Understanding Podcasting! is an attempt to get at the real essence of podcasting. Plenty of sites discuss the mechanics, especially for beginners. Well, it’s time to stop talking only to beginners. Let’s get philosophical!
This is a journey to explore what podcasting is, what it might be, and what it might mean to the world.
Podcasting is a new medium. The implications of it are just starting to be understood. Some wonder if it is a fad, or if it represents a fundamental shift in entertainment, information delivery, marketing and more. Others wonder if what we see today is the way that it will be forever.
I think there is room to explore here. This podcast is more about philosophy than technology, more about what you can or should be able to do with podcasting, and much less about the specifics of technology as it exists today.
If you are looking for a way to learn how to podcast, you probably aren’t going to find much here.
If you are looking for a way to see why to podcast — both today and tomorrow — then you are in the right place.
