With almost 15 years of existence, it must be time to organize all podcasters under a governing body, right?
Not so fast. I can offer you many reasons why that's likely not to exceed. More than 600,000 reasons, come to think of it.
In this short episode, I inject a bit of reality into the question by shattering a few misconceptions about the "specialness" of podcasters compared to other forms of digital content. But I also talk about some very good reasons to organize sub-sets of the entire ecosystem. (So it's not a total downer.)
