Ben Johnson and Alberto Martinez are long-time RSS and podcasting enthusiasts. Together, they host a weekly podcast, where they interview guests, share stories and insights about RSS technology, and discuss the history of podcasting in general.

A Brief History of Podcasting

The concept of RSS podcasting dates back to the early 2000s. Prior to this, webmasters and other web-savvy individuals would use HTML to “push” content to their websites.

It wasn’t until late 2004 that podcasting as we know it today became popular. Then Apple released iTunes 4.9, which included a “Podcasts” tab. This made it easy for people to search and subscribe to RSS feeds.

From there, podcasting exploded and podcasting networks began to pop up. These networks allowed podcasters to syndicate their RSS feeds, while also helping to promote their podcasts.

The Impact of Podcasting

Since then, podcasting has had a major impact on the world of media, technology, and communication. Podcasts have become an incredibly popular form of entertainment, with people listening to podcasts for information, advice, and entertainment.

RSS podcasting has become an essential part of the podcasting ecosystem. From helping podcast producers to syndicate their content, to helping listeners to keep track of their favorite podcasts, RSS podcasting has made podcasting easier and more accessible than ever.
