriving podcast industry or a profitable venture. As we’ll see momentarily, there is a gap in the market regarding production platforms. Podeo is here to give youth the platform they need.
In most difficulties, there is a tremendous opportunity. There should be hundreds or thousands of podcasts in each category. In addition to daily news, there are still specific categories without any podcasts, such as health, self-help, which is quite popular elsewhere, and actual crime, which strangely helped spark the resurgence in podcasting. This proves to be the perfect time for a leader in the Arab podcasting world to emerge, and Podeo is stepping up.
