I’m not a fan of podcasts in general. I’ve always thought they’re kind of niche and a stunningly large number of them are atrocious.
What I can’t figure out is why so many people create podcasts. It’s not like writing blogs, which apparently any idiot can do – now you have to create some listenable content and produce it too. Maybe podcasts are just providing easy production for people who think they’re talented and have no ability to judge artistic merit. Everyone wants to be a star, and the fact that the odds are soooo incredibly stacked against them doesn’t deter them.Must be the same as why otherwise sane people buy lottery tickets.
For now, I’m going to continue to ignore podcasts for personal use, but watch carefully to see if anything interesting emerges. I hear that single-celled amoebas eventually turned into Sophia Loren, so anything’s possible.
