Soon, it’ll be quicker to list the music-streaming services that *aren’t* streaming into podcasts as an additional content format.
Middle Eastern / North African service Anghami is the latest, having added more than 250 shows from more than 40 local podcast studios, as well as global shows from outside the MENA region.
“The local podcasting community is a creative one, they present relevant content to the MENA consumer in Arabic and English languages. Some Podcasts have been running for years,” said Anghami’s Rami Zeidan.
The news comes as Anghami faces new competition in its home region from services like Spotify and Deezer, which have both been upping their catalogues of podcasts in the last year.
