International Podcast Day is a celebration dedicated to the invention that changed the way people think about radio. If you don’t know what a podcast is, you’re in luck, as you’ve yet to discover the multifaceted world of audio.
Radio is from the last century, because today the world is moving from listening to radio stations to listening to podcasts. Many podcasters reach millions of people with their favorite music, books, and blogs. At any time, you can choose a genre or a specific work. This is the main difference between podcasts and radio. The world consumes audio in a completely different way today, so it’s only fair that the new format deserves a celebration.
Why podcasts are popular
- Most are free or very inexpensive, the only caveat is that they have ads, but not much.
- All you need to listen is internet access.
- If you have a favorite series, you can listen to the most memorable episodes, instead of listening to everything.
How to take part
Dedicate a day to listening to podcasts, but be prepared – it’s addictive, this hobby can easily turn into an obsession. Build your own playlist of your favorites to listen to on the go. Try creating your own podcast; you have everything you need and don’t need to buy anything. Many wonderful shows persist only on private donations and advertising, support them by donating what you can.
