Amazon's top deal of the year (in terms of podcasting, anyway) is still in the rumor stage. The tech giant is reportedly in talks to acquire Wondery, potentially for more than $300M. (The company was valued at $100M after its previous funding round, in June 2019.) Amazon might need to pay top dollar for Wondery, as its own Amazon Music has been relatively late to move into the podcasting world, compared to Apple and Spotify at least. Amazon Music began featuring podcasts in September. Wondery is one of the largest remaining independent podcast companies, with popular shows like "Dr. Death," "This Is Actually Happening," and "Business Wars."
