A few questions regarding podcast/audio-only submissions

I've recently added an audio-only podcast on IMDb for the first time and as a result I have several questions on how the whole thing works:

-Should serialized podcasts have "audio-only" and "category-podcast" keyword added to each and single episode or it is fine to have them on the series level only (as is the normal way for web-series)?

-I assume that radio shows are still ineligible, however radio broadcasts which are also specifically podcasts should be, right? In the case of "The Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show" (2013) 2-hour radio episodes are re-released as much shorter podcast episodes, often containing one segment per episode. 

-Should radio plays later re-released as podcasts be added? For example, would a radio play directed by Andrei Tarkovsky and released in 1965 suffice as an eligible title, considering that recording was re-released in an audio format not unlike podcasts or audio plays already eligible and featured on the database?

-Should in that case original radio broadcast date be added as a year of release, or first eligible format release date (I would assume that would be 2000 in case of this particular play)?  

This conversation is no longer open for comments or replies and is no longer visible to community members.

Hey Nikolay - we laid out the policies here: https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/data-issues-policy-discussions/policy-update-audio-only-podcasts-can-now-be-listed-on-imdb/5f4a7c7d8815453dba06d6b9

 

A radio show should be eligible if released as a podcast. The release date should be the release date of the podcast episode itself.

 

Series level attaching keywords is fine too.
