The atom bomb of podcasting was dropped by Apple when they incorporated podcasting support in iTunes 4.9. Wired.com interviews ‘self-proclaimed tech geek Brian Reid” who hosted “Sex Talk”, a podcast. “Apple counted more than 1 million podcast subscriptions through iTunes in the first two days alone, according to a company press release.” “Paul Saurini, whose Denver-based Barefoot Radio podcast focuses largely on news items with some white-trash element to them, had to suddenly upgrade his server bandwidth package from $25 a month for 100 GB to a $300-a-month package for 1,200 GB after the new traffic exceeded his limit.”
And I admit, I’m also huge on podcasting. I added Rocketboom.com (my favorite vlog) first, and then worked on some more music, news, and entertainment. Podcasting is new new black.
