The 2021 Tribeca Film Festival reveals a lineup for its first podcasts program.
Pundits and researchers continue to forecast entertainment and media in the After-Coronavirus economy. There are plenty of debates regarding consumers and how and where they’ll choose to connect with entertainment, information, and shopping platforms. There are many stories to consider. One data point remains consistent. Researchers like eMarketer see podcast ad growth growing 41% in 2021 to an estimated $1.28 billion.
What I’m Streaming: Death, Sex & Money
“Death, Sex & Money” Host Anna Sale will tell you they tackle hard questions involving relationships, money, family, and work, basically, life itself. Take a listen to the episode Strictly, Entirely On The Fence About Having A Kid. You’ll agree with the series logline. You’ll also agree that they tackle tough topics in a lively and positive manner. As a father who quit smoking upon becoming a parent, I’m enjoying listening to Sale talk with Avery Trufelman of “The Cut” podcast talk about whether she wants to have a kid or not. Their conversation is an honest and intelligent take on the risks and benefits of parenthood. I’m also a fan of the Death Sex & Money starter kit, a sampler of favorite episodes for new listeners.
What I’m Streaming: 99% Invisible
The culture stories from “99% Invisible” creator and host Roman Mars and the “99% Invisible” team are comprehensive and compelling. Listen to episode 442, Tanz Tanz Revolution and you’ll learn about the origins of Berlin’s Techno Music scene and the collaboration with House Music Artists from Detroit. The podcast touches on business, politics, and the artists helping to transform two world-class cities. Thinking about the recent news of SiriusXM acquiring Mars’s company “99% Invisible Inc.,” I’m convinced that extra resources will take the storytelling to new heights.
