Podcasting has been around for quite some time, nearly 15 or more years and counting. In 2004, the term “podcasting was coined by newspaper journalist Ben Hammersly as he wrote about the potential for boom in amateur radio.
Due to cheap MP3 players, blogging, and audio software, online radio became a thing. A year or so later, Apple releases iTunes in 2005 and hits 1 billion subscribers in 2013.
One of the most recent milestones of 2020 in podcasting is the Spotify and Joe Rogan $100 million licensing deal for his podcast and podcast content.
