About Mixtape

Podcasts have seen in the recent years a steady increase in numbers, both in terms of listeners and content providers. With over 42 million episodes available in January 2021, finding the podcast episodes to listen to is one of the main issues that listeners face. The problem is that podcasts are generally organised in lists and catalogues for listeners to subscribe to, or they are sorted based on popularity.

In MIXTAPE we improve the way podcasts are searched by allowing listeners to find content based on topics of interest. For the first time it is possible to find individual podcast episodes based on your preferences and precise interests. To enable this we use speech processing and natural language understanding and add these key components to our existing content management platform.
