BBC has introduced Podcasting House. It was created to make it easier for people to discover podcasts from the BBC. Podcasting House will allow listeners to sample a range of the best of BBC’s podcasts, both old and new, in one place.
For more than a dozen years, we’ve offered many of the BBC’s radio programmes as podcasts. We led the way in 2004 when the BBC became the first British broadcaster to adopt the new technology launching Radio 4’s In Our Time as the BBC’s first podcast. Today, the BBC is the second-largest podcast producer in the world.
Podcasting House is a sampler feed that curates the best of the BBC’s existing podcasts for audiences that may not know them. It includes everyday real-life dramas (The Untold); podcasts that teach you something (Tomorrow’s World); and the ludicrous yarns of Simon Mayo’s Confessions.
The weekly drop will happen on Mondays, when new podcasts appear on the feed, bringing together a mix of BBC podcasts in one place to sample. In January, the BBC will begin launching a handful of original short series in which they will meet midwives, undertakers, comedians, and weather experts.
