Traditional Podcast

The traditional way of podcasting

Limor is an exciting new social audio app founded by Shane Monahan. Shane, an avid fan of podcasts, wanted to come up with a new, easier and more efficient way to create and share audio or podcasts, as most people were put off when they heard about the amount of time, effort and expense that can be invested when establishing a new podcast from scratch. We at Limor call this method the “traditional” way of podcasting.

This traditional method of creating and distributing podcasts dates back to the early 2000’s when the podcast first came to the forefront. The term ‘traditional podcast’ is the method used to create and distribute podcasts since the early 2000’s - a method that has not changed in well over a decade. This traditional way of podcasting - pre arranged recording locations, studios, one on one conversations, expensive equipment, research before and after recording, editing software, host websites or platforms etc is all time, energy, work and expense which is enough to turn anyone against the idea of creating podcasts, no matter how enthusiastic they may be. Due to these barriers to entry only the most committed begin to create podcasts. Not anymore , now thanks to Limor everyone can instantly join the conversation.

Podcasting is expensive

Podcasting can be extremely expensive. For a start, the cost of having a studio, the correct microphones, editing software or hiring a producer and a web host etc, is certainly not cheap. Another very valuable commodity that people can often overlook as being valuable is time, as the saying goes:

Money rich time poor

Time is extremely valuable, this is something that Limor offers it’s user, a far more time efficient method of podcasting. Limor saves the user time in creation, distribution, consumption and now also in social audio interaction.

2019 the year of the podcast

With the growth of popularity of podcasts in 2018 and the further explosion of audio and podcasts in 2019 the official launch of Limor on iOS and Android could not have come at a better time.
