Mainstream Podcasting Fails To Deliver

This week the Radio Times promised us a review of The 20 Best Podcasts of 2019.  Yay!! I thought. Let’s see who’s made it to the ears of the judges!

Not a simple music-oriented podcast made it to the list.  All were “professionally” produced podcasts by celebrities, sports people, comedians or journalists, who have clearly spotted that commissioning a podcast is a lot cheaper (and quicker) than commissioning a Radio or TV series .

This is where podcasting is these days.  Every celebrity is a podcaster.  My wife and always smile when a new podcast is announced on the TV.

“Oh really?  A Podcast?  Tho’d have thunk it?”

Podcasting is no-longer the purview of the passionate amateur who does it for the love of their topic.  Or rather it still is their purview, but they are completely drowned out by the sheer quantity of podcasts produced by “mainstream” antertainment people we already know.

I know it sounds like sour-grapes when I whinge about podcasts.  The award I won for podcasting was back in 2010 and the podisphere has changed a lot since then.  I never expected to win anything then, and I certainly have no chance now.  But I’m not whinging about me, I’m whinging that there are some serious good Podcasts out there that deserve to be discovered by a wider audience.

Surely the Radio Times reviewer could have spent just a little more time digging into the “independent” podcasts that are out there, and have been out there for years.

I guess I’m going to have to start my own review……

BBC Talk Twaddle About Podcasts

It makes me cross when people start talking about podcasts and mention “breakthroughs” in 2012 or 2014.  I’ve just read this article: How podcasts went from unlistenable to unmissable, by

Although factually reporting that it was Guardian reporter Ben Hammersley  who coined the phrase “Podcast” the article completely misses out the early interest and uptake of podcasts in the noughties.

Especially for the BBC it’s a shame that one of their own, Rowley Cutler, is so often ignored. Although Rowley’s Dark Compass is produced entirely independently of the BBC, he’s been working for them for many years, knows so much about the podosphere, being the UK’s longest running music podcaster, since 2004.

Then there’s Adam Curry, the man who invented the first podcatcher, and who went on to co-create the first podcast-focused media company Podshow (later Mevio) and pioneered the use of the Podsafe Music Network.  All of these facts ignored in the article.

Yes, podcasts required thought in the noughties. If you wanted to listen in your car you had to have downloaded them to your mobile device first, but people did that regularly, and it whiled away the many hours of M25 travel that I endured. Listener numbers increased and podcast converences abounded. I’ve lost count of how many events are now labeld as the “first” podcast conference. That happened in 2006 people!!

Nowadays everyone that is a commedian, a musician, or a celebrity seems to be hosting their own podcast. I say “hosting” but they’re not doing it for love of their field. They wouldn’t do it if they weren’t paid, and “season 2” depends on the success of “season 1”. Technology makes listenening easier, but increasingly content is corporate, or aimed at selling tickets for a show.

Remember there are people like Rowley and like me, who were playing this game many many years ago. We made some money from adverts, but we do it for love.  Put that in your article Mr Robertson.
