Jason was music director at KRCW, the LA NPR station, is also a DJ with a lot of experienced interviewing musicians, and now hosts a new podcast, The Backstory. He joins Mark and Erica to discuss the creative and business possibilities of podcasting in comparison to radio, what their futures may hold, and his own journey between the two media.
Here’s some comparison data and other basic information on radio and podcasts:
- “Audio and Podcasting Fact Sheet” from journalism.org
- “Podcast vs Radio: What Is the Difference?” from Buzzsprout
- “New Podcast Listeners Are Coming from Radio, Not Music” by Bill Rosenblatt
