What is the use of podcasts?

We are living in a day where everything is required to be very quick and immediate and reaching the consumers has become the number one priority, and no one can take any chances in lagging behind on the market; thus the first person to hit the market  with quality content is the winner. To hit the market in an analog format is very difficult and to reach all the different countries makes it difficult.

In the early 21st century with the devices like iPod by apple, it made it very easy for people to carry a huge collection of audio and video files everywhere on a tiny device.

In order for the content to be available to everybody to download and listen to or watch all the file were put online, and they were available for download online. The word podcast came into existence with two different words being combined which are the word iPod and the word broadcast being combined to create the word podcast.

But even before the word podcast came into existence, it was already on practice to upload audio files in order for the listeners to download the audio files and listen to them.  On the October of 2003, the weekly show called the backstage pass started to upload their aired files on to their website. This was the starter of the podcasting trend it was carried on further channels like the BBC, CBC radio one, public radio these were the followers of the method of podcasting.

It slowly began to develop apace among the artists of the musical industry in order for them to reach their audience quickly. Today we are living in a time were convenience is given much importance and many people don’t like carry around a lot of things and make the burden even much thus everyone rely on the usage of the podcasts.

Conclusion

As Podcasters, it is essential to create pieces worth listening to. There is no point in starting a podcast just for the sake of it, so ensure you do your background search before you get into it and invest. If there are too many people podcasting in the same space, it means that all those people are interested in that particular topic. Put in your unique way of talking and thinking about specific ideas and issues and make it as much as you can about your personality so that it’ll add a personal touch to the whole thing.
