While the podcast industry continues its incredible growth, the hunger for recording shows in front of a live audience is also growing with popularity with both producers and listeners.

Live shows are a great way to boost audience engagement as well as creating a new source of revenue.

Podcast platforms like Podbean charge an admissions entry after a certain limit of listeners. While other event platforms can charge per ticket.

These live episodes can be in the form of interviews and Q&A sessions or live coverage of events.

Podcasting live events have grown over 2,000% between 2012 and 2019.

The development of live broadcasting options has benefitted this increase, including the likes of YouTube Live, Facebook Live, Twitch and Zoom.
