You don’t have to be a young whippersnapper to launch your own music podcast in 2019. Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant and Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour have joined the pod party, launching their own spoken-word shows on Apple, Spotify, Acast and other podcast distribution services. Plant’s is called ‘Digging Deep: The Robert Plant Podcast’, although so far only a trailer is available.
“Robert Plant unearths the moments, people and places that have inspired some of his most treasured music,” explains that trailer. Plant’s podcast is available on YouTube too, as a static-artwork listen rather than a proper video.
Gilmour’s podcast is a promotion for a charity auction later this month of 120 of his guitars. “On this podcast, discover the untold stories around a few of them,” explains its trailer. The first episode focuses on ‘The Black Strat’.
