Internet Raised the Radio Star

Podfaiter is the new radio show where anyone can be a star

  • Text by Nico Castro

This week, Radio Horizonte (103.3 FM in Santiago) took quite a risk, airing a new prime time show in which anyone can be the next radio star. The project is called Podfaiter (as in "Podfighter"), an alliance between that station and Podcaster, one of the biggest Spanish spoken podcast communities in the world.

You just have to record your own podcast and upload it to the site. If you get selected, then you get the chance to enter a poll, where the audience choose their favorites, just like TV reality shows. The most voted programs get to air each night at 7.30 pm. The topic of conversation is 100% free, and we have already heard podcasts about sci-fi, music, movies and even religion.
