I got into podcasting a decade ago. Since then, I've seen it change from a fledging industry with little revenue flowing through it and flourish into a genuine media industry with billions in ad revenue available every year, the teething problems of a measurement industry, and the "boom" of 2019-2021 (ish).
There are people who have been in this game longer than me, and we've all seen the industry change. I've spoken about podcasting becoming a genuine "industry" many, many times but right now, we're at an inflection point in the journey of podcasting and there are two ways to approach it mentally: we embrace it and do our bit to innovate, or we shout loudly that "it's not what it was, so can't be good" and let the industry pass us by.
Which will you choose?
