Podcasting continues to grow in popularity and evolve everyday. New podcasts are created daily by independents, networks, and corporations. New listeners are also coming online discovering the benefits of on-demand audio.
Deloitte predicts the global podcasting market will surpass $1 billion in 2020, still tiny compared with radio’s $42 billion. Spotify, Apple, and other companies are battling to capitalize on the podcast market.
To stay informed as a creator, listener, or industry observer, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite podcast newsletters. I’m quite concerned that my inbox will explode, but it’s a small price to pay to bring you this list.
