Podcasting has been on the rise in recent years with more podcasts being produced and the number of listeners going up more than ever. A lot of the talk around podcasting focuses on how to record & edit episodes. However, podcasting is much more than that. Doing a podcast entails finding your own voice, creating a story with it, and establishing an intimate bond between yourself and the listener. To be able to understand these aspects of podcasting, we need to look into why we produce podcasts in the first place, how it all started, and what podcasting represents within the media sphere. As a form of resistance against the white & corporate mainstream media, podcasting needs to be accessible to all budgets, and recording, editing, and promotion costs shouldn't be the reason you don't have a podcast.
