Norman Pattiz: Podcast King

The podcast industry is a place where free-spirited people can express themselves however they want. Until now, podcasts were only audio shows; sort of like modern radio shows. Thanks to PodcastOne, podcast listeners can experience something totally new. Recently, the company launched a new version of their app that immerses their listeners into a better world of podcasts.

The new app not only features new shows, but it also features visual shows; more on that later. Most people think of podcasts as being like radio stations, only online and without music. PodcastOne’s new app allows listeners to participate in live shows and interact with one another via personal messages.

Now, PodcastOne has virtual reality. They’ve been discussing virtual reality since the tech advanced enough that it began making waves. Now that virtual reality seems to be the future of entertainment, PodcastOne’s partnered with Mandt VR to make it happen.

Since partnering, the two companies have filmed over 1,000 videos. Every day, their VR library, which is accessible now, grows by dozens. Most of PodcastOne’s studios are rigged with VR equipment, and some shows even have mobile VR equipment so that can shoot in exotic and public locales.

Anytime two big companies like PodcastOne and Mandt VR work together, the executives learn from each other. In this case, Mandt VR owner, Neil Mandt, learned a lot more from PodcastOne founder, Norman Pattiz. Mandt felt honored to work with a media pioneer like Pattiz. He was impressed by Pattiz’s willingness to embrace advanced technology.

Pattiz’s fearless adventures are what made PodcastOne so successful. PodcastOne is the biggest podcast provider in the world. It was the first podcast company that embraced an advertising-based business model. That kind of success only comes from decades of experience and the will to try new things.

PodcastOne is obviously Pattiz’s most popular business. Last year, Forbes did a four-page article about PodcastOne’s star-studded lineup. Most of the popular shows on PodcastOne are hosted by some of the world’s most popular celebrities and experts. The magazine also recognized Pattiz for his business savvy and financial success.
