“Wherever you get your podcasts.”

Anil Dash:

Being able to say, “wherever you get your podcasts” is a radical statement. Because what it represents is the triumph of exactly the kind of technology that’s supposed to be impossible: open, empowering tech that’s not owned by any one company, that can’t be controlled by any one company, and that allows people to have ownership over their work and their relationship with their audience.

I just said this on this week’s Decoder with Casey, but at this point it’s easy to see how algorithmic media platforms tend to push people and content into being more or less the same, but open distribution protocols like email and podcasts tend to allow for a much richer set of creators and formats. It feels like that’s an important lesson for the next generation of the internet!
