Using Music in Podcasts... the Right Way!
1 day ago
Episode #129: Despite being over a decade old, podcasting is still a new frontier for music licensing. As podcasts gain millions of listeners and big budgets, it's more important than ever for artists to understand their rights when approached about music use. Entertainment and podcast lawyer Lindsay Bowen gives us a rundown of how podcasts *should* go about using music and how artists can protect themselves. Jacob Webb, licensing and podcast coordinator at KEXP explains how they handle music use and navigate the intersection between streaming songs and radio play. We also hear advice from Jonathan Menjivar, senior producer at Pineapple Street Media (former producer at This American Life).
Produced by Will Watts and Anna McClain. Engineered by Brent Asbury.

This show is super informative & polished! I'm not a musician but Portia and guests shed light on the industry in a way that is accessible to all. Plus there are great interviews with some of my favorite indie bands.
