The Sonic Society

Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

Asked Again… Maybe… Just Maybe?

podcastbigthingLike a nervous groundhog peering into the early morning light from the darkness, Hindustan Times ask the perennial question: “Could podcasting possibly be the next big thing?”

When they ask that question, the early adopters of the new age of modern audio drama just sort of wave like they have been waving for the last ten years. OF COURSE, podcasting has infinite opportunities and appeal. But those who think radio has been dead for a long time forget that there are still plenty of radio stations out there. The difference is that with the breakdown of corporate structures in the new media, there’s a whole lot more choices. Someone asked me what podcasting was, the other day.

My new answer is, “As satellite channels are to the bunny-eared antenna of television reception, podcasting is to terrestrial radio.”

Welcome to the new age of entertainment. We’ve been here a while. 🙂
