The podcast, or audio on demand, stands out from other formats due to its immersive nature, its capacity to retain a proactive audience and its high consumption time.

Through podcasting, we help create or modify the perception that brands want to transmit about themselves.

The podcast is also a tool to improve the internal communication of a brand.
