NYT Seriously Into Podcasting

Politico:

Today, as the Times announces its fourth new podcast of the modern era, and an agreement to use state-of-the-art podcast-serving technology, 36 percent of Americans listen to podcasts and 55 percent have heard of them.


“Jenna and I are basically talking about aspects of life and popular culture and things happening in the world,” the Times’ Wesley Morris told me Monday, sketching out “Still Processing,” the show announced today.

I guess I'm old school, but I came up in podcasting when it was ok--even encouraged--to be raw and real.  I just don't get that from the big media shows, as good and as important as they are to the genre.  

What I want is Network 23.  We get the New York Times. 

Go figure.
