Celebrate International Podcast Day25 September 2021
In the past, people are only usually daydreaming about having their own radio show and their music to be heard by listeners all over the world. But in order to do it all, you needed to have many contacts first or a lot of money to have your voice heard.
These kinds of goals were a long-term project as it requires a significant investment of time and money. But now, thanks to the power and magic of the internet that there is no reason why an individual with a computer can't take a position as a reporter, a radio disc jockey, or a talk show presenter. These are all made possible by blogging and social media like podcasting.
It all started in 2004 when MTV video jockey Adam Curry and software engineer Dave Winer co-invented podcasting. Curry developed an application called iPodder that allowed him to automatically download internet radio broadcasts to his iPod. His bright concept was adopted and cultivated by many developers, and that’s how podcasting was created.
Let’s talk about podcasts

There are also audio files with an on-demand subscription service that lets users to create and have a library of podcasts at their disposal. Whereas radio schedules are imposed on broadcast radio, podcasts, on the other hand are always accessible, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The concept of podcasts is similar to that of binge-watching a TV series. In here, we can listen either frequently or continuously to our favorite podcasters. Additionally, podcast subjects vary that creates a diversity of podcast formats as well.
In this type of podcast, the host brings in a guest and speaks to them about a certain subject or topic for that specific episode. It could be related to the life of the guest or in connection with the podcast's advocacy or theme.
In addition to delivering information, the host and co-host contribute to the discussion. They talk to one other naturally having a commentary or conversation about the topic at hand.
