Howard Stern is under fire for claiming that “podcasts” are for losers and he claims that they don’t make any money off of that stuff.
Ya know something, I tried to listen to podcasts myself and I stopped listening to them. I tried to listen to Adam Carolla’s podcast, the Nerdist with Chris Hardwick and Chris Jericho’s “Talk Is Jericho” but they all suck. I got bored easily and stopped listening to them. Howard is actually right that podcast people are pretty boring.
What Howard is saying here is that it takes a lot of skill, training and talent to get into talk radio. Howard knows from experience ’cause he didn’t get into the “talk radio” business over night, it took him a long time to get where he is now. When Howard started off, I think he started off as a radio DJ and he went from there.
To be good at talk show radio stuff, you have to have good speaking “skills” for one and that takes years of work. You may not like them but think about why Rush Limbaugh, Alex Jones and Glenn Beck are well-known talk show guys? It’s because they have years of experience in broadcasting probably. They proved their worth which is why they are still doing their thing today.
I think celebrities and professional wrestlers who have their own podcast show don’t have much of a career.
I mean, think of all the loads of work put into a podcast? It’s gotta take hours to perfect a podcast and put it together into one mp3 to upload it for the internet. A podcast also have to take a lot of space too, though. I’m sure it takes hours to edit your podcast and make it perfect enough and make it sound good enough. It’s just a waste of time.
Howard’s fans are angry at his opinion and defending “podcasts” but I think it’s because they can’t accept the truth and hate hearing it. Howard brings up valid points. I tried to get into podcasts myself but I stopped listening to them. Podcasts are for amateurs and hobbyists who don’t have a life pretty much.
Professional radio talk show hosts such as Howard Stern, Rush Limbaugh, Alex Jones, Glenn Beck, etc. they spent most of their life in broadcast training and they proved their worth.
I thought about starting my own podcast but I’ve decided not to and will not waste all that time in all that work. I don’t listen to professional “talk radio” also but I respect them ’cause it takes blood, sweat and tears to go through all that.
Howard has a right to an opinion and if you don’t like it, why are you listening to him?
