Adobe demonstrates automatic de-umming
Podnews podcasting news
Visit https://podnews.net/update/um-er-um-uh-gone for all the links, and to subscribe. Adobe have given a preview of automatic de-umming, in a piece of work they've called #ProjectSoundSeek powered by Adobe Sensei. They also demonstrated #ProjectAwesomeAudio, a way to remove noise, fix EQ, compression and more at the touch of a button. The sessions are described as 'Sneaks', and the website notes that "some of these innovations actually make it into Adobe products", so it's unlikely that they'll be launched imminently. Anchor has launched a product to produce trailers for your podcast. Here's an example. Podtrac has released new top ten publisher rankers for US audience. NBC News debuts at #9. The data's opt-in. The number of iHeart listed shows have increased from 268 to 299 - iHeart has declined to send us a list. Classifieds - your job or ad hereJoin our Affiliate prog.

The share of time spent listening to spoken word audio has increased 20% since 2014, and this growth is cutting into time spent with music. So says the to-be-released Edison Research and NPR Spoken Word Audio Report: you can register for the free webinar here. Oli Walters has joined Podfront UK as Head of Sales. Walters joins the Wondery/Stitcher joint venture from Audioboom; he's also worked for UK commercial radio operators Bauer Media, KM Group and Global Radio. Google Podcasts has had a small tweak, reports Android Police, enabling multple episode select. You'll need to be running the latest beta of the Google app to see it. The product still has no automated downloads. Google Podcasts was launched 17 months ago. Google Play Music Podcasts, an entirely different product, is still, confusingly, operating in some countries. We, and podcast hosts in general, are still unable to programmatically check whether a podcast is listed in Google Podcasts, after changes the company made in early August.

Russo also said that Triton Digital will voluntarily resubmit certification to the IAB every two years. "Just like we do on the streaming side, we have an audit team that works with the publishers, who work with the hosting companies and the CDNs and annually audit them to make sure that the quality is kept very high. You may not know this but IAB certification is a one-time only deal. As soon as you get certified, you never have to do anything. But: Triton Digital will volunteer to be recertified every two years." A new podcast network has been launched by 30-year-old CurtCo Media, based in Malibu in California.

Based in Sweden, they are also the only “independent” host in Sweden that’s certified by the Association of Swedish Advertisers which uses IAB 2.0 as the technical foundation for their national podcast ranker (so their stats are also IAB 2 compliant). The company also has support for ad campaigns using dynamic ad insertion. An arm and a leg, a podcast about the true cost of health care in the US, is a finalist for the True Crime category of the Discover Pods awards. As Dan Weissman, the host, says, there are no police, investigators or prosecutors in the story about the US healthcare system, but quite a significant body count...
