Companies, and indeed people, remake themselves all the time. And it seems that it is no different for Spotify, who has just announced that they are acquiring podcast producing and hosting platforms Gimlet and Anchor. And that they plan to acquire a whole lot more in the podcasting space, to become a full-service audio provider.
A new sort of mystery-solving podcast – aptly called Mystery – is hitting the podcast airwaves. Mystery, which features Starlee Kine (sometimes mistakenly called ‘Starlee Kind’ – although she clearly is kind), and which is offered by startup podcast house Gimlet Media, is just six episodes in and has already garnered a huge following.
