Anyways, I love podcasts. The democratization of the media through the digital revolution is amazing, and allows independent audio producers, such as myself, the ability to publish our stories independently, develop an audience, and in some cases make some money. It truly is a game changer. But you know what I think would be cool addition to the podcast phenomenon? Distributing them on either a cassette tape, vinyl record, or CD.
We all love the ease of podcasts. We subscribe to a particular shows RSS feed, and then we are guaranteed new episodes whenever one is published. But what would it be like to create almost a mix tape of podcasts that follow a common theme, topic, and guest? I think it could add an interesting element to it. Plus with the resurgence of analog technologies, it may create a cool marketing gimmick for a new program.
Also, how cool would it be to get a podcast....on vinyl? I would spend money on that.
