Topic-specific radio talk shows with commentaries, interviews and debates can now be heard at a time and place of listener's choosing. Consider benefit of educational tutorials and foreign language instruction; lessons could be listened to during a work commute. Supplementary class lectures, step by step tutorials or walking guides are all possible using podcasting. An unlimited collection of books read aloud for elderly or visually-impaired listeners only scratch surface of what is possible in future of podcasting.
The fate of podcasting is in hands of subscribers. The subscriber can easily delete podcast feeds that do not satisfy their needs with single tap of a button. Ultimately, subscriber maintains control and determines what podcasts are deemed successful. This intrinsically builds in a quality control level and will ensure that more innovative instructional and interesting podcast feeds survive.
The technology is fresh and, like Internet, is opening doors to entrepreneurs. As podcasting evolves, users will find more creative kinds of audio content to deliver. The low barrier to entry has forced this new medium to forefront, as businesses and individuals have really little to lose in adding podcasting as a communication channel.
