International Podcast Day is an annual celebration that is observed on September 30th of each year. Podcasts are usually digital audio recordings of radio-style programs or a series of audio files that are subscription-based. The day was celebrated to promote the growing podcasts media and its technologies.
“Music is the greatest communication in the world. Even if people don’t understand the language that you’re singing in, they still know good music when they hear it.” – Lou Rawls
History of International Podcast Day
International Podcast Day was first established in the year 2014 by Steve Lee, who was the founder of Modern Life Network. The celebrations of the day are to raise awareness about podcasting as it is an excellent entertainment and educational medium right now. A podcast is typically a series of shows much like a radio show that can be listened by visiting the official website, and are accessible via an app or a digital media player. Podcasts are on-demand subscription based audio files. The listener can create a library of podcasts which has no schedule accessible by anyone, anywhere, unlike the radio broadcasts. Podcast Day lets you connect with the fellow podcasters, podcast listeners, and other audio enthusiasts. You can choose from different artists, genres and more. International Podcast Day celebrates this innovation in the music streaming and all the incredible things that have come from it.
