Podcasts have become popular in recent years. The medium started in the 1980s. However, it was able to crossover to a popular genre when the Internet and audio devices such as smartphones and tablets came about. Many people appeal to them because they are uncensored and free to listen to.

There are many podcasts today that have shaped the format of the genre. For instance, the Joe Rogan podcast is at the top of the list. He touches on many subjects, including sports and politics. Along with that, the Joe Budden Podcast has shaped the urban culture, where he and his crew touch on aspects of the music industry, as well as popular culture.

Podcasting was developed as an audio medium in the 1980s. The inception of broadband internet and portable digital audio playback devices called iPods and podcasting began to take the world by storm in late 2004. These podcasts are, most of the time, free to the listener and are readily available to the listener. Before the cultivation of the worldwide web, RCS (radio computing services) provided talk associated programming and music to radio stations in a digital format.

Before the internet and online downloading, MIDI format, as well as Mbone, Multicast Network was utilized to distribute video and audio files. The jukebox and websites were the early providers of sorting through and picking out music until the internet reached it’s prime.
