The Potsdam Summit - The Euroradio Cultural Forum: Linear Radio versus On-Demand

As radio reaches its centenary, on-demand audio presents us with unprecedented challenges and opportunities. How should -Public Service Media- handle the competition in the podcast universe? Especially young people are consuming audio content from platforms of the big tech companies. Are these giants friends or enemies, should PSM cooperate with the giants to reach out to the listeners, or walk its own way? What does the future hold - is radio crossing the Rubicon?

The Potsdam Summit is a fast-paced trip through new formats and ideas for cultural and music radio around Europe, and addresses topics as the importance of ‘Building Trust in the Digital Era’ or ‘Beethoven for the Gaming Generation’ and ‘The New Emperors of the Audio Universe’.
