BBC Studios is the next to pour money into Pocket Casts


Now, with BBC Studios' investment, Pocket Casts continues to differentiate itself as a global audio platform focused on independent voices, supporting producers and preserving the intimacy of the medium.

As a person who has used PocketCasts exclusively for 4+ years, how exactly are they “supporting producers”? How are they “preserving the intimacy”? I know it’s just press release talk, which is essentially the same as throwing a bunch of adjectives in the air and pairing them with whatever noun card on the ground they happen to land on, but still. PocketCasts has done nothing to make discovery any easier.
