What happened to podcasting?
It was only a few years ago I was receiving numerous dissertations about the future of new media, radio broadcasting and podcasting. Soon after, social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter arrived and stole their thunder. An article from the BBC has some interesting figures revealing that podcasting is more popular than ever with more than eight million adults in the UK - around 16% of the adult population - having downloaded a podcast, with almost half listening to one at least once a week.
