There is literally never a time that I won't advocate for radio to be people's number one source of audio infotainment. And according to a Forbes article this past June, it totally is. Radio accounts for 87% of audio infotainment consumption despite years and years of skepticism and conjecture that podcasts along with streaming services would kill the medium. But the truth is that podcasting and radio are different animals and don't deserve comparison. I fully support podcasts as another form of entertainment to add to your listening pleasure.

If you are interested in a certain topic, something more niche, there's a podcast for that! And here in Boise there are podcasts made for us by us that deserve your attention.
