Smart speakers are growing in popularity in Australia — but what are we listening to? What other devices are people using to hear audio, and what do we know about how habits are changing?
Meanwhile, big tech companies like Spotify are investing plenty of money into podcasting. What's changing in the podcast ecosystem? And how can podcasters take advantage of new services to reach more listeners and build a loyal following?
For our October event, Hacks/Hackers will hear from a panel of experts about the latest trends in digital audio.
The panel will include:

* Nance Haxton, investigative journalist, podcaster and lecturer
