The Future of Podcast Discovery with Kal Amin and Dan Daugherty


SEO (search engine optimization) and discovery might sound like something you have to pay big bucks for in order to grow your podcast and audience—but what if it wasn’t?

  • Sounder’s mission to make podcasting more accessible
  • Sounder’s innovative approach to search optimization and audio SEO
  • Kal and Dan’s motivation for their user experience design
  • How to rank your podcast in Google

  • Q & A with Kal and Dan

Memorable Quotes:

  • “Just like everyone had a blog—every business had a blog, every person and every business will also have a podcast.”
  • “...this idea of stream audio search is finding that specific topic, phrase, keyword, whatever it may be, what you're looking for...and retrieving the information and then going back to your doing what you were doing, so we think it's going to be a pretty big shift.”
  • “When people are able to find the topics that they're interested in, and start to consume you quicker, and you're saving people time, they're more likely to discover you and fall in love with you.”
