My favorite use of the Home Mini so far is to play the latest episodes of my favorite podcasts. My first night spent with these devices was filled with the headaches of setting the gear up. I started with the Socket bulb, because I thought it would be simpler, but it wasn’t. The thought of spending my day talking to a disembodied voice was a large part of why I waited this long to try out a smart speaker. So, when I followed one of the prompts that came with the speaker, to ask Google how my day looks, I recoiled at its response. I set my charcoal-grey Home Mini up on the dresser next to my bed because my roommates don’t feel comfortable with the speaker in a common space.

The Google Podcasts app is just one of many podcast apps for Android and iOS. A goal of Google’s is to use artificial intelligence to improve the listening experience. Google’s producing this podcast app by searching the entire internet for podcasts. (Neither are Spotify, TuneIn or Stitcher, incidentally; but they account for less than 10% of all podcast downloads).

You can take a leaf out of television’s book and podcast in seasons. When you get that data, of course, there’s no need to stick to the same length each time, but it’s good to have an ‘average’ so your listeners know what to expect. If you have 50 minutes of valuable, relevant content, why chop it down to 20? Or likewise, if you’ve said everything you have to say in 10 minutes, why pad it out to 30?
