Why are we doing this?
We've been at this podcasting thing for a long time! Around the summer of 2007, we got tired of listening to terrestrial radio, and all of the shows we liked on satellite radio were hard to listen to if we weren't in the car. So when we heard about podcasts, it was really the best of both worlds. Great talk radio, uncensored, and the freedom to listen whenever we wanted. We've been hooked to the medium ever since.
Right around 2017, we began to notice a big uptick of new podcasts. Three years later, podcasting has ballooned to the point where it's nearly impossible to spend five minutes on social media and not see a new podcast you've never listened to. More importantly, podcasters that have been grinding for years have become nearly invisible to a new audience. On top of all the new podcasts by regular folks, celebrities and businesses have flooded the market as well. In spite of that, we thought it would be nice to help out podcasters and listeners.
On a regular basis, we're committed to highlighting independent podcasts that have put their souls into their craft. At the same time, we believe this also helps listeners to enjoy something truly great without wasting countless hours scrolling through podcast apps. There are so many treasures to be found in the podcast ecosystem, and we're here to help you find them.
