Why are Podcasts all the Craze for Celebrities?

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Why are celebrities starting podcasts? A podcast has several advantages for a celebrity. For one, it’s inexpensive, and the celebrities can interact with their fans in real-time. Another advantage is the fact that it’s easy to start. And, as it’s free to do, there’s no cost for the celebrity to start a podcast (other than time). However, the only downside to this is that it can become a money pit.

While podcasts can be enjoyed at anytime and anywhere, celebrities are making use of this format to reach their fans. Not only do podcasts provide entertainment, but they also give fans a chance to learn something new. The celebrities are addressing everything from relationships to parenting. Some have even made it personal and have dedicated an entire episode to their feelings about pizza. They’re becoming the new “Insiders,” and fans love it!

Podcasts are incredibly popular and will never die. According to some estimates, there are 144 million podcast listeners in the U.S. alone. It’s no surprise, then, that more Hollywood stars are jumping on the podcast bandwagon. It’s the perfect medium for celebrities to reach new audiences, and they’re naturally interested in increasing their fan base. So, why are they starting podcasts? Listed below are just a few reasons why podcasts are so popular.

While celebrities might not have the same audience as the non-celebrities, the celebrity podcasts that are becoming popular are likely to attract more listeners and advertisers. As such, there’s a lot of hype surrounding celebrity podcasts, which is a good thing. After all, it’s an excellent way for brands to reach a more diverse audience. If you’re wondering why celebrities are creating podcasts, here’s what you need to know.

One popular podcast is Unqualified, which explores the careers and lives of interesting people. The name derives from actress Anna Faris’s lack of qualifications, but the show is also entertaining and well-worth listening to. And it’s also great for fans of the actress. This podcast is hosted by the same person as Faris’s blog. That’s why it’s one of the most popular podcasts in the world.

Another popular podcast is Goop, which Gwyneth Paltrow launched with co-founder and CEO Erica Chidi. It’s focused on alternative therapies and features guests from the wellness industry. One episode featured Elton John and Tyler Perry. It also featured James Corden. Some of the topics covered in this podcast include gender equality, inclusiveness, and media bias.

It’s also worth mentioning that many celebrities have podcasts that feature the opinions of non-celebrities.

While you may not be familiar with the podcasts of some popular celebrities, they’re worth checking out. Some are fun and entertaining, while others are more serious and insightful. Russell Brand is well-known for his comedic approach. On Under the Skin, he interviews world-class scientists, musicians, sociologists, and entertainers. In “Under the Skin,” he explores human nature and makes it fun for listeners.

Each of these examples are of people that were once A-list celebrities that are now in decline professionally when it comes to the primary venues in which they built their careers. Some are less prominent by choice and some by poor decisions, but podcasts are a great avenue to keep their names out there and become relevant again, while also making money through sponsorships.

The pressure is strong for celebrities to complete their next hit or become irrelevant.  Podcating keeps them in the game without all the pressure.
