Norman Pattiz: Taking Podcasts Virtual

What does the future of podcasts look like? To answer that question, look no further than Norman Pattiz’s PodcastOne. PodcastOne launched a new mobile app that immerses their listeners in another world. This new app takes podcasts in a completely different direction than anyone expected.

The number of new features this app offers to listeners has a lot of people excited. For starters, the new app offers virtual reality videos for certain programs. Other programs allow live communication between hosts and listeners. Listeners also have the option to communicate with each other via personal messaging.

The virtual reality is a huge selling point for the new app; not that the app costs money. The new PodcastOne app is free in all app stores and on the company’s website. The virtual reality and 360-degree formats are compliments of Mandt VR. PodcastOne partnered with Mandt VR specifically to immerse their listeners as much as possible.

It was important to both companies that the virtual reality be the highest quality possible. After working out the details of their partnership, Mandt VR set up the newest VR equipment in every major PodcastOne studio. That included their studies in New York, Beverly Hills, and Burbank.

Neil Mandt acknowledged that PodcastOne is an unrivaled powerhouse for a reason. He praised the PodcastOne executive, Norman Pattiz, for being consistently innovative and focused. In his opinion, PodcastOne will always be at the top of the industry. Pattiz is too brilliant and open to adopting new business strategies.

Usually, companies fudge their fact a little to exaggerate their success. That’s not PodcastOne does to impress people. The real facts: PodcastOne is the biggest provider of podcasts shows in the world, and they release over 20,000 minutes of new audio content every week. Even more impressive, their library consists of more than 200 shows.

Even before founded PodcastOne, Norman Pattiz’s career was successful. Before PodcastOne, he founded Westwood One and Courtside Entertainment Group.
