Podcasting: The new fireside chat

Posted by lizzybee1002 on December 11, 2007

Podcasting came onto the “tech” scene in 2004/05 and has been slowly growing in popularity since.  My paper went over iTunes U and other areas and technology of podcasting.  The statistics that are out there so far and if podcasting really helps libraries and connect to their communities.  A strong focus is on the academic libraries and how they are succeeding and growing quickly while the public library sector is growing slowly.

Podcasting is most popular among certain age groups (24-44) and males are either the podcasters or the listeners by almost half.  Podcasting is a fascinating topic and it will be interesting to see if this will be the new radio or if it will be the next 8 track and obsolete so fast no one misses it.
