Top Filipino Podcasts on Digital Marketing That You Should Follow

Growing up in the 90s, I was only familiar with the SONY Walkman™ and the stack of cassette tapes that made for a varied, richer listening experience. I remember how I used to patiently wait for my favorite song on the radio so I could record it on a blank tape. Definitely, from the first SONY Walkman™  to wireless earbuds, technology has shaped the way we access and consume information, entertainment, and goods, and services.

A quick history of Podcasts and Podcasting

So what is a podcast? According to WikipediaA podcast is an episodic series of spoken-word digital audio files that a user can download to a personal device for easy listening. A podcast series usually features one or more recurring hosts engaged in a discussion about a particular topic or current event.

Podcasting began in 2004 when Adam Curry and Dave Winer created iPoder, a program that allowed users to download radio broadcasts to their Apple iPods. By combining the words iPod and broadcast, the term podcasting was born.

From the first podcast to the second quarter of 2021, podcasting has grown significantly in popularity. According to, Spotify has 172 million premium subscribers worldwide, up from 144 million in the same quarter of 2020. Spotify’s subscriber base has more than doubled since early 2017.

Podcasts are now also gaining popularity in the Philippines despite a sluggish start. Filipinos have embraced this form of entertainment, and they embraced it really well!

According to a news article from ABS CBN News, Spotify podcast consumption in the Philippines has more than doubled between March 2020 and March 2021.

The pandemic has undoubtedly contributed to their increased popularity. It has given the naturally creative and quick-witted Filipinos a new platform to express themselves and listen to something other than music.

Millennial Filipino respondents increased their time spent listening to podcasts across all categories, according to a survey published by on audio listenership in the Philippines.
