We also publish an annual State of the Industry Report for podcasts in the MENA region. You can find the Amaeya Media 2020 Report here.
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. Whether it were the Vedas of India or Homer's poems of Greece, to chants, songs and 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.
