Is Video Podcasting the Way of the Future?
In his article on Medium in early 2021 when Evo Terra said, “video [is] for work, audio is for an escape.” He explained that after 2020 gave us a year almost everything transitioning from in-person interaction to video only, quite frankly he is sick of video. To him, video is supposed to be for work and audio is his means of escape.
For some people, they simply want to put their headphones in and listen to a podcast host as the only voice in their ears. There is something intimate about the experience that allows the listener to feel drawn in to the message or story they are consuming, and tune out the rest of the world.
He said in his article, “We know that people use podcasting as a way to escape the hustle-and-bustle of their busy lives, either taking some alone-time, getting some education, catching up with current events, or a myriad of other reasons that don’t require their facial expressions to be placed on display.”
Is Evo right? Maybe, maybe not.
