The internet has changed almost everything it’s touched since it came into existence, and how we send and receive information, from written to video, has been one of the mediums most changed. Even radio has not been immune to this, with streaming radio being increasingly popular, and ‘local radio’ taking on a whole new meaning. Out of this shifting of paradigms has come a new imagining of an old idea, radio broadcasts and most specifically radio talk shows/dramas. International Podcast Day celebrates this innovation and all the wonderful things that have come from it.
History of International Podcast Day
Let’s start off
You want a horror podcast? You can enjoy things like “The Black Tapes” or “Tanis”, there are science fiction broadcasts, Zombie broadcasts (“We’re alive!” is a personal favorite of ours), even broadcasts talking about mythology (“Lore”). There are podcasts for everything you can imagine, gardening, car repair, hunting, computer programming, and just plain news on recent events and goings on. That’s the glory of the podcast, the ability to create content targeting a specific interest group. There’s even a significant amount of money to be made, popular broadcasts are often able to pair with companies like Audible to get paid advertising done on their show.
