500 E 4th St
In 2016, podcasters are building mini-empires. Popular hosts generate millions of downloads per month & find creative ways to monetize their shows. Podcasters are transforming the audio industry, growing authentic and meaningful relationships with their listeners like never seen before.
Podcasting hasn't yet eclipsed radio as the preferred audio medium, but with a future of internet-connected cars and rising global smartphone adoption rate, radio is going to disappear. And the podcasters will be king & queens of audio.
