ECREA Radio Keynote

  1. 1. Radio’s relationship with Podcasting Richard Berry University of Sunderland @richardberryuk
  2. 2. “…Radio can be said to have certain characteristics, but the evidence suggests that radio is what history says it is: it has no essence since it has already taken, and continues to take, different forms. Radio is what it is at a given time, in a given context of use and meaningfulness..” • (Jo Tacchi, 2000) This Photo by Unknown Author is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA
  3. 3. Degrees of remediation: Distributed content / highlights / curated feeds / bespoke content
  4. 4. “ Podcasting facilitates repeat listening far better than the domestic audio taping of the past, and compliments the ABC’s existing facilities for extending the shelf-life of its high quality content” (Simone Murray, 2009)
  5. 5. • I felt a podcast was like a blog here and that it was something that amateurs would do NOT professionals that it was that that was the real breakthrough that it would open up media to all kinds of people whom it wasn’t open to before. • If an average person hears Chris Lydon doing an N.P.R. like thing they’re not going to get the idea that they can do it. That is a really important point that I didn’t see. However, when I did it, nobody could miss that I didn’t know what I was doing. I mean as far as audio was concerned. Of the interviews I did one of them had, like, three minutes of dead air in there. I mean, somehow the microphone got turned off but I ran it anyway • Dave Winer This Photo by Unknown Author is licensed under CC BY-SA
  6. 6. Where Podcasts Exist Podcasting as a liminal space between radio and online participatory media RADIO PODCASTING ONLINE PARTICIPATORY MEDIA Movement over time
  7. 7. Actually, it probably looks more like this RADIO PODCASTING ONLINE PARTICIPATORY MEDIA EDUCATION
  8. 8. Radiogenisis • A developing sense of CULTURAL IDENTITY • “Radio” as a means to explain what we do • Ownership as a political economic act • Re-invention? Rejuvenation? • Or re-configuration of the cultural and economic output of a radio business?
  9. 9. “We call podcasting "radio" to give an easy analogy to a new form of media”
  10. 10. “I didn’t know anything about podcasts; I didn’t know what they were, or what they should be,” Sarah Koenig
  11. 11. There are so many different radio formats and so many different podcast formats. Some podcasts are like some radio shows, some radio shows sound completely different to other radio shows and some podcasts sound completely different to other podcasts. Some podcasts have a higher budget than some radio stations. There is so much diversity in the field already. The difference between radio and podcasts is not clear. (UK Podcaster)
  12. 12. ‘Podcasting to me is very different to radio. Simply because you use your voice, the creation and distribution process and business can be very different. Just because you play a guitar and are from Nashville doesn’t mean you are a country singer. Similarly, podcasting and radio can be very different’
  13. 13. There is a definite split between the independent podcaster and those backed by radio with full staffs who simply repackage their radio content and call it a "podcast." We call them "procasters" and it is not a complimentary term. (US Podcaster)
  14. 14. Medium or Platform? •…A ‘medium’ derives not only from technological capabilities, but also from textual characteristics, industrial practices, audience behaviours, and cultural understanding” (Lotz, 2017)
  15. 15. • “There is a need to give this format further relevance and to differentiate it from traditional broadcasting” • (Perez, 2012)
