  • Showcase how you buy it, how you measure it, the different formats
3. So why podcast advertising? 
  • Go through advantages of podcast advertising
4. How Spotify’s recent announcement on advanced measurement will be changing the space 
  • If Spotify will be able to do what Acast already does, how will this change the space?
5. What are the limitations to podcast advertising? 
  • Disadvantages and obstacles to choosing podcast advertising
6. Have you heard about interactive voice ads?
  • What are interactive voice ads?
