Can Podcasting Crest the Hill?

Posted By on March 11, 2015

adaptIn an interesting article in Midroll, Paul Riismandel argues that a recent critical article from Variety entitled “Why Serial Won’t Do Much for Podcasting or Hollywood” just doesn’t get it. The Variety article suggests exactly what it promises in the title- in that the explosively popular Serial from NPR won’t make any inroads into adapting its radio series into movies or even make a breakthrough for the relatively small listening audience of the podcast.

Riismandel, however provides a couple of examples as to how that’s already happened, and podcasts are ready for the big show. What do you think?
