Podcasts are the new FM with the ability to be streamed live (usually free of charge) on a computer or any other mobile device with Internet connection. Easy access to the Internet has given people an alternative option from the radio. 2016 saw a boom of this medium in Nigeria amongst individuals, groups and several other news agencies.

Pulse Nigeria has previously focused on reporting and publishing Nigerian news and entertainment stories in several multimedia formats including imagery, text and video.The second half of 2016 saw the news agency adopt a new game plan for storytelling – podcasts. The last few months has seen the organisation develop multiple podcasts, from pop culture to sports to politics and captivating stories. Pulse Nigeria remains at the forefront of Nigeria’s podcast space with two of its podcast ‘Loose Talk’ and ‘My Africa Podcast’.

The Rise Of Podcasts: The New FM panel will explore the rise of narrative storytelling and reporting and interactive journalism with some of Pulse Nigeria’s top podcast hosts and new media producers.
