Music Tectonics

Feb 25, 2021

What happens when Amazon and Spotify’s “Audio First” strategies bring music, audiobooks, and podcasts into one audiosphere? Our guide to this new landscape is author, podcaster, and literary entrepreneur Joanna Penn. Joanna takes host Tristra Newyear Yeager on a tour of the evolution of audio and authorship, and how a digital revolution is shaking up that world too. Find out how the streaming economy affects indie authors and indie musicians in similar ways, and how they both need to adapt. What near future tech will help reader/listeners find the content they want from the voices that matter to them? Will AI steal authors’ and narrators’ jobs? When boundaries between music, audiobooks and podcasts blur, what creative collaborations will arise?

The Music Tectonics podcast goes beneath the surface of the music industry to explore how technology is changing the way business gets done. Visit to learn more, and find us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Let us know what you think!
