The name Amaeya traces it roots to Sanskrit, where Ameya means ‘limitless’, or ‘one who is beyond measure’. In some translations it also represents ‘pure’ and ‘integrity’. We extended this with the diphthon or gliding vowel from Latin, æ.
Our name signifies the work we're setting out to do in growing the content ecosystem, exploring new topics, staying true to the content, and the story, while paying our homage to the ancient languages of the world and their evolution.
Oral storytelling was the first form of transmission humans had, even before we had the written word. From the Vedas of India, Homer's poems of Greece, to chants, and songs, knowledge was passed down from generation to generation through voice, across cultures and times. In fact, it is so embedded in our DNA that even today we send voice notes to communicate, and are excited when we can talk to our AI assistants, compared to just typing to ‘them’.
Podcasts extend the power of audio by providing a decentralised medium for creation and distribution. Unlike the social media platforms of the 21th century, anyone can start a podcast, on any platform, in any format they like and everyone can listen in a platform of their choosing.
We believe podcasts can be the basis on which the worldwide creator economy can be built. The medium has been 20 years in the making, seeing numerous highs and mainstream attention over the last few years. This puts podcasts in a sweetspot combining the lessons of a mature and growing industry, while adapting to the newer world of Web3 which is built on the same pillars of decentralisation and more importantly, creative ownership.
