It's been 2 years since we have caught up with Perry Michael Simon from AllAccess.com on this podcast. He has a pretty good idea of what is going on in the radio and podcast business given that he writes about it weekly, provides talk topics on a twitter account, and attends a dozen radio and radio-related conferences annually. If you get a chance, follow his twitter account just for the joy in hearing about all the goings on at these conferences.
He is also the host on the Evening Bulletin podcast; a two minute pieces of news and subject commentary - named after the long departed Philadelphia newspaper. (RIP 1847-1982)
In this episode, we talk about how little has changed about radio, while everything around radio has changed. We also wonder what the next breakout hit is going to be for both radio and podcast. After all, it has been 18 years since classic hits appeared on the scene, and 4 since Serial become a podcast phenomenon. What's next? We aren't sure - but Perry has some ideas of what needs to happen.
A few weeks ago we had Matt Fogarty on the podcast to talk a bit about his voiceover career to date and where he takes it next. Matt's voiceover business, Matt Fogerty VO, is now a supporter of the podcast and we will acknowledge that for the next little while before the show starts. Thanks Matt for helping us out! Needless to say, if your station is looking for an up and coming imaging voice. Click Here.
