Essential Listening: Poker Dealings

Posted In: Weekend Reads

Like all new forms of communication, the podcast presents a problem for established media. For example, National Public Radio (NPR), which has been at the forefront of the podcasting revolution, is now taking a step back. Joshua Benton at NiemanLab reports on NPR’s decision to stop promoting its podcasts on air. The suspicion is that NPR’s push into the new form may have created some tension with its local affiliates.

Despite this setback, podcasts are growing increasingly ubiquitous and have even found their way into the classroom. Michael Godsey of The Atlantic explores how Serial and This American Life are being used to teach a range of subjects. This trend will only gather momentum as the medium becomes easier to produce. Fitz Tepper of TechCrunch takes a close look at one recent advance on that front, exploring Cast, a fully cloud-based, end-to-end solution for podcast creators.

For a wide array of additional podcasts, you can access earlier editions of Essential Listening.
