Audio On Demand

Overview

Help listeners find the podcasts they love

Podcasts have now become a mainstream entertainment medium. Listeners are passionate about their shows, but without enriched audio metadata, navigating what’s available and finding new podcasts that match topics of interest can be challenging. If a platform is not consistently surfacing new, engaging podcasts and personalized recommendations, listeners may leave for a different platform.

This data enables greater personalization and search capabilities, allowing podcast fans to be able to find and connect with a broader range of hosts, guests and topics than ever before.

Gracenote Audio On Demand provides a comprehensive compilation of podcast data across languages and regions. Descriptive audio metadata and market-specific Popularity Scores power podcast search, discovery, playlisting and meaningful personalized recommendations that drive increased user engagement and podcast listening.
