THE END OF PODCASTS?

It’s worth noting that a lot of the podcasts that I was a fan of, have given up the ghost or are giving up the ghost.

Particularly if you go back and look at my Welles Award Winners, quite a few of those shows have moved on. Which is, to be fair, only natural that what amounts to a hobby, something you started to have fun, should be stopped when it stops being fun, and/or becomes a drain on you… time or money wise.

That said I do worry when the landscape of podcasts is shorn of the people who started it for the love. I think that will only leave the people, and big companies, that use it solely as a form of marketing.

So here’s a roll call of the fallen dead:

MONDO MOVIES -Welles Award Winner

FREQUENCY OF FEAR -Welles Award Winner

Q & A with Jeff Goldsmith

WATCHING THE DIRECTORS

COMIC BOOK SAVANT

GEEK SYNDICATE (closes shop in September, will be missed, easily in my top 3)- Welles Award Winner

So if those are the ones that are gone, what remains? We’ll cover that… next installment. See you then! :) .

p.s. I had incorrectly listed BATTLESHIP PRETENSION as a defunct podcast, but the host of the show corrected me. The guys are alive and well and you can view them here. I recommend trying them out.
