Hey Jason got a question for you and it is in reference to this prediction:
12. No podcasting company will have any significant success in 2006, but a number of podcasters will be offered great jobs at Sirius and XM Radio.
How can you say no one will have significant success in 2006, when Podcast Connect has seen huge success this year. I don’t measure success in millions of dollars like you do, but I do measure success in several other ways.
Success is TechPodcasts.com and the reporting Affiliates are reaching 500,000 plus individual listeners each month, with podcasters putting some sponsorship money in their pockets for the past 6 months. Some of the podcasters are paying their house payments with their earnings. I think that is success don’t you!
Success is the launch of the very first Citizen Media Podcast News Outlet at PodcasterNews.com which in it’s first 30 days has built up to 50 content producers contributing weekly content, by creating short five minute podcasts on news, lifestyle and general interest stories. Don’t even get me started on the mechanics of the engine that runs podcasternews.com, we are now licensing that engine to various organizations nationwide that are rolling out podcasting solutions. Pretty good for a startup that is being built while we all have day jobs!
We have had a great 2005, and I expect 2006 to be that much better and then some. If XM or Sirius want to talk we will be happy to talk to them but guess what are making this evolution happen without them. For that I am making it my personal challenge to insure that prediction #12 is wrong! [Jason Calacanis]
