In a world where podcast hosts and podcasters have become more and more influential over the past few years, it can be easy to feel that the role of podcast hosts is not only being lost, but is being lost in the muck of the digital age.
But a new study published in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology finds that podcasting is not necessarily doomed to be a niche activity.
It can help build your audience and make it more appealing to them.
In the study, researchers from the University of New South Wales, Macquarie University, and the University Of Sydney found that podcasts and other media that offer live audio feeds can boost social cognition, which is the process of processing and organizing information and information processing in a way that is relevant to the topic at hand.
“The idea that there’s no such thing as a niche is a myth,” says Andrew Stott, lead author of the study and an associate professor in the Department of Psychology at Macquarrie University.
“Podcasting can be a very useful tool to help us understand what’s going on in society, but it can also be useful for helping us understand the world around us, for helping people to connect with one another.”
The study was a collaboration between the Macquara Institute, the University and the Australian National University, where Stott is a researcher.
They wanted to find out if podcasts can help with social cognition.
The research involved researchers conducting two experiments.
One experiment used a podcasting app called Podcaster.
The other experiment used an online survey designed by the researchers.
The two experiments involved a sample of people aged 18 to 24 years old and randomly assigned to one of two conditions: a control condition where they heard nothing about the study but listened to the podcasts, or a podcast condition where the podcasts were recorded and participants had to write a survey.
Participants who listened to podcasts in the control condition were then asked to rate their emotional state on a scale of 1 to 5.
In both conditions, participants were told they would be rated on their emotions on a range of factors such as their perceived emotional intelligence, their ability to remember and understand information, their mental health, and how happy they felt.
For both conditions the audio was recorded in the form of a podcast.
Participants in the podcasts condition were told the audio would be played on their computer while they listened to it.
Participants with the podcasts group also listened to two other podcasts on their device during the study.
In addition to being asked to read a questionnaire, participants also had to listen to the audio.
In this experiment, the audio had to be played for 5 minutes, which meant participants had 10 minutes to read through it.
The audio was also recorded for another 5 minutes.
Participants were also asked to rank how much they liked the audio as well as how much the audio made them feel.
For the podcasting condition, participants had the audio played for 10 minutes.
The same audio was then played for another 10 minutes and participants were asked to write down how much their feelings changed.
Participants then rated the audio for emotional intelligence and emotional intelligence rating scales.
They were also told they were being watched by a person.
The participants were also given a questionnaire to complete that included the following: How many of you would like to listen for free, or at least not for a while?
How many have ever listened for free or been interested in listening for free?
How long have you listened to a podcast before?
How happy are you with your podcast listening experience?
How much of your life have you spent listening to podcasts?
How likely are you to listen again to the podcast?
How often do you listen to podcasts on a regular basis?
How satisfied are you that your podcasts have helped you make sense of the world?
How important is your podcast to you personally?
If you answered “very important” or “somewhat important,” how much more important is the podcast to your life?
If the response was “extremely important,” then you would rate your podcast a 2 or a 3.
“It’s possible to build a large group of listeners and make them feel that there are people listening to them, but we need to do that in a controlled way,” says Stott.
The next step is to find the people who are listening to the online survey and to conduct another experiment.
In that experiment, participants would be asked to fill out a questionnaire about their mental and emotional health and how they feel about their podcast listening experiences.
Stott says the study shows that podcasts can be very valuable for people to build an understanding of their lives and relationships, and can help them understand what people are really thinking, feeling and feeling about their own lives and the world.
He also believes that podcasts have a positive impact on people’s social lives.
“We have this idea that we are the only people who can hear what people really are thinking, thinking, and feeling, but that’s not true,” Stott said.
“If you listen and you read and you hear people talk about
