MNL48’s Spotify podcast program has been gaining popularity.
In April, five members ABBY, COLEEN, FRANCES, SHEKI, and YZABEL started their own shows, and for the second season starting in October, five new members ELLA, DIAN, JAN, JAMIE, and JEM have joined, and now 10 channels are being broadcasted.
As they mainly speak English, the number of listeners has started to expand beyond the Philippines to other countries,” said a source. Not only do they talk about their daily lives and what they are up to, they also talk about horror stories and read stories. The person in charge of the project said, “In Japan’s 48 groups, SHOWROOM distribution is the mainstream, but podcasts also have their own charm because they are voice-only. Each member has a unique voice, and if you listen to them during your relaxation time before bedtime, you can feel more comfortable and be in a good mood.
