Why Are Podcasts Becoming So Popular?
Why are podcasts becoming so popular? I think there's a few basic reasons why they're becoming so popular. Podcasting has opened up this whole new channel for creation, but the thing that it offers you the listener is it's kind of like the Netflix of audio.
You can listen on demand. You can listen when you want, how you want, as much or as little as you want. You can rewind and some podcast players even allow you to speed up the audio and things like that. You don't have to be tuning in at a certain time or pre-recording or anything like that. It's right there. It's available on your phone, it's like the Netflix of audio it's perfect. This whole New World of content.
I remember when I first experienced podcasts. I grew up on talk radio, I've loved talk radio my whole life and then when I experienced podcasts it was incredible. I could listen to whoever I wanted, when I wanted, when I'm going to sleep, when I'm driving, whatever I want to do. I don't have to be dialed in to whatever's playing on the radio. I can listen to what I want to listen to, but here's the problem with podcasts.
There's over six hundred and sixty thousand podcasts out there, and here's the thing; something like ninety percent of them never produce more than ten shows. It's mall time amateurs, which is okay, that have only ever produced a couple of shows. And another majority of the remaining ten percent never produce more than fifty shows.
So you've got all these different listings that are kinda clogging up the system. And there's not really a good directory. You can find directories that show everything, but it's really kind of hard to sort through that and find a good podcast. Most of the top charts of the top listings show you what's most popular, but most popular doesn't always mean good.
So if you're interested in checking out a great podcast you might want to check out the Christopher Scott Show. You can get it on most podcasts players and if you go to ChristopherScottShow.com you can even listen right through your browser you don't even need to download an app or sign up for anything or anything like that. You can listen right on the website if you want to.
Hey thanks for listening and make it a great day!
