We set out to understand what makes a podcast engaging for some listeners while others completely tune out. Turns out there is a very simple explanation for this. Podcasts are like great books or TV shows; while there are some universal favorites, tastes vary dramatically.
We are building our recommendation algorithm to take cues from your tastes and preferences in books, movies and TV shows to suggest podcasts for you.
The following pairing of podcasts and TV shows provide an example of the result we want to achieve; they're also a great way to get started in the podcast universe if you are new to it.
