In this month’s edition of “What’s in My Buds?” we chat with Christina Choi from Spotify. Christina is a partnership manager on Spotify’s content team, and focuses on podcasts and videos. (Spotify recently added podcasts to the music mix and made them available to both free and premium mobile users on iOS & Android in the US, UK, Sweden, and Germany).
Christina is a musician at heart and always had her eye on a music-related job before joining Spotify. She’s particularly excited to share podcasts with Spotify users. Read on to learn about the ones that have her hooked.
What is your go-to podcast and why?
What show do you wake up to?
What is your favorite listening environment?
My morning commute on the subway or my bike. I download the latest episodes on my Spotify (shameless plug) and I listen on the go. I have a pretty expressive face, so depending on the podcast, I’m either laughing hysterically or crying. It’s quite a show for my fellow passengers and bike commuters.
What show do you rave to your friends about?
I’m a huge fan of The Moth and always recommend it to podcast newbies. Dinner Party Download is also fantastic. It’s such an amazing concoction of all aspects of culture. They have great guests and feature awesome music and movies. I also just discovered How Did This Get Made and I’ve been talking about it non-stop. It’s so funny. If you’re a Nicholas Cage fan (who isn’t??), I highly recommend the Face-Off and Con-Air episodes.
If you were to start your own podcast what would the subject be?
I’d love to give a meaty, in-depth analysis on all things K-pop.
How do you envision the future of the podcasting landscape?
