Social podcasting startup Bitcast partners with Podcast Notes for joint launch of new iOS clipping app
Los Angeles based social podcasting platform Bitcast has partnered with Podcast Notes, a publisher in the podcast space, for the launch of a new iOS app that lets listeners 'Magically Clip, Collect and Share the best moments in Podcasts'.
Positioned as a new paradigm in social audio, Bitcast combines podcast clips with user generated audio in order to create a new and novel listening experience.
Marcus Sonoma, CEO, Bitcast: "Unlike the recent wave of live audio startups, Bitcast was designed to capitalize on the potential of asynchronous audio. By allowing podcast fans and podcasters to seamlessly clip and share specific moments in podcasts. We have already begun to see podcast clips emerge as an incredibly powerful new medium; one that consistently spurs on numerous important discussions on the platform. The most interesting application of podcast clips, however, is what happens when you organize them into playlists, i.e. 'best clips of all time about x'… this format of passively consumed content is something we're keenly exploring, especially with the recent proliferation of smart speakers."
Marcus further said that Podcast Notes has grown a loyal audience by expertly summarizing key takeaways from the world's best podcasts and that both campanies hope to take that one step further by creating an entire social ecosystem for those summaries to be shared and gain lives of their own.
Cyd Falkson, CMO, Podcast Notes: "We were compelled by Marcus' vision for where clipping can go and are thrilled to partner with Bitcast as a perfect complement to what we've done over the past 5 years capturing and sharing podcast knowledge."
Bitcast is actively partnering with podcasters as they look to deepen the social audio features on the app.
