2020.1 - 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
New deadline for submission: March 24, 2020
