Podcasts Dead? One Billion Podcast Subscriptions Beg To Differ

Every once in a while, you hear some wag somewhere say “podcasts are so dead.” We’d have to shake our heads and wonder at those expert commentaries, then, when we hear Apple announcing their one billionth podcast subscription in iTunes yesterday.

That’s one billion subscribers listening to eight million episodes of 250,000 podcasts, according to MacWorld.

Instead of listening to the naysayers, then, you should find yourself a podcast to listen to instead.

Do you still listen to podcasts? What’s your favorite? Let us know in the comments.
