Podcasts are this year’s big thing, apparently. Or was that last year? Or the year before that? It’s difficult to keep up.
They’re likely a big thing due to the fairly big following true crime podcast Serial attracted and the attendant interest suddenly shown in podcasts by big media.
Unsurprisingly a lot of people have been listening to podcasts for quite a few years before Serial‘s debut.
Here’s a snapshot of some – but not all – of the podcasts I regularly listen to via the mostly excellent and Australian made Pocket Casts podcast app.
Select is known as “the monthly that kickstarted Britpop” in the 1990s for what that’s worth.
(That means/meant a lot to me. Your interest may vary.)
It’s good to hear ‘clever talk about music and pop culture’ by Harrison and guests — invariably UK rock scribes whose words I devoured over the years of my misspent youth — and know they’re still out there (hopefully) making a living from the writing game despite the demise of several music mags over the past few years.
Give the Bigmouth podcast a go if you’re interested in music. And pop culture.
There’s also a blog for words to read.
The return of blogs is next year’s big thing, apparently.
