    Spotify is expanding its podcast selection today, with the announcement that it’s adding three new original podcast series on its service, with plans for more originals to arrive later this year. The series, which are produced in partnership with other media partners like Slate spin-off Panoply Studios, Gimlet Media, and Loudspeaker Network, aim to help further differentiate Spotify’s service from other streaming music rivals.

    Okay, how do I get some of that Spotify money?

    Exclusive podcasts is something that is so obvious, yet something I never would have thought of haha.

    I get it, but if I were starting a podcast I would want as many people to hear it as possible.

    Not just people who use Spotify.

    Obviously Spotify will use bigger names to draw people in.

    Just an interesting medium to do this with.

    Spotify is free though so the level of entry isn't that hard.
