There are so many amazing things about podcasting; it truly is an amazing hobby. The amount of love and care that gets put into making this unique form of audio content is unbelievable. I have been a podcast fan, on and off, for about ten years. In that time, I have listened to news podcasts, pop culture podcasts, and actual plays (of course). Every episode that I listen to, I am floored by the amount of work put into this content. And I have barely scratched the surface of the world of podcasting!
During a bout of Twitter Drama™ a few months back, I made a comment referring to the world of audio fiction as a community, and someone fired back that no. It wasn’t a community. It was a Job. Of all of the things said during that long day of internet spite slinging, that was the one that stuck in my mind.
