Google Play Music's City Soundtracks
The first-ever podcast of Google Play Music services is called the "City Soundtracks." According to TechCrunch, the new feature will be a mix of both music and conversation. Google said that the episodes that will be played in the City Soundtracks are fairly short so far, with the longest listed file being just over 15 minutes. The City Soundtracks podcasts will be hosted by Hrishikesh Hirway, a well-known American musician, and composer.
Hirway has already known and is familiar to the podcast listeners since he has several involvements in this industry, including with the “The West Wing Weekly" and “Song Exploder." The West Wing Weekly is a podcast show wherein the involve people discuss television's most beloved shows and it was co-hosted by the star Joshua Malina. While Song Explorer is a podcast where musicians tell the story of their songs and how they were made.
Google made each episode of City Soundtracks to be paired with a playlist created by the guest to turn the listening experience into a whole music discovery, as well.

As reported by CNET, the first few podcast episodes of City Soundtracks are now available. It features chats with Big Freedia, Kehlani, and Spoon, who will talk about their cities.
