With millions of listeners making podcasts part of their lives every day, Spotify is making hundreds of BBC podcasts available to Spotify users in the UK starting today. The audio streaming giant has added podcasts from iPlayer Radio and BBC Sounds to the platform, making thousands of episodes across a number of diverse genres available in one place.
“The BBC is one of the largest content creators in the UK, and have worked with the biggest and best audio talent in the world,” explains James Cator, Spotify’s Head of Podcast Partnerships, EMEA. “To have a comprehensive audio catalog in the UK, the BBC is essential, so adding the BBC to our rapidly-expanding catalog of podcasts was a natural partnership.”
To access the podcasts, users can simply visit the podcast section in Browse on Spotify and browse categories including Comedy, News & Politics, Educational, Sport & Recreation, Lifestyle & Health, Business & Technology, and Kids & Family.
The BBC was one of the first podcast creators in the world when it made Radio 4’s ‘In Our Time’ downloadable online in 2004. Today, the BBC podcast library boasts hundreds of programmes across thousands of episodes and caters to millions of listeners across the UK and worldwide.
