Podcasts: Where next?

How can INGOs embrace the power of the podcast?


Thursday, February 6, 2020

Podcasts at their best offer an unusually intimate and immersive experience and their huge growth in recent years shows that they are successfully connecting with audiences. But with tens of millions of podcasts now available, how can INGOs best take advantage of this trend?

Our free podcast explores the latest debates in international development to stimulate your thinking.



In this report, IBT look at the changing podcast landscape, the trends dominating the field, where podcasts are heading next and they explore how INGOs can best utilise the medium. For those wishing to launch their own podcasts, the report advises caution. Think carefully about who your target audience is and how best to engage them. Successful podcasts often work best when they are aimed at niche audiences.

The report also features our own BondCast, and how we managed to carve out an audience.
