The suite of new programming covers a wide range of relatable topics, like parenting, storytelling & culture, lifestyle & health, and film & TV.
Kirthi Shetty, AVP – Creative Production at JioSaavn said, “Podcasting might have been novel for India in 2016 — when JioSaavn first forayed into the category — but today it is a household staple for entertainment and information. As we continue to expand our catalog beyond music, we aim to bring quality original programs to our users that are smart, culturally relevant and compelling. The length of these shows is very accessible — less than 20 minutes — and most of them are available in both Hindi and English, allowing for a wide variety of listeners across the country to tune in.
