What is a podcast? Hint: It’s not an audio file. In fact, in 2004, the first podcasts were special because they were downloaded automatically via RSS feeds. In today’s streaming world, it’s hard to imagine how revolutionary this innovation was.

Richard Taylor is a legendary podcaster who was there to witness the birth of a new medium that since has grown into a global phenomenon.
