The Podcast Movement is growing fast... very fast. According to a study carried out by Edison Research, over 50% of the U.S. population over the age of 12 have listened to a podcast at least once. The same study also revealed that one-third of those reported individuals listened to a podcast in the last 30 days. This represents a remarkable 90 million monthly listeners – and counting.
As podcasts continue to transform the audio content and media landscapes, big companies are finally starting to take note. What is clear is that a growing listener base means big bucks, and companies are making the appropriate maneuvers to ensure they are in a position to capitalize on an increasing global appetite for podcasting.
So What’s Next?
The biggest podcaster in the world recently touted the important of video podcasting in the podcast industry.
