This American Life is now on Spotify, and it's not alone. Spotify has joined Apple with having a million shows.  150,000 podcast uploads happened in March, up 69% month over month, according to the Swedish company.

One more piece of Spotify news - their platform Anchor can now turn your video call into a podcast.

FInally, smart speaker usage is up in the age of quarantine, according to NPR and Edison Research.

I have a new podcast project with my collaborators at Tanner Friedman Strategic Communications - it's called Michigan Motors Forward.  I've been inspired by the 15 minute stories that Metro Detroit business owners have shared with me.
