When a behemoth swallows a giant or two, it is worth a moment to pause and think about what it means for the industry.
In this case, the acquisitions of Gimlet, Anchor, and Parcast by Spotify have sent a shockwave through the industry. MouthMedia Network CEO Rob Sanchez sat down with Matt Hartman from betaworks, which invested in both Gimlet and Anchor, to hear his thoughts on what the acquisitions mean for audio. (Note: This episode was recorded prior to the announced acquisition of Parcast.)
