I’m thrilled to announce that after four months of strong growth, my podcast Autonomous Cars with Marc Hoag finally has its own home on the web! With 41 episodes at the time of this writing, ACMH is the only twice-weekly podcast on autonomous cars…. in the world.
Autonomous Cars with Marc Hoag rises from Innovately…
While I launched Innovately less as an experiment and more of a repository of my favorite musings on autonomous cars several years ago, sadly, it never really picked up momentum and my last article was published in March 2016.
In the years since, I realized a curious thing: while there were certainly numerous podcasts that discussed autonomous cars now and then — and many blogs, to be sure, like the fantastic Electrek and 2025ad, not to mention behemoths like Autoblog — I couldn’t find a single, regularly updated podcast singularly dedicated to autonomous cars.
…and launches in February 2018…
Naturally, then, I thought it would be great to create my own. Trouble was, it was still a hassle to make podcasts, and frankly, I was too busy running our startup. But then, in February 2018, I discovered Anchor.fm, a simple app that lets you record podcasts from your phone; hosts them; and crucially, distributes them to all the major podcast directories like iTunes Podcasts, RadioPublic, Stitcher, Podcasts, and so on. And oh yeah, it’s 100% free.
…enjoying steady growth and perfect 5-star reviews on iTunes Podcasts
Intrigued, I downloaded the app and give it a try… and, well, I think the last four months speaks for itself: as of this writing, Autonomous Cars with Marc Hoag has enjoyed persistent week-over-week and month-over-month growth; has maintained a perfect 5-star rating in iTunes; and has maintained its promise of delivering at least two, 15-minute episodes per week.
