S1EP3 - How does Europe listen to podcasts?

Podium

The formats that are huge hits in Spain could be less successful in Poland, or Ireland. On this episode, Javi Caminero is joined by Edu Alonso, Head of Podcast for Southern and Eastern Europe at Spotify, to understand how the European audience listens to podcasts.
