Podcast #96 – Are Smart Speakers Smart for Community Radio?
7 days ago
Amazon Echo. Google Home. And soon, Apple’s HomePod. Smart speakers are quickly taking up residence in homes. Taking voice commands to deliver news, weather, music and more, they play a very radio-like role in people’s daily routine.
Radio journalist Brian Edwards-Tiekert joins to explain what these speakers can do, what they can’t, and what the implications are for community radio and podcasters. He recently completed a John S. Knight Journalism Fellowship at Stanford University where one of his research topics was the relationship between smart speakers and local journalism, co-authoring a post on Medium with the findings.
