Relating America's Car Obsession To Its Dominance In Podcasting
Rethinking the value of creating content and the Sunday driver.
While cars are a staple in most countries, America clearly has an obsession with automobiles that's hard to top. Perhaps it's no coincidence that America also dominates the podcasting scene, counting either creators or listeners.
No, I'm kidding. It's pure coincidence. But the correlation does allow me to pontification on why the two are similar, even though completely unrelated.
In America, we have a concept of a "Sunday drive", where one drives around rather aimlessly, without a particular destination in mind. And that' a good metaphor for this episode, since I really didn't have a place I was trying to take it.
But I think we wound up somewhere interesting and of value to "creators" of podcasts, whatever that might mean.
