Podcast: from Free to Paid?

Robyn Tippins: The Ricky Gervais show becomes the first major podcast to go from completely free to available only on a paid basis. Audible will charge $1.95 per episode or $6.95 for the season.


Randy: $2 for a podcast? I don't even listen to the free ones.

The Ricky Gervais podcast is really funny, but...

The competition is free, and there are already way more podcasts than I have hours in the day to listen to them.

...addendum to the above post:

I think ultimately there will be some revenue producing podcasts, but ultimately I think advertising/sponsorship is  a much more viable model than paid subscriptions.
