From the panel about the Changing World of Podcasts at Dubai PodFest 2022, organized by the Dubai Press Club:

Desai said that there is a new advanced version of podcasting featuring exciting innovations that is emerging globally, which he called Podcasting 2.0. Such innovations include technologies that give users the ability to make micro-payments to podcast creators and the location tagging of podcast episodes. These new features have been made possible by the decentralised nature of podcasting, which allows independent players to expand and innovate relatively easily.
