Connecting the podcasting community in India.

Media and communication, in all its guises - audio or video, pictures or texts, movies or music, short-form or long-form, blogs or books, digital or analog - is as much about a collective, connected experience as it is about the content. Imagine reading books, listening to music or watching movies without any connection to the outside world. How would that feel? We would end up in a bubble and will never know what others think about the same things we are consuming. We may not see an alternative viewpoint. Regardless of the medium, we want to feel connected to not only the art but also to the artist and to other art lovers. After all, the word communication comes from the Latin word ‘communicare’ which means ‘to share’. It is the shared, common, collective experiences that make media a powerful tool for deliberation and change.
This is exactly what we, at Storiyoh, bring to the table- a social platform that connects people based on the podcasts they love and enjoy.
The app helps people discover new content based on what their friends are listening to. This changes the style of consuming podcasts from something that you’d do yourself, to one that you can do with your friends.
