Podcasts used to have to be free, but now you can sell subscriptions to them. That makes them as viable a media as books, films, or apps. Producing a podcast can be as easy as recording a table reading of a script with actors, chatting with one or more informed friends about your favorite TV shows, or reading great essays or stories you've written about well known topics. Podcasts can can have as many or few episodes as you like, you can have one or many, and what you create lives forever (growing your fanbase and promoting your work) for years online.

They are good marketing, good fun, and with the advent of the ability to sell subscriptions, they will be swiftly become very good business. In fact, for millions of creators they already are. Very popular podcasts do become TV shows, and very popular podcasts make their owners wealthy through book sales, writing gigs, donations, etc. Good podcasts make great credits and great work samples, and they take so little time and money to produce . . .
