What's the future of audio podcasts?

It's (nearly) 2024 β€” you're hosting a podcast or listening to one. 🧠

Want to use AI to make avatars and global content?

Even creators like Mr Beast are bullish on creating content in languages other than English. You've got to win a global audience, isn't it? Our creators, Manya Kotian and Sachin Soundar, reviewed one such app that even Colin & Samir spoke about.

And on that note, have a happy 2024! See you soon. πŸ‘‹
