The Age of Podcasts

Podcasts have existed on the web for nearly a decade and a half now and are the same now as they were initially. Some people consider podcasts a natural extension of the Radio era, and in many ways, it is.

Podcasts today are a platform for educators, business advertisers, and advocates to voice their opinions without any heavy investment or fear of failure. There is no particular limit to what a podcast could be about. Their hosts could talk about tech, business, worldly problems, or podcasts about two people talking. And so, the world of crypto was not left out.

Crypto podcasts are a great way for the everyday busy worker to use the time they have commuting, eating, or exercising to hear about some of the most exciting projects in the space. The podcast hosts and collaborators try to ensure that their listeners can understand and relate most efficiently.
