Relay.fm is a new podcast network by Mike Hurley and Stephen Hackett that aggregates new shows with tried and true podcasters I’ve enjoyed in the past. Inquisitive is the spiritual successor to ⌘+Space and Connected is the successor to the The Prompt show.
I’m particularly looking forward to Jason Snell’s new show Upgrade.
I listen to at least 6 podcast episodes a day across many different genres and several networks. It’s one of my favorite forms of media. Podcasts are getting better every month and the variety is becoming a bit overwhelming.1 Finding time to listen to everything I want to is very difficult. I make room for my favorites though.
The nice thing about networks is that they make it easy to find shows of the same quality and motivation all in the same place. Relay.fm is a good example.
It reminds me of the early days of cable TV when it exploded from a dozen channels to hundreds. ↩
