2020.1 issue - Monograph “Podcasting and Remediation of the Radiophonic Language” The year 2019 marked the entry of new agents in the podcasting market, which began to attract large communication groups, in a scenario of new forms of distribution of audio content and redesign of listening habits. Podcasts that invest in detailed and contextualized information now coexist with traditional round tables and new formats, such as narrative radio journalism, which stress and remediate radio language. In this second wave of podcasting (Bonini, 2015), driven by investments from independent producers and financing systems such as crowdfunding, this radio mode is no longer a niche medium, operating in the logic of restricted broadcasting (Primo, 2005), getting closer and closer to mass
In this context, how does podcasting accelerate a reconfiguration of the radio, reaching new audiences? Which new formats are podcasters developing and to what extent do new intermediaries, such as streaming services, aggregators and smart speakers, condition delivery and access to content? How is the sound media market restructured as new players arrive, such as podcasts produced by newspapers, magazines, television stations and native digital websites? Radiofonias encourages the submission of articles that propose theoretical reflections and/or come from research projects that involve the various aspects of this new wave of podcasting, such as:
- New formats, aesthetic experiments and languages in podcasting
- Immersive listening experience in podcasting
- The role of aggregators and streaming services in podcast circulation
- Podcast production in the audio broadcasting industry
- Podcasting advertising: the challenge of metrics and blurred boundaries between information and commercial content - Independent and mainstream: the articulation between individual podcasters, innovative small companies and large intermediaries
- The role of podcasting in public and educational communication
- Podcasting and gender
- Podcasting, representation and ethnic identity
