Mike Allen, at online news site Axios, posts about “peak podcasts.” Remember peak oil? He quotes Jennifer Miller in a New York Times article about the number of podcasts and how quickly they fade. The “frequency with which podcasts start (and then end, or ‘podfade,’ as it’s coming to be known in the trade) has produced a degree of cultural exhaustion.”
I never listen to podcasts myself. I watch videos rarely. I read much faster than people talk, and I tend to skim over the dull parts. Hard to do with audio and video recordings.
