Podcast Episode #3: “Pandora and Social Music”

Pandora

Why Didn't I Think of That? ® Podcast Episode 3

When Tim Westergen started the Music Genome Project, the seed for what would become Pandora Internet Radio, it was a different world. There was no Myspace, no Facebook, no iTunes. Today, it’s a very different story, and Pandora Radio is doing everything it can to stay relevant. The internet radio giant currently counts one in every six Americans as active monthly users, but now it’s looking to become an even bigger part of users’ lives. In short, Pandora is hoping to become the Facebook of music lovers, a self-contained social network where friends can connect and share.

In this episode of the Why Didn’t I Think of That?® Podcast, the Why Guys are joined by yours truly, Why Didn’t I Think of That?‘s official blogger Benjamin Christopher, for a wide-ranging discussion on Pandora Radio and the current state of Social Music.

Updated: The Wall Street Journal recently reported that Pandora, which just went public in June, has actually posted a core profit of about 2 cents per share. Not bad for a company that, until now, has never made a dime in profit.
