I started Asia Tech Podcast 4 years ago and since then there has been a flourishing of storytelling technologies - from Tik Tok to Podcasts. In this episode I examine what's going on in communication tech both in Asia and the rest of the world. We look at what's driving the democratization of storytelling and take a trip back into history to understand how communication technologies from the age of the Gutenberg Printing Press have always disrupted first then democratized second.

In this episode of Asia Tech Podcast my trends explorer colleague Yi Jing Fly joins me to share her latest insights. We look at how communication apps Tik Tok and Wesing are dominating a global teen user base and why, despite Zuckerberg's dismissal, this does not bode well for apps like Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Spotify. Tik Tok and Tencent's Wesing are the first billion user apps out of Asia and they solve the customer problem in a fundamentally different way than Facebook and Google.

Podcasting for Robots is about human communication is the era of the machine. As businesses undergo radical change driven by digital transformation and hypergrowth technologies like Artificial Intelligence, they will be similarly forced to find their human voice. The more we push into Automation, the more businesses and customers will year for the human touch - conversational tools like Podcasts. Evolving platforms that do "everything with everybody" will end up offering the same products to the same customers the only distinguishing barrier to entry left being the human beings who build and advocate the platform.

I'm spending a couple of days with my client Xero down in Brisbane Australia this week for Xerocon. Xerocon is the manifestation of how a platform competes in this era of digital transformation. At the end of the day, it's about people. Xero is an $8bn SAAS platform but it's product isn't really beautiful accounting software, it's the whole experience - it's this event, it's every interaction with the people in the team and it's their story. The physical software is just one tool in this bigger product suite. That's the experience we as customers buy today.

In this special edition of Asia Tech Podcast I share an inside look on what's happening in the fast moving world of Customer Experience in Asia. Case studies featured include Alibaba Hema, PingAn Financial, Grab, Uber, Emirates and Airasia. The challenge facing brands in Asia is their competition won't come from the next guy in category, but from a completely different sector. This asynchronous competition - players like Alibaba or Amazon - will be well resourced and able to wipe out incumbents and with them generations of legacy. We look at how Asia is positioned to accommodate Digital Transformation and who is leading in this space.

In today's Asia Tech Podcast I share insights on how brands can use podcasts to acquire and retain talent. While traditionally this may be seen as a recruitment or HR function, increasingly this will become how brands compete against each other into the next decade. By humanizing their brands through podcasting, companies like Grab, GoJek and SAP can create new revenue streams and reduce the cost of talent acquisition.

Their acquisitions include Gimlet Media, Anchor and Parcast. While the industry has analysed this strategic direction in detail, nobody has broken this down for Asia. In Asia Tech Podcast 493, my colleague Prarthana Sibal joins me to look at the podcast opportunity in Asia. We unpack Asia's $30 trillion middle class and frontrun the demographic trends that could make Asia a huge greenfield market. We discuss why young girls are avid consumers or true crime podcasts, why Asian brands have a substantial storytelling gap that won't be filled by legacy or ad agencies, and how the podcast market in Asia could be potentially bigger than the rest of the world

On the other, it sits in the middle of a hypercompetitive cauldron of opportunity. A 5 hour flight from HQ in Malaysia gives you access to 3.5 billion people, half the world's population. Add to this the rising tide of Asia's $30 trillion Middle Class. With 40 million people visiting the website every month and 100 million passengers flying, it's possible to argue their valuations, based on data potential alone, should be seen in the same context as Netflix (135x) and Gojek (200x) rather than General Electric (16x) or General Motors (6x). The residing challenge for any airline is the fact that 99.9% of the time, its customers aren't in a plane, and that most people still see them as an airline. Digital transformation takes good leadership and a compelling story; a story that reframes their value. How do you build an ecosystem around a platform when 90% of the value is created off payroll? How do you foster lean startup thinking within the walls of a corporation? In this podcast I'll unpack the challenges and also where I think they are heading

On this episode of The Asia Tech Podcast, host Graham Brown discusses the benefits of podcasting itself and the opportunities it offers forward-thinking companies. To do so, Graham ventures outside the region to examine the amazing success that the NPR (or National Public Radio) in the US has enjoyed after going into podcasting. He delves into why NPR's radio listeners have actually increased after launching their podcast and what other businesses can learn from this. You'll also learn which podcast Graham feels is the Gold Standard that others should seek to emulate, as well as why he feels storytelling is incredibly important and how it helps to create an emotional connection with the audience.

Tony Fernandes is the CEO of AirAsia and one of the most recognizable business leaders in the region. He is outspoken, a maverick and often treads (in his own words), "a fine line between brilliance and stupidity". By his own admission, some of his business bets haven't paid off - taking over a Formula One team and a football club. But others certainly have. His net worth is estimated at $745 million. Behind his success is a story of taking huge risks - he bought AirAsia for 1 Malaysian Ringgit when nobody else saw its potential value when only 6% of Malaysians were flying. To Tony, that meant 94% of the market was untapped. He soon turned it around, growing the airline from 2 to 200 planes and reporting a profit within a year. Many know of the AirAsia success story but what and who made it possible? In this podcast, Tony shares insights into his own backstory that continue to shape his business career today - from a Tupperware selling Mum "who could sell ice to eskimos" to a Dad who withheld praise on young Tony's successes. Then there's those maverick tendencies. When you get thrown in the deep end you either sink or learn to swim very fast. His scrappy nature goes way back to the day his father packed him off on a plane at Sebang airport. Unknown to Tony, he was heading to Heathrow airport to start a new life in boarding school in the UK - a teenager, alone in an unfamiliar world. Surviving these ordeals as a kid imbues any adult with a sense of confidence in business. What's the worst thing that can happen? Tony also shares insights about his journey never before discussed in public media - from his first encounters in the UK - to how these experiences impacted his belief in the importance of talent and diversity within AirAsia.

Like many A-List Business celebrities, everyone wants a piece of him. That's why getting Tony Fernandes on as a guest for Asia Tech Podcast wasn't easy. It took 8 months of planning, numerous rescheduling (we even had our flights booked on one occasion) and a lot of patience. But, T-Day (Tony Day) finally came round and we packed our studio into cases and took a flight (AirAsia of course) to Kuala Lumpur to meet Tony himself. In this podcast we discuss what it took to finally land the podcast with Tony and the equipment we used. We've recorded over 200 podcasts together in studio and on the road for Asia Tech Podcast - so we've stress tested a lot equipment.
