Le Podcast : un allié pour mieux dormir

The Podcast: an ally for better sleep

Appreciated and listened to by nearly one French person out of ten, the podcast has become the new way to get information and to be lulled by stories. What if you used it to sleep better and learn about your sleep?

But where does this practice come from?

Accessible from computers, mobile applications, or other multimedia players, the podcast is in fact the junction of two words: "IPod" and "Broadcast". Offering audio content, two types of podcasts can be differentiated nowadays: the first being the replay podcast, which offers a replay of radio shows, and the native podcast, created only for the web. Born between 2001 and 2003 in the United States, the podcast was created by three people named Dave Winer, Christopher Lydon and Adam Curry. It appeared at the end of 2002 in France thanks to Arte Radio and its series of anti-commercial and anti-cultural podcasts. A few years later, radio stations started to use the practice by offering a replay of their shows. Allowing listeners to listen to their content at any time of the day, and in any place, podcasts have charmed the hearts of many French people.
