Podcasts are awesome.
I don’t think that requires any clarification or factual support. I love podcasts; therefore, podcasts are awesome. Sound logic, right?
No, probably not. To be honest, podcasts are probably a lot like talk radio was when I was a kid: if you’re in to it, you’re really in to it. Well, I’m really into podcasts. It’s like the golden age of radio all over again, but this time, you can practically curate your own talk radio station by downloading the podcasts that you like, ignoring all those you can’t stand.
Podcasts aren’t new, of course, nor are their universally appealing. The other day, I was talking to someone about a podcast, and they’re response was, “Do people still listen to those?” Yep, certainly not universally appealing. However, I am seeing a new trend emerging in the larger podcasting world, and I couldn’t be more excited.
