    ◎眾所周知,Spotify喜歡播客,它的一些前高級主管顯然也喜歡播客。
    ◎(EvaLægdsgaard)在Spotify工作了近9年,在2018年9月離職。現在,她是總部位於丹麥的播客創業公司Podimo的五位聯合創始人之一,該公司剛剛獲得了1500萬歐元(約合1,650萬美元)的A輪融資。
    ◎根據CrunchBase的說法,Podimo是目前在丹麥和德國可用的播客平台,與大多數競爭對手不同,Podimo實際上與播客創作者分享收入。
    ◎Podimo有點像美國的Luminary,它在這種模式下具有免費級的播客,還具有300多種原創/獨家節目的訂閱級,會員費則直接與播客創建者共享。

    詳細全文:

    Spotify loves podcasts, as has been well documented. Some of its former executives clearly love podcasts too.
    Eva Lægdsgaard spent nearly nine years at Spotify, rising to be its director of artist and label services in the Nordics – we last interviewed her in 2016 about Danish band Lukas Graham’s success – before leaving in September 2018. Now she’s one of five co-founders of a Denmark-based podcasting startup called Podimo, which has just raised €15m (around $16.5m) in Series A funding.
    According to CrunchBase, this adds to a €6m seed round from July 2019. Podimo has an interesting model too: it’s a podcast platform currently available in Denmark and Germany which unlike most rivals actually shares its revenues with podcast creators. (Reminder: traditionally, podcast services haven’t paid any kind of per-download or per-stream royalties to the shows they carry).
    Podimo is a bit like Luminary in the US, in that it has a free tier with podcasts under that model, but also a subscription tier with more than 300 original / exclusive shows, where “your membership fee is shared directly with any podcast creator (from anywhere in the world, exclusive or non-exclusive) who you listen to in a given month”. So not just royalties, but user-centric royalties. Lægdsgaard and her co-founders Morten Strunge, Nikolaj Koppel, Sverre Dueholm and Andreas Sachse plan to use the funding for expansion, original content investment and analytics tools.
