Abstract

This chapter seeks to assert that podcasts are a distinct media form and that although they might exhibit a ‘radioness’, they should be treated as a medium in their own right. This distinctiveness has been achieved over time through a process in which podcasters have asserted their own media identity. The chapter maps this development process using business models and a survey of practising podcasters, concluding that a new lens of ‘podcast studies’ is required to fully appreciate the nuances of this medium.
